I met my wife over the Internet and she lived in Portland and I lived in Maryland.
I was retiring from the Navy and planning to move to Oregon anyway. I drove 2,000 miles in exactly 48 hours because I was anxious to see her.
I didn’t shower or stop the entire trip and had a Belgian Malinois in the back seat shedding.
When I got there I was not looking my best. She walked out of her house and we both stopped and looked at each other.
I think we both knew at that very moment we were meant for each other.
We were together for seven years and had only one argument that entire time. I have never met someone that was so perfect for me like she was.
We were selling our house in Portland to move into Washington on 20 acres, as we both loved the country lifestyle.
We had spent Saturday moving our larger stuff into storage as we were having our house built.
She said she wanted to go to bed because she was so tired from all the heavy lifting. That was the last thing she said.
In the morning she was dead.
People say time heals all wounds. But when you lose a true soulmate, nothing heals the wound.
She will be in my heart forever.
