Sadly, I had never thought to send one to my husband, even in the early days of our relationship when I still lived in an illusion of happiness. And since moving to New York we had grown so far apart that there seemed no breaching the chasm. Edward was silent, as if suddenly suspended in a state of disbelief. He leaned over the table, poured us the remaining drops of the Vouvray, and then we both lingered over the last spoonfuls of our apricot soufflés. A few days later, when Edward’s recipe came in the mail—along with his admonition to be more romantic—I set out to make the soufflés on my own.
When he was feeling well, Edward created feasts of cassoulet or oysters Rockefeller, and sometimes we indulged in a good champagne or port, served in the delicate one-hundred-year-old glasses he inherited from his mother. He always warmed his dinner plates in the oven, even if he was serving only leftovers—although Edward rarely served leftovers. Everything unfolded with the same comforting ceremony: There was always a cocktail before the main course—tonight we’d had martinis—followed by dessert and perhaps Turkish coffee spiked with brandy or Ricard to finish.
Paula knew that Edward had already made the decision that he wanted to die rather than face life without her. That was wrong, she said, and exhorted him now to keep on living. When he finally agreed, she serenaded the man she had been married to for sixty-nine years. She began with “My Funny Valentine” and segued into half-remembered lyrics of Broadway show tunes and ballads that topped the charts in the 1940s and 1950s, when they were young and still believed that they could break into show business.
