A Widow’s Watch
Gene and I met May 1975. We started officially dating September 1975, the last year before I graduated from nursing school. He was different from the others I dated. He proposed November 4, 1975 and we were united in marriage, September 25, 1976. I loved him when we got married but I fell in love with him after we got married because of the way he treated me. That may not make sense to you but it does to me. There is a distinct difference. Gene died March 4, 2018 as a result of complications from Parkinson’s. He was only 68 years old. His birthday is on January 28th and I don’t really know what to expect. I believe I will be okay.
