The love created on that day has quieted anger, eased pain, encouraged dreams, and inspired joy. It has been a constant – forgiving all, celebrating much, apologizing for little. It has had many homes, sustaining one for decades; it has triumphed over trials of mind and body, of will and wallet.

Forty years later, time treads softly around this love, letting itself in and tiptoeing over to kneel with respect before it. And three people in particular, its greatest recipients, still depend on it, seek to replicate it, and wander the world proclaiming it.
