Hello. This blog is about reuniting with lost love. But it is also about reuniting in general–with family and friends, etc. Our story is fascinating and we want to share it with the world. I have written a book about it all and I will begin sharing it here on this blog.
The concept of reuniting is what started it all and why I decided to write a memoir about our very inspiring experience. We met initially in 1956 on the first day of 7th grade at Gorton High School in Yonkers, NY. We were friends throughout our high school years, but we became sweethearts in our senior year and we ‘went steady’. However, I broke off with Alan after we both went off to college–actually during the Christmas vacation of our freshman year. I just felt that I wanted to experience more, but I never dreamed of how much I had hurt Alan or how much it would change his life. He left school (couldn’t cope) and eventually joined the Navy. He began building submarines and found himself remaining in the Navy for almost 24 years. He married twice during those years (two rather bad marriages), became a father, and was never really happy. I, on the other hand, didn’t marry until I was 29 years old, had two children, but then divorced after 27 years of marriage. Fast forward then to 2009 when Alan had become widowed and I had been divorced for ten years. Alan’s daughter-in-law put him onto FaceBook and he found me! After much communication via email and phone, a new relationship blossomed quickly. We were engaged within three months and married almost a year after the first email. We are very happy and the story is a very interesting one.
I will tell lots more on this blog and look forward to my book being published.
