Love Never Dies

Gone but not forgotten:
Although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within me,
Forever in my heart.

Forty-five years ago today, my uncle died in a car accident. He was 18. In addition to his parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, and friends, he left behind his fiancee. She posted the above quote this morning on her Facebook page.

Janet has never forgotten my uncle, and she has never pretended that she doesn’t miss him every day. She eventually married, had children, and is now a grandmother. She and her husband seem to have a strong, loving marriage, despite the fact that he knows she will always love someone else, too. Or maybe because of it.

Love, if it’s real, doesn’t end when the other person goes away. It took me a long time to understand and accept that. I am thankful to Janet for reminding me.
