Looking back, we had some great years and some fantastic times. We are truly blessed to have each other and a pretty good life on top of that. No complaints from me. It dawned on me during dinner that we have now been together for twice as long as she has been alive (more, but who's counting). It was our 2nd or 3rd date when I took her out for her 19th birthday. It was a big night because 19 was the legal drinking age in Montana at that time. Dinner at the Mustard Seed and a hastily drummed up party compliments of a few buddies.
