Launch of Love Letters to and from Sarah: A memorial tribute from her soul mate.
This is a true love story about the author and his soul-mate.Harris D Gulko has written under the pen name David G. Sirrah. His friendship with Sarah goes back to 1960. They remained friends over the many years but there had never been any romantic involvement. But when he returned from an overseas assignment they were both alone. Then what started as casual chatting between two long-time friends, developed into a most marvelous coupleness. David and Sarah spent hours on the phone -just like teenagers!
He and Sarah were soul mates for only 3 ½ years. Of that period he writes: “That’s 42 months – 1,277.5 days – 30,660 hours. Each day, each hour was for me the most precious of gifts, and I choose to believe Sarah felt the same.” After she died he became aware that she had kept virtually all the emails, letters, poems, etc. he had sent her, during their courtship and whilst they were together. As a tribute to her memory he reproduced some of that correspondence and included some of his original oil paintings.
The net proceeds from the sale of this book will accrue to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
