I can't believe it.  They warned me when I met her, that she was too young for me....that....if I married her .....death would be knocking at my door much sooner.  But I didn't care, because she was so vibrant and ......she made all my friends - the ones still alive - green with envy.........What did it matter..... why would I want to live another twenty years of life if it was without her? What would twenty years without her be like?  Better than five with her?  Four with her?

(Sighs)  One with her.

How do you choose?  How do you know?

             (He turns to leave, stops, looks back, wipes his eyes)

How would I know....that when death knocked at my would be for her......

             (He exits.......)
