We had been married almost two years. He was buried in the same blue blazer in which he was married,and at that same church in Virginia.Lee had a beautiful Virginia voice and a red beard, and was a biophysicist who studied the process of human vision. I knew those thingsd about him when we married. I did not know that he was a binge drinker whose bouts would become increasingly violent.The death certificate states that he died on February 15th, but I have a private reason for believing that the actual moment of death was twenty minutes before midnight on the 14th.During the following months I wrote down some of the events of our marriage and of his death in an effort to make sense of them. The attempt was painful and unsuccessful and I put the pages away for thirty-five years. Now as my own death grows nearer I can see those days more clearly and I want to leave a record.If you ever loved someone too much, this book is for you.
