What a beautiful love story. I have been under treatment for Multiple Myeloma for the past 11 years, so I can relate to this. Fortunately, I have wonderful Grandchildren and Great Grands, and the joy they provide keeps me persevering. I am so sorry for Yalom's loss, and I am sure that lovely Marilyn is in a better place.
