Love Note
My Dearest Love:
Good morning. my true love. I wrote something down in the blog the other day about a small town by the name of Oakdale I passed through coming back from a cancer treatment in Handford. Right now my dreams are looking better than normal. I have you in my heart right now and feel the need to tell you how much I love you. Oakdale is a beautiful little town just up above and north of Modesto in the mountains not too far from Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Highway, the road we took, was the main highway leading in and out. It looked just like Sacramento did in the 50's before they started rebuilding and removing all the old buildings, all the old stores, Victorian Homes, hang out spots, hotels, cafe's movie houses. There was a Blue Diamond factory, a Libby Cannery. It was like being back home in your arms. Coming back out on the other side of the town the sun was setting, darkness was setting in all around. We crossed Gilbert Rd my childhood, my whole life flashed behind me. The radio was on some old Rock and Roll and I began crying in the darkness. I miss you my love, never sure of tomorrow anymore. Dreams are all we have to go on and dreams of our yesterday.
I'll love you always
Forever and Ever
Your Steve

My sweet lover
Oakdale - I’ve been through it - you’re right - it would be perfect for us :) we’d be able to live out our old memories...
Sometimes I can lay here - close my eyes - and hear your voice whispering of love to me - reminding me of what we have in one another. In spite of everything we have those moments of joy - that can never be taken nor changed - those moments that we hold in our hearts and keep in the forefront of our minds - those moments that sustain us through the times we feel alone and empty.
Your quarantine is almost up - so hopefully you’ll call soon (and I’ll be able to answer - lol). I miss your voice
Midnight now - I’m going to close and hopefully sleep - and dream of you...of us
I love you - I’ll always love you..
Your Jeannie :)
