Day Twelve: A Love Letter

Day 12: Craft a poem or love letter from one of your ancestors to his or her future spouse—or, if an ancestor was divorced, write a letter from one to the other explaining why he/she wants to leave.

Dear Nannie,

I cannot wait until that wonderful day when we are married. Happiness has evaded me for so long, and I did not think my heart would ever mend, after the losses I experienced early on. Death is a terrifying thing, my love, and my prayers are that you and I have a long and happy life together and that any children we have would most certainly outlive us. 

To think that you would take me a twice widowed fellow, who has not experienced love for any real length of time...that is extraordinary indeed. I will do my best to be the best husband I can be and I will love you always,

Your Elisha
