I am so thrilled! I have been waiting and waiting for this event for ages, it seems. Ashton and she make a very nice couple. He is kind, sensitive, intelligent and very much in love with Kat. He gave her a beautiful jade necklace that he bought in China ten years ago to save for the person he was to marry. They will look for a ring together. I have never seen my daughter so happy, calm and content with someone. I could not be happier. It seems like yesterday when he sat on our bed and asked Jud for his permission to marry Kat. Jud was quite sick, at that point, and Ashton was a little nervous. It was pretty sweet. He told us he wanted to be with her forever. We gave him our happiest blessing.
Our daughter is engaged. My heart sinks to my toes. I think back to the day Ashton asked your permission to marry our daughter. You were so ill and it seemed that you initially had a hard time processing what he was saying. You then smiled that sweet, sweet smile of yours and told him that you were just the person you had been wishing your daughter would find. You gave him your blessing, then fell back asleep. My chest aches when i remember.
Our daughter is engaged. I never thought I would go through this alone. It would be unkind to tell them that there is no "forever."
I wish you were here.
