Today is my wedding day

As a surprise, Ed traveled from his hometown in NY, to be with me the morning of our wedding. I had thought he was going to meet me at the synagogue. He quietly came into my house at some hour when I was asleep, and since I have severe hearing loss, I did not hear him come in. This morning, I found, on my bathroom sink, a jewelry box with "To My Valentine" written on it (Ed slept in the guest bedroom which furthered the surprise when I awoke this morning). Inside the box was his high school ID bracelet that he gave to me when we dated in '64, but took back when I transferred to Temple from Pitt. Another example of how his love for me was born the day he met me...even as young as 17. Today I will wear Ed's ID bracelet as part of my wedding attire. This love story keeps on growing.
