Although Anatoly and I were divorced for 20 years, we married very young and stayed together for close to 20 years. Those years were filled with struggle, frustration, disappointment, betrayal, and yet also filled with joy, love, companionship, travel, and the celebration of having our son together. Anatoly filled a room with his presence, his charm, his humor & his ability to sell you anything under the stars--he was in sales all of his life. He was an artist and music lover who put his gifts aside to work hard and one day retire. He never realized that dream but the lesson I am inspired by is to enjoy the gift of life every day and never take our health and well-being for granted. My son and I miss him greatly and he lives within our hearts forever. Tony, I love you.
