by Dawgelene “Dr Dawj” Sangster- While the world celebrates what is known as Valentine’s day with all of the cards, candy, expensive dinners and items; I remember a man, my late husband James Sangster, that showed love EVERYDAY by being present in my life. James wasn’t this extreme romantic who made a big deal out of secular holidays, but he showed love by being mentally, spiritually and emotionally present in my life. While that may not be a big deal to some, for a woman like me that takes pride in my faith, mental stability and emotional connections, having someone to give that on a daily basis is extremely important to me.
James was that guy that paid attention to details I didn’t even know he was paying attention to like changing my hairstyle ever 3 weeks; feelings of frustration without me saying a word or knowing when I needed a hug. I shared things with him I did not want share with others because I knew he had my best interest at heart and would oftentimes save me from myself! On this day that the world celebrates, I choose to salute a great guy that lived a life of faith, strength and courage until the very end, and was a great husband.
