Words touched this heart

Bob Marcotte, your Valley Voices piece, “The sad, silly, single man who orders the same dinner every Friday night” (March 14) reached my heart.

How beautiful it is to see someone with a love like yours for your dear wife. The way you described your cast iron heart-shaped vault that you carry with you — I love how you feel her with you at your Friday night dinner.

I lost my husband of 67 years in 2014. We loved each other, but I think not with the passion I hear in your words.

When I go out to dinner myself next time, I will think of you and will have a silent conversation with my loved one.
