Today is a difficult day for me. It's been 9 years ago today that my Jerry passed away. Still hard today as it was then. Thank God for my family and good friends.

February 12th
 
February 12th.is Abraham Lincoln's actual birth date. However, in modern times, we celebrate Lincoln, and all of the U.S. Presidents, on President's Day.
 
Every American knows President Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States. "Honest Abe", as he was commonly known, was born in the wilderness country of Hardin County, Kentucky on February 12, 1809.
 
Abraham Lincoln became president in 1861. Although he hated war, he was drawn into it as he believed it was the only was to save the nation, after the southern states declared their secession from the Union.
 
In addition to serving as president during the civil war and saving the Union,  Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation that ended slavery in the U.S. forever.He also wrote and gave The Gettysburg Address, memorializing the bloodiest and most important battle of the Civil War. Gettysburg proved to be the turning point of the war.
 
Shortly after the war ended, Abraham Lincoln became the first U.S. President to be assassinated. He was shot and mortally wounded on Good Friday, April 14, 1865 by John Wilkes Booth in Ford's Theatre.

Hugs.

Thanks for sharing Jerry.

How fortunate for both of you to have known such great love in this lifetime.

What a shame, that all great love stories end the same on earth. In death. How sweet it would be if like in a Nicholas Sparks novel, you could just die quietly in each others arms while sleeping. Enter the Kingdom of Heaven together.
