The song I’m singing today was included on a cassette of love songs my late husband Bill sent me after he proposed. At the time, he was living in Fowler, Colorado, and I here in Sheridan, Wyoming. So, he recorded his favorite love songs he’d downloaded from the internet onto a cassette and mailed it to me. It arrived on Valentine’s Day, along with other goodies he included in the care package. You can read more about this in My Ideal Partner.
As the song suggests, I want to believe Bill and I had a guardian angel who put us together. Otherwise, if he hadn’t proposed to me or if I’d said no, his life after his strokes would have been different, to say the least. No doubt he would have spent the rest of his life in a nursing home and wouldn’t have had the quality or quantity of life he had with me. I’m not trying to be vain. I’m just saying when someone you love and who loves you takes care of you when you can’t do anything for yourself, it makes a world of difference. Although Bill is gone, I’ll still give him true love forever.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
