The Kind of Woman to Marry
November 13, 1998
Dear Josh and Eamon,
We didn't go to the islands or Paris on our honeymoon. We went to Cape May, NJ, where the proprietor of a B&B refused us shelter because we arrived at 3 a.m. after an all night drive.
That first night we slept on the beach by the nun's convent near the lighthouse. It was freezing and my new bride (your mother) and I clung to each other for warmth.
Since that night, many others have slammed doors in our faces. Always, we've clung to each other near the outgoing tide and laughed with each sunrise after the cold, harsh night.
So marry a woman like that...one like your mother...one who shelters you from the cold and dark...both human and nature.
