Dear Mr. Silverstein,
Reviewed in the United States on February 8, 2018
My wife and I were joined in a nearly two year battle with a disease that wanted to take her from me. As the season of giving neared, she asked me to purchase a gift for me that would be from her. She was too weak to go out any longer. I was in a Book Sellers thinking I would purchase a gift card for her to give to me. I passed a display and saw a flash of red and green. They were my wife's favorite colors. I looked closer and saw the little boy, the apple, and the giving tree. Without even opening it I knew this would be from her to me. When we exchanged gifts she looked at it and smiled. Without a word, I held and put it in a quiet place to be read again at a special time.
On the early morning of January 31st, while I held and kissed her gently, she left the field of battle.
This morning I re-read her gift to me and actually, Mr. Silverstein, your gift to us.
My wife Vincenza (Vincy) of almost 45 years was my giving tree.
Now as a old man I sit where she rests. I dream and remember.
As always, Richard La Bella.
