Dark clouds raced across the sky. A light mist came down. The world was still.
Drew Lawrence placed three red roses at the base of the gray stone marker. One for each happy, glorious year of their marriage. His gaze traveled over two words:
His voice quiet, he said, "My darling Kay, you left me three years ago. Since that time, I've loved your family and my work, but it's not enough. What am I to do?"
He closed his eyes and bowed his head. He felt her gentle warmth surround him.
"My Beloved, you must live your life to the fullest. Find another and be happy."
His head snapped up, eyes wide.
He looked around, but she wasn't there. His instant joy disappeared. But he had his answer. Then the mist faded away and the sun lit his world. He turned and walked down the hill with a lighter step.

Love knows no age limits Kay Holland, a fifty year-old widow, doesn't want to be called a cougar. Although fifteen years separate them, thirty-five year old, Drew Lawrence, isn't her cub!

The sun came through the green leaves of an oak tree. A gentle, warm breeze rustled the high grass on the shore of the swirling brook. A little black-haired boy leaned over the bank to drop a plastic boat into the stream. He slipped in the mud. Before he fell into the rushing water, a young woman grabbed his arm and pulled him back to safety.
"You have to be more careful," she said.
He turned to her. His dark brown eyes gazed into hers. He smiled. A deep dimple appeared in his left cheek. The smile's brilliance made her grin back. How she wanted to hug him.
"Thank you," he said, laughed and ran away.
Later the young woman asked her cousin who had come with her to the family reunion, "Who is he?"
"I don't know. I think his name is Darin, Drew or something like that. Why?"
"I wish I could take him home."
"You always were a sucker for dark eyes and a dimpled smile." She laughed, "Besides, I doubt your new husband would want the competition."
