Awwww! He sounds terrific! I'd marry him in a minute. I wonder if he married? Was she younger than him? Richer? Vain and self obsorbed? Or good natured and quiet. What where her hobbies? Or...plot twist: He's really a horrid man with bad manners and the whole thing was a lie. That's not even him in the picture! He might have been a murder or cannibal! Now I must know! Someone, please write a book about this, or at least let me know how it all turned out.
