    Remembering You was a very epic and lovely story of two people destined to be together, about fate, about finding your soul mate, about the definition of true love and about finding love then losing love,but finding love again. Sandi Lynn wrote an incredible love story, she just proved to us yet again why she's one of my favorite authors.4/5.   To us, remembering our ancestors is an important thing. After all, we would not be here without them. So our new little column starts out with a rather famous Denny who is not a direct ancestor of us, but a cousin: Major Ebenezer Denny. Ebenezer Denny (–).
