Writing a True Love Memoir

When you are writing a Memoir about a true love shared with your soulmate, it can be the most beautiful experience but it can be heartbreaking at times. Frank and I married at age eighteen.  We were married for nearly twenty-nine years when suddenly he was struck ill and died within six days of that illness at the age of forty-seven. While writing our love story and remembering the fun times we had together, I enter into a time machine going back to that period.   Actually, I see us together as if a spectator.  Actually, the best way I can describe this would be to compare it to the same...

My Soulmate Love for Eternity

After marrying my soulmate Frank on May 8, 1968,  he passed from this world on January 30, 1997, due to a sudden illness. We had been married for nearly twenty-nine years at the time of his death.  Frank and I were eighteen years old when we married and only thirty hours separated the difference in our ages, so we actually grew up together. As our hearts and souls became so entwined together they became one strong thread. On our first date, Frank walked me to the front door of my parents home, told me that he loved me and that he was going to marry me.  I  looked at Frank knowing what he...

Stuck On You, Chapter 16

  The four days leading up to our Wedding Day were full of excitement. Wow!  I had Frank in my arms, and it seemed that God had used superglue on our hands, and we could not let go. Things were hectic in Van Vleck, Texas.  It seemed like everyone in this town were in some way involved in our wedding.  Since the wedding was planned for the evening of May 8, 1968, at the First Methodist Church in Van Vleck, Texas, there was so much to do. It was hard for Frank and me to concentrate on all of the  “pomp and circumstance”. All we wanted to do was be alone with each other. It...

Honeymoon & HemisFair 1968

  Waking up that first morning as Frank’s wife was surreal.  Wondering was it all a dream or reality, and then I heard Frank say, “Good Morning Mrs. L. F. Henderson, Jr.” and I knew it was real. Frank and I did what we needed to do to get dressed then repacked our suitcases so we could get a start on our first day as Husband and Wife. I should stop right here and say “thank you” with profound appreciation to my Mom and her good friend, Peggy Goodloe Fisher.  Evidently, they were feeling very naughty while I was in the shower on the day of my wedding. So...
