Lyn, I don't know how to start this mail but somehow I know I should respond to your curiosity. I read your previous mail before the last one a couple of times and believe me it's not the best mail to read at this sad period. Well I understand you ask questions for clarifications. Just so you know Mama was under a health insurance scheme down here called the NHS through the East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, when I say that I came down to Lancashire, I don't mean the city...I mean the hospital, everyone in this neighborhood refer to it as just Lancashire instead of the full hospital name. I was never in Lancashire, that's about 3 hours from Edinburgh and it's in England not Scotland nor Northern Ireland. So, there's no way I would have been there.

Secondly, I called you from Dublin not Ballycastle. Your phone is probably interpreting my location through the area code of my number which comes from Ballycastle because a Dublin number would have taken a longer time to register than Ballycastle....and I was so eager to talk to you when I came down here. I had to register the available number which happened to be from there. It's good you ask these questions; I believe answering them will help our relationship. My Dad is from Germany but he established himself as a barrister in the UK where she met Mama; then as a clerk in the chambers he worked. You can find Mama's funeral announcement on the chandlers website www.darrenchandlers.com I don't know how much more you care to know, so I'm attaching my drivers license to this mail, maybe it can be of help.

My sincere thought is that you should have asked me questions when you had doubts rather than keeping them in your mind and pouring them out when I'm depressed. However, I must confess that everything is going fine over here as planned. We are hoping to do the funeral on Wednesday. I've achieved a couple of things, so hopefully by the end of Tuesday we should have concluded the arrangement for the funeral on Wednesday. Today I went to meet with the priest to conclude the arrangement on how the first and second reading will go and by whom. The nurse from the hospital said that my Mama said that she should be buried this way and I am happy that all the arrangements are almost in place. You can send in your testimonial and I'll forward it to the appropriate person…

Lyn, I must thank you for all your comforting words this period. I sincerely appreciate all your encouragement. With you, I have come to know that I have one million people at my back. You are such a darling. Before you came into my life, I had heard of passion and love and seen it in movies; never dreamed that kind of emotion would ever come to me again after I lost my wife but here you are giving me so much support and you tell me you're not God sent? Baby, you're just the most precious gift from heaven.

I informed my company about my predicament and they've not even bothered to send me a mail, my director is busy calling to tell me how they need me in Dublin because of a particular investor that's interested in me. So you see? When I get your encouraging words; they mean the world to me. I must confess that in some ways I feel inadequate. Honey, my mind is questioned; can I match your gentleness? Can I give you feelings as warm and secure as the ones you have bestowed on me? You have chosen to show me such strong passion combined with secure sweet affection, that I can only hope with time you feel a glimpse of the same emotions from me.

I now know I am in a place I have never been before. I am in a place that is calm and serene, but exciting and exhilarating, all at the same time. This place is neither a state of mind, nor just one of physical being. It is a place where my soul soars. It is a place I share with you. It is in you and you are the place. Thank you for allowing me entrance into the place. I am in a place where my mornings begin with you in my thoughts and my day ends with you in my mind. I am in a place where, when good things happen, my first reaction is that “I am excited”, because I will get to share them with you. I am in a place where, when bad things happen, I know that you will be there to provide comfort and make the world right again with your simple, honest spiritual presence and your encouraging, supportive, caring messages.

This is the place that I hold in my heart, for you are precious beyond words. I am a better man because you are mine. I am afraid that when I come to meet you, you will hold me in your arms and I will never want to leave, and I pray that I will never have to leave. Just know that when you hold me in your arms, I will feel safe in the safest, most treasured place in the world. This is why I will not want to leave again. Why will I go? to where? to my company? Like Mama Austin will call them, the people that want to kill his son with work, Mama will say!

Darling, I see you as someone I can trust, confide in, play with and enjoy life with. You make me so happy. I can't begin to describe how you really make me feel so I will offer just this: I love you so much Lyn. Warm Hugs and Kisses to You Baby..
