Dotsie you are one of the lucky ones, both of you are. I am certain that if Eddie would have lived we would still be together it was that kind of a relationship. Sometimes Vi I think I do feel him by my side and I am positive it is also the reason my second marriage wasn't a barn burner although it did last 14 years, I settled but that never works very long for either party. My third time around was the side affects from insanity caused by caring for a severe dementa patient 24/7 all by myself for 5 years, I was a basket case. He turned out to be a liar and a cad....oh well, live and learn.
