Katherine of Aragon

Reading Alison Weir's The Six Wives of Henry VIII, just finishing the section on Henry's first wife, Katherine of Aragon.  She loved Henry so deeply, and I was touched by her final letter to him, particularly the last line, the very last words she would write on earth:

"Lastly, I make this vow: that mine eyes desire you above all things."

Really sad...upon reading this, Henry broke down and wept.
