Twenty years ago today my first redhead was taken from this world by cervical cancer.*
I didn't deserve her for the short time I had her, and like a fool I walked away from her. This was long before her death, more than 10 years in fact. We were still in high school when I decided I didn't want to be "tied down" and I have since had plenty of time to regret that decision.
Today I remember her. Perhaps I will get the chance in the next life to admit to her what I never could in this one.
RIP Leonaye A. Bulger, 10 May 1966 - 31 May 1994
*I hate this disease. Damn I'm hard on my redheads, if the good Lord ever grants me another I will endeavor to take better care of her.
