Ruis, my beloved. Part 3

2009 to 2014.

We started the year in style, doing what we did best: having fun!
Valentine was spent in Sicily, traveling with friends. And having fun!
Followed by fun in the Netherlands!
Our first anniversary we celebrated in Bora Bora...
...with the usual outcome of having lots of uninvited visitors, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
(See the trip here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.)
Our next trip brought us to Rome, to celebrate Opus birthday.
And then came Paris where we celebrated Sassy's retirement with a five day event!
(See it here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.)
2010 we started with a trip to Seuss Landing in Orlando, Florida!
(See it here: 1, 2, 3.)
Then we had another Valentine adventure: Niagra Falls!
(See it here: 1, 2, 3.)
From 2011 to 2014 things quieted down a bit. Not our fault, the help wasn't much help anymore, the gang had lost so many dear members, life had changed a bit.
We still had parties, even if it was just 'tea parties',
We still danced,
(this time at Ruis' staff wedding!)
and we still traveled.
But by far not as much as we used to.
Ruis and my last adventure was playing in the World Cup in the Summer of 2014.

Now I am all out of words, full of memories, but missing my dear Ruis, the love of my life so much.
We had a glorious ride, dear Ruis, and we will forever be 'Karl and Ruis'.
I love you.
"... And now there is always one.
And now there is no loneliness.

Now, forever, forever you are as one.
There are two bodies.

But now there is only one heart in both
And you are as one person."

We have wonderful memories of those times. We will miss Ruis. And we will miss you as you stop blogging permanently.
