The title of this post is the headline of a love story I just read online that could be closely compared with that of the Notebook. Grab your tissues…I’ve already cried twice.
“When his carers asked Everett Potter if he had a last wish, he knew exactly what he wanted – to give his beloved Betty the diamond ring he could never afford.”
Mr. and Mrs. Potter have been married for 65 years and his wife has dementia but when asked for his dying wish, Mr. Potter requested a diamond ring for Mrs. Potter. She probably won’t remember he gave it to her nor will she recall the ceremony that took place, but it was something he always wanted to do and so he did.
You can read the full story here and be sure to read the whole article. That Everett is a comedian and the story is wonderful.
“I’d be lost without you. You kept me going and kept me young. I remember the times we used to dance around the kitchen, and how good of a cook you were, our walks home from my father’s farm and most of all what nice legs you had. I could say it better if I had all my teeth: I love you forever.” -Mr. Potter
