Three years ago, a great love story began to unfold. A story about two very different people, brought together by fate, who had no idea how much they truly needed each other. In the beginning, Kate Beckett and Richard Castle saw something in one another, something that they had been searching for their entire lives, and, although they could not admit it at first, something that would bond them together. Always.
There is a universal truth we all have to face, whether we want to or not: everything eventually ends. I must as I looked forward to this day, I’ve always disliked endings. Last day of summer, the final chapter of a great book, parting ways with a close friend. But endings are inevitable. Leaves fall, we close the book, you say good-bye. Today is one those days for us. Today we say good-bye to everything that was familiar, everything that was comfortable. We’re moving on. But just because we’re leaving and that hurts, there are some people who are so much a part of us, they’ll be with us no matter what. They are our solid ground, our North Star, and the small clear voices in our hearts that will be with us. Always.
