She's the cute one, obviously. I feel like I should be using a picture after her hair grew back, but this was always one of her favorites regardless.

All of my disdain for the state laws that made a marriage financially impossible is in the past. All the conflict -- that was so recently so corrosive -- with her family is moot.

Jennifer passed away early this morning, two days after her 36th birthday, and two days before we would have celebrated 18 months as a couple. They were the best 18 months in each of our lives.  Forever onward, my life will be richer for our love and her memory.

EDIT: Thank you to everyone for your kind words and warm wishes. I'm glad her picture got to spend some time at the top of the rec list.
