My Life With Gee
It is hard to believe that a woman I met a little over five years ago, and that I knew for only 23 months and one day, could have changed my life in so many ways. If you asked me whether it was worth it... if I would do it all again... knowing that I would lose her after such a short time together... or to make the choice to never have known her... I would not change a thing I did.
The person I am today could have never existed had I not met Gee. She inspires me to be a better person than I could have ever been without having met her. The best description of her is still the one that I got in the first e-mail I ever received from Woo, Gee’s best friend. Woo wrote, "Yet we get to know her, love her and be loved by her... how privileged are we." I find that in some ways, much of the anger I've felt over her death was not because of the unfairness of it all, but because of how unfair it is for all those people who never got a chance to know my beloved Gee. As I write this, more time has passed than I had with her, but I can hardly remember my life without Gee.
I am hoping, that through these pages and my writings, that you may get to know Gee, at least a little bit. The journey that Gee and I walked together was not an easy one...and though not the easiest journey, Gee and I had a truly joyous and fulfilling life together. We knew more joy and happiness and more true love than most people will ever see.
I have no regrets about my time with Gee... Just a simple wish... that we had just a little more time together. I truly do hope that all of you who visit us here, can see a glimpse of the happiness that I found with Gee, and wish that you find such happiness and love for yourselves.
