What the Heart Has Once Known…
My fears are now more for the future now that we grow older. We have built a life together sharing in everything. But fiscally we are not bound. Glenn was a student, when we built the studio and I could not put his name on anything because at the time he was more of a liability and it would have been detrimental to secure financing. But together we have equally shared in the dream, labor, and completion of the project. My fear is if something happens to me where will he stand? Our hearts may say we are together but the laws of Montana may say we are not. Will he possibly have to pay an inheritance on something he has spent his entire life working to build? I saw this happen over and over years ago with partners when one passed away and the families kicking the remaining one into the cold, leaving them with nothing but adding to the already great sense of loss.
We know in our hearts what we feel is right and we have chosen to love, adore, and cherish each other already, shouldn’t this somehow be enough? Here’s to you my love. If the question ever becomes available “I do…” with all my heart and soul you have been the courage and strength of my existence that I have been thankful for since that fateful night in May so many, many years ago. What the heart has once known it shall never forget!!!!
