   "I know my husband was devoted to me. I know he was proud of me. It took a very long time for us to work everything out, but we did, and we were about to have a real life together.“

"I was in love with Jack, I will never feel that way again.”

  “I never had or wanted a life of my own. Everything centered around Jack. I can’t believe I’ll never see him again. Sometimes, I wake in the morning, eager to tell him something, and he’s not there…Nearly every religion teaches there’s an afterlife, and I cling to that hope…

  …Jack was something special, and I know he saw something special in me too…The three years we spent in the White House were really the happiest time for us, the closest, and now it’s all gone…”

“Even though people may be well known, they hold in their hearts the emotions of a simple person for the moments that are the most important of those we know on earth: birth, marriage and death.”

 “I have been through a lot and have suffered a great deal. But I have had lots of happy moments, as well. Every moment one lives is different from the other. The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot separate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so, either.”
