Remembering love as it was........

Even though it has been several years since my Mother passed away and my Father is in his eighties, I still remember the love that they shared.....
She was a young beauty.....
No amount of stern warnings from my Baba could dissuade her... She was in love......
He was a dashing pilot.......
True Love.
Paul and Emilia
one true love......forever.......

What a beautiful love story, and your mother certainly was a beautiful woman. Some day they will reunite and dance in their arms again in heaven. This is so lovely. Karen Valentine from the Desert Cottage is having a love story sharing on Monday. You should link this lovely post.

There aren't enough True Love stories told. I don't think that there's less romance or belief in life-long love - I think we're just feeling too sophisticated to talk about it.
So glad you did.
