What true love is...

Reading the "Redemption" series by Karen Kingsbury. Just wanted to pen down what i thought was so true about how love should be in this time and age. This part is where Ashley helps Alzheimer's patients in a nursing home. She helps this old lady named Irvel, who lives in the past and keeps thinking of her husband Hank, even though he's dead. Because of her disease she doesnt know that everyday is the same repitition for her, going through the same motions always expecting Hank to come back from fishing with the boys. Here, Ashley's tries to help her and the other patients, by getting as much facts and observations from close friends and family. Facts about Irvel and Hank goes like these:
  • Irvel and Hank were like 2 hands on the same person. The bond between them was such that you simply knew they were connected.
  • Hank & Irvel's love was rare even in their day. They were a walking definition of how marriage is supposed to be.
  • Everyone envied that special something Irvel and Hank shared. When 1 breathed in, the other drew life.
  • Most everyone i knew grieved for Irvel the day Hank dies. When his heart quit, most of us were surprise hers kept beating. They were that close.
