Exactly one year ago, you were diagnosed with a serious illness, and all our dreams came crashing down. Neither one of us thought that we would ever have to deal with something like this in our happy life. You were so remarkably strong during what must have been the most difficult time of your life. No one knows, not even me, how difficult those few months really were for you.
I never thanked you for being so strong and understanding for both our sakes. At that time, I was so afraid for you and for our future together. I still worry sometimes, although I know you have completely defeated the illness. No one understands why we decided to go ahead and get married. If they knew how much we loved each other, they would not even wonder about it. I love you more than you could possibly know, and my love keeps growing every day. I love you so much, and I always will.
