"It is said that no thing wears as well as old love. I do believe that old love wears best and is a blessing to behold in all its enduring splendour. When man and wife can travel through life and approach their death still holding hands and still holding on to those values that they set out with all those years ago, they have achieved all that is attainable through mutual affection and faithful attendance to each other's needs.
Such a journey can only be made in love and sustained through thick and thin by the expressed love of each other, a constancy of purpose, a thirst for living a good life, trust of their partner's judgement in all things and faith in their capacity to deal truthfully and sensitively with all their partner's needs and desires. Last, but by no means least, having a care never to step on their partner's dreams" William Forde: December 27th, 2014.
