A Tragic Love Story

They met online, via IRC in the late 90's. What they had is what we call a long distance chat/internet relationship: she was here in the Philippines, he was in Australia. This is the story of Laura and Clancy.
Ilang beses din silang naghiwalay. I heard that he even had other GFs after they split up a few times. I think she also had another BF. One story I heard about their love affair was that when they broke up once and he found another GF, he decided to come here to meet this new GF. The new GF went all the way to the airport to fetch him then she took him to his hotel. At the hotel, Laura arrived. Nagkagulo. How did Laura know he's coming and where he's staying? It's pretty obvious Clancy told Laura the details of his trip. So what happened next? Clancy had to choose, but new GF walked out on him. It's pretty obvious their relationship hasn't really ended and that he will choose his old GF.
Years later, a chatmate of mine, whom I haven't spoken to in a while told me the sad news. She wanted me to read the email of Laura. From her email I saw nagkatuluyan din pala sila after all these years of away-bati. They tied the knot September 2004, then they found out Clancy had liver cancer October. He passed away November. Tragic...
I don't know it this is true, if it is then I feel for Laura.

"Deep inside, I was not sorry he came into my life, I was sorry he had to leave... I realized that God never took him away from me. He never even gave him to me in the first place... The tears will still fall once in awhile. I know I will still think about him, but this time, not with anger or hatred, but with precious thoughts of the things we shared. And the pace and the love that I feel, these are the things that no one can ever measure."
