“My worst time is if I foolishly drink a coffee later in the day and I can’t fall asleep,” he said. “I’ve got to keep busy.”
When he’s in town, he visits Louise often and feeds her twice a day.
“This woman has got so much to offer,” he said as he looked at Louise. “I wonder if Louise has gone to heaven already. I know she’s not here. It’s kind of like a hard drive that’s not working.”
Once in a while, Don says there will be some awareness on Louise’s part, but it’s been happening less and less as time goes by.
“I wish I could ask the doctors one thing,” he said. “Where is she? Where is Louise? She’s not there.”
He turned, then, to look at his sweetheart.
“You know where you are, Louise?” he asked her. “You’re in my heart.”
“I know that,” Louise whispered as she smiled up at him.
