SUCH LITTLE TIME
My dad’s last words were to tell Mom, “I love you.” His last conscious action was to raise his head, to meet her descending lips as she leaned in over the hospital bed, for one last kiss. After Dad died I found out about the letters.
In 1963, Peggy was on vacation in Ontario, Canada. She met Art, they fell in love and four days later got engaged. But Peggy had to return to Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland. For eight-months their only communication as through letters; letters which are filled with the optimism of new romance and the longing of being separated from the one you love.
After forty years by each other’s side the first thing Peggy said after Art took his last breath was, “I just didn’t think we’d have such little time together.” While only a few of Art’s letters made it to Canada Art saved all of Peggy’s. This is their collection.
“I have just finished reading Peggy Frizzell’s book, Such Little Time. What a delightful collection of letters! I knew that Peggy was a lovely woman, but the letters fully reveal her open, honest and loving spirit. The day-to-day details of living in 1963-64 will remind those of us of the older generations of poignant memories of life in Ireland and the County. Everyone will be moved to remember what true love is. I highly recommend this book. Congratulations, Peggy and Colin!” — Mary Grimley, Songwriter
