" Nancy Lou Here, Welcoming You to My Book of Love, Thoughts and Blogs"

This lifelong journey has been filled with true love, moments of sadness, hours of laughter, and private moments of tears.

Love Letters from the Heart

The following posts are from my collection of letters from the love of my life, Frank Henderson, and pages from the wonderful life I have enjoyed thanks to God’s Blessings.

The first few chapters recount my meeting and falling in love with Frank and then our early marriage and the Vietnam War Years and arrival home.
