Love Note
(April 14, 2020)



Love Note
My Dearest Love:
I can see us picnicking at Millers park at the end of Broadway on a warm summer afternoon, a blanket spread out on the green grass, a cool breeze blowing off the Sacramento, I can feel you there in my arms your body pressed up against mine. I can remember kissing you, your lips tasting like strawberries. The sun reflecting off your face, so beautiful sitting there watching our old friends walking down the levee. I try hard to remember our conversations - there were many mostly filled with I love yous and plans for the future. Not a day goes by that I don't reminisce about our happiness during our carefree day - we didn't have much but the music always played for us. We never did find the time to build that little white house, the one with the white picket fence on a quiet street, a two car garage, a rock fish pond in the yard, a love seat swing on a front porch like the one at my grandma's house. Was it all true or just another dream we both carry. I love you not just part of the time, but I love you everyday not just part of the time and I will always be here waiting for you. See you in my dreams - I love you.
I'll Always Love You
Forever + Ever + Ever
Your Steve

My sweet love...
I remember being at Miller’s park with you - also recall going out to Slough House - and what was the other one out that way? Oh - Bridge House. I wonder if you can still go there and swim - or if that’s all given way to housing and strip malls?
We cuddled and talked - even in the heat, we had to touch :) - and we believed it would be forever...I guess, in some ways, it has been forever - I love you just as much now as I did then....but the realities have shifted, unfortunately.

One of the things that Carol had was lupus - she had that and RA (rheumatoid arthritis). One of the doctors she saw told us that normally one of those is the primary disease and the other is considered secondary - but in her case he wasn’t sure which would be the primary because they were both so severe.
I am still sorta depressed, but starting to feel better - a little. I read your posts and letters and I worry about you’re doing, etc. it’s so frustrating to not be able to do anything for you when I want to so badly...

I love you Steve - let my love surround you - wish I could hold you - and feel your arms around me, keeping me safe...
Always yours
Always love

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post.

It was heartbreaking to read how much you miss your partner. I'm sure they love you very much.
