  • Both the picture and the audio. I wonder where Angelique is now, and what her life is like.

    This is the picture that haunts me. My Tony was happiest in this place than anywhere in his life. He had two years there before cancer took him, but what years of joy they were, for both of us. I look at this photo and feel such angst, such a mixture of happiness for that moment and pain for what we both knew was surely coming. I can't see his face in this picture, but I know that man with every fiber of my being.
