It’s a question we all wonder at some stage of our lives, “what is true love?”… A question only a lucky few can answer and a question almost no one can answer better than John.
While it was John that was in the hospital; his wife of many years was there by his side and sadly, she has the early stages of Alzheimer’s. You can feel the pain in john’s voice when he speaks of it, but when the nurses ask about their relationship the conversation takes another turn.
He beautifully explains his memories, right from their first date on the 28th June 1946. He tells of the little things that make up all his love for his dear wife and lifelong best friend.
He speaks with such warmth and I must say I was overcome with emotion, tears rolled down my cheeks. Sad tears, that his wife is slowly being taken from him before he is ready, happy tears, for he found someone he loved quite so much.
If you have your own definition or story of love then please do post it in the comments below, at happiest we’d always love to hear from you.
