Poignant inscription discovered at a bookstore

I didn't buy the book, but I had to snap a photograph with my iPhone.1 I spotted this 1981 inscription inside The Art Treasures from Moscow Museums, which was on the shelves of Bookmans Entertainment Exchange in Mesa, Arizona. 

Carol and Richard had something special 40 years ago, for a moment in time.

1. The only book I did buy was a very nice 1969 first edition of Clifford Irving's Fake! The Story of Elmyr de Hory, the Greatest Art Forger of Our Time, complete with dust jacket, for just $4. As a big fan of Orson Welles' F for Fake, I was quite pleased with this find.
