They had celebrated their silver jubilee anniversary recently, and were an example of a perfect couple still in love.

Her recent death had left him shattered. While clearing her closet, he found a bundle of love letters.

Did he really know her, after all those years together?

    1. Thanks so much Yasmin for those kind words of encouragement. I am truly humbled πŸ™.
      Generally I like to leave the story at a point where endless possibilities can take it forward…… πŸ˜€


  2. Grandma’s love letters. You won’t find a treasure trove of emails, lovingly tied with an old piece of string, or a cache of text messages kept for eternity in a battered file, nor WhatsApp exchanges carefully folded in a scented drawer. I know now, grandma, the pen is always mightier than the web.
