Those that drink the water that I will give them will never be thirsty again.


Patricia and I were friends, classmates, a couple, lovers, husband and wife, companions but there is more deep within. A mystic union. a spiritual presence, a quiet love and yes what she described as hermits together. Most important we seemed to have found a place with God – what C.S. Lewis calls God and us. Think of the soul as an immortal entity within us that goes on living after death and remains joined by God in marriage forever. The emphasis placed on life, not death. Ecclesiastes 12:7: “the dust returns to the earth, where it once was, and the soul returns to God who gave it.” God is Love and all the joys of heaven flow from the joys of marriage love like sweet water from a running spring.

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
