Dear Governor Haslam:
This is my 75th letter to you.
The picture above is my wife Linda. I thought it was time you knew what she looked like.
Today was moving day. She moved to south Knoxville today about 25 miles from where I live. Without TenncCare expansion in all likelihood we will never live together a again. But I guess by now you know that.
You dont know what today felt like though. You dont know what it felt like leaving without her in the car. You dont have a clue.
Her seizures are getting worse again. Maybe the stress I dont know. She had one seizure in a church parking lot this week. I caught her before she busted her head on the road. I am not there to catch her now.
Keep her picture. Look at it from time to time. You would like her… I know you would.
I told her once I would love her forever and ever and 4 more days. It was the truest words I ever said. She is worth so much more than you have ever given.
Keep the picture. Perhaps one day you will take the time to meet the real thing.
