My Young Bride of a way too short 37 years went home to be with the Lord on the afternoon of March 8, 2009. It would be prideful, if not arrogant, to say that no man ever loved a woman more than I loved My Young Bride, but that is a risk worth taking. She was my love and my lifemate. She was the focus and sole recipient of my passion. She was the rudder for a ship that is now terribly adrift.
