Andre Rieu - And The Waltz Goes On 2011
You were indeed a Godsend!
It is never easy to put your feelings on paper because most of the time people do not really feel from their heart what they write.
But, Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is my Witness that you have been my sun and I never went to sleep or wake up without you in my mind.
I thank Allah for allowing me to bring happiness into your life too and from the bottom of my heart I wish you a very Happy Birthday and a very Happy New Year 2015.
Thank you for being you and just you and not a pretend woman and wife.
I will never tire reminding you how much you mean to me and to our grand daughters.
In spirit I am with you, Wendy, Baby and Sean.
I love you!
This is what many call Destiny.
Happy Birthday my Love!
I cannot really imagine how my life would have been without you!
My heartfelt feelings would suffice to tell you that I pray to Allah that I can celebrate your Birthday many many more times again.
Back in University in the sixties (former U.S.S.R.) I quoted to my Hungarian 'flirt'
Gaius Valerius Catullus
|Line||Latin Text||English Translation|
|1||Vivamus, mea Lesbia, atque amemus,||Let us live, my Lesbia, and let us love,|
|2||rumoresque senum severiorum||and let's value all the rumors|
|3||omnes unius aestimemus assis!||of rather stern old men as one penny!|
|4||soles occidere et redire possunt;||Suns can set and return;|
|5||nobis, cum semel occidit brevis lux,||as for us, once our brief light sets,|
|6||nox est perpetua una dormienda.||there is one perpetual night to be slept.|
|7||da mi basia mille, deinde centum,||Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred,|
|8||dein mille altera, dein secunda centum,||then a thousand others, then a second hundred,|
|9||deinde usque altera mille, deinde centum;||then up to a thousand others, then a hundred.|
|10||dein, cum milia multa fecerimus,||Then, when we have made many thousands,|
|11||conturbabimus illa ne sciamus,||we will mix them up, lest we should know,|
|12||aut ne quis malus invidere possit||--or lest any evil person should be able to envy us|
|13||cum tantum sciat esse basiorum.||when he knows--how many kisses there are.|
Thanks to you I have been living my youth days again and I do not care what the inhuman world has to say.
So, Darling, a thousand more kisses for your birthday!
I wish you a lovely day and show to all how happy you are! This is a promise fulfilled, alhamdulillah.

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — After spending 67 years together as devoted husband and wife, there was no question how Floyd and Violet Hartwig would end their lives — together.
Sensing the couple was close to death, their children pushed their two hospice beds together and gently placed their father's hand in the mother's palm.
Floyd, 90, died first. Violet, 89, followed five hours later. They died Feb. 11 at home, just as they had wished, the family said.
"They wanted to go together," their daughter, Donna Scharton, said Thursday. "It was meant to be that way."
The two knew each other as children, growing up in the Central California farming community of Easton. Romance sparked at a local dance hall one night when Floyd, a decorated Navy sailor, was home on shore leave. They were married on Aug. 16, 1947, and while away Floyd showered Violet with affection through love letters the family cherishes.
Returning home for good, the two raised three children on their small farm, growing cotton and raising turkeys. Violet helped on the ranch and kept the house. She prepared breakfast early each morning for her husband, seeing him off to work as a ranch foreman and delivering eggs.
"They were dedicated to each other," Scharton said. "Even other people who met them said they had that connection."
The couple, who had four grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, remained active until recently. Around the holidays, the family noticed that Violet's dementia had worsened, and in late January a doctor said Floyd's failing kidneys gave him two weeks to live.
The family moved the couches from the living room of their ranch house, making space for the hospice beds. Cynthia Letson said that after her grandfather passed, they told her grandmother that she could go, too. They told Violet that Floyd was waiting for her.
Letson said her grandparents are a positive example at a time with too many broken marriages.
"It would be nice if the world got back to the core of marriage," Letson said. "I don't think people realize that anymore. They need to go back to the basics that marriage is forever."
