Just before she left for holiday. It was a beautiful day, the sun shining brighter than ever before. We went for a walk in Thurstaston gardens. She sat on the bench and I lay across it, resting my head on on lap. She kept my hair from getting in my face with her hands, while her own was engulfing her face. I looked up and all I could see was the most beautiful smile ever. It made the sun shine brighter, and the contrast between the sky and the clouds had never before been in such harmony, "perfect" as at that moment. I won't ever forget that moment, but I do wish I had a picture to help me remember that moment from time to time as we get older. Maria, forever loving you.. Roy.
