Dear Tim:

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the article “Guardians of the Timeless” in the March-April 2019 issue of Lighthouse Digest. It was very well-written, eloquent, and touching. I could really relate to the article, as I lost my wife far too soon in 2007, when she was only 37 years old. We loved the ocean and visiting lighthouses together. I proposed atop the Cape May lighthouse in 1999. After her death, I spent lots of time revisiting many of the places we had gone together, hoping to find some essence of her or some sign that she was OK, wherever she was. It was a long journey, but I think it helped in my healing. There were times when I think I was able to connect with her spirit, although those types of things are never as obvious as we would like them to be. One needs to look hard and be very open minded. I hope that Jacquelyn was able to sense Bob in her return visits to Big Sable, and that she finds peace.

PS: I picked up my first copy of Lighthouse Digest at the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood, NJ during the trip where I proposed. I have been a subscriber ever since, and 20 years ago, I was probably one of your youngest subscribers. I enjoy reading your magazine. It provides me a connection to the coast when I can’t be there. Keep up the good work.
