How sad. Sometimes it's hard to understand why God chooses to take those closest to us, and at such a young age. I suppose we'll never know until we reach Heaven.

Knowing that this is a personal account, and the reason why the letter was never sent makes this piece very moving.
You have taken my breath away.
Truly heartbreaking. Thank you for sharing.
You are a true romantic. It grieves my heart to hear that the woman who received this never knew the joy of becoming your wife. While time is a great healer, the memory of a 1st love, with its romantic dreams, lives within the heart forever. There is room in the heart for more than one love, but each will occupy its own space, its own promise of a love to be renewed in the vast outreaches of eternity.
Beautiful. Cherish the moments you did have with her, and that and God's strength will lead you on.
Wow, I have chills. Romance, tragedy, so well written.
Your heart shines through your writing, a heart filled with sadness through a tragic loss, a heart filled with love for Him. Thank you for sharing your heart!
What a special letter to share. Thank you. You are a romantic among men... The longer-than-expected walk along the beach, hand in hand. The likening of your relationship to the one you cherish with our God. These are beautiful word pictures, and they will store well in your heart's treasure chest. You'll never know your beloved any other way than how you've drawn the two of you here, and that is God's gift to you. May he bless you with another love in due time...
How tender! You're quite a jewel.

This truly touched my heart - especially knowing it is true. Excellent.
I truly don't know what to say. This is wonderful....
Oh, that was wonderful! It made me cry! Well done indeed!!
Wonderful letter. Sad that it was never sent. The writing is good. So explanatory.
How tender and beautiful... Thanks for sharing your heart with us. And your descriptions of the oneness you shared with God being the same kind of oneness you hoped and dreamed to share with your future wife are awesome; that's what I desire for my children to find in their spouses... Excellent job. Cheri
First, I am truly sorry for your loss. Your message, which is beautifully told, is a lesson to all of us that we all to often do not have tomorrow and should never put off saying those things that are in our hearts.
