Ian, it is so nice that you have kept these letters that you sent to each other all those years ago. Brian and I had no need to send letters to each other but we always wrote a loving message to each other on cards and I fortunately have all these and those silly, loving messages. Brian would write a poem which could either be very soppy or amusing. I sit on the floor and read them. I also found some text on my phone that he sent just before he died. They are so precious as I never text and didn’t know they was there until he passed.
Take care

I have letters written in the very early days of just meeting and then special ones when my husband moved to England to work and had to wait 6 months before I could join him with our first born, such a hard time for him making do with weekends, and when we were reunited as a family again, it was truly perfect :blue_heart:

I’ve still got all Clive’s texts, although they’re on old phones so I have to make a special effort to charge them up when I want to read them. And, yes, the silly little messages and in jokes on cards that make me cry when I read them now, but I’m hoping that they’ll makes me smile one day.

thank you Pat.
it was only the first week,we didn’t need send letters again ,as I could use the house phone to ring Jayne every night and check she was ok.
in the hotel were Jayne was staying .was from Monday till Thursday.
think I told you I got all the phones Jaynes ever had and taken every single message and copied them to one drive I occasionally read them but loads bring tears to my eyes especially the last few from the hospital.
warm regards

you should copy them and store them on your laptop in cloud or one drive.
thats what ive done with all of Jaynes.

HI ,
I sent his old texts to my phone again so I could read them when I wanted to. If his phone is still in use could you do this? They are comforting. Sadme

if you have old texts and the lead that charges said mobile,just connect the USB to you laptop
as well as connecting to you mobile and then you can save them on your laptop.

Thanks for that Ian. I found text from Brian just after he died, telling me how much he loved me and thanking me for looking after him. He must have done them in his last weeks. I don’t text and never knew they was there, so now they are precious to me.

This is good advice. I wash’t with my husband when he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in hospital. Fortunately I have his last texts to me and my replies. Last Friday I had a problem with my phone and thought I had lost them. Panic! I went to Carphone warehouse and a very kind young man sorted it for me and even brought me tissues because I was crying so much. So I will make sure I save these precious messages for the future.
