2002 Letter to Marion

As Pat grew older, his hearing started to deteriorate. Often loathe to wear a hearing aid, this enabled him to “tune out” whenever conversations bored him! However, it also enabled him to reflect on his life and to appreciate how blessed he was in so many ways. At church one day and without his hearing aid so that he couldn’t hear the sermon, he thought about how blessed he was in having Marion as his wife, and he composed a letter to her to express his love for her.
