The loss of a dearly loved spouse is never easy to endure, especially after a life-long marriage. The grieving can be overwhelming and never ending. It is not something that anyone wants to contemplate but we feel that we have some idea of the nature of the suffering. We do not. I did not. No matter how deep and loving the marriage was, the finality of death will consume any comfort that we may have that we will have no regrets when the awful time comes. There will be regrets. Foremost among the regrets will be that which was said that should not have been said and that which was not said that should have been said. This short story reveals an approach to a marital relation that can help to prevent those regrets from occurring. I learned this too late while I was writing this short story and its companion book, “I Married My Teacher.” Don’t learn the lesson too late as I did. Take the time to read and learn. It can save you or your dear spouse unnecessary pain during a time when pain will be in abundance.

Good advice given in a touching way. You can tell how much love went into the author's words. He tells us things that are not only important to hear, but he makes you realize how much you should appreciate those you love as much as possible. I could tell his utter dedication to his wife and despair in losing her. He just wants to help others who have lost someone they love too.
