One "Flame" Has Gone Out.

My Brother-In-Arms of 43 years lost the love of his life this morning.
I was Best Man at their wedding.
I wish I had a magic wand.

So sorry to hear.

More tears.

He's lucky to have you as a friend.

Deep sighs and unabated yearning for months to come. I feel for him. It's never easy. Never. My sympathies...

Our condolences to you, SJ, and BB. Be the rock he needs right now, amigo.

You tell Ole Prairie Dog to take care. He and his wife are in our thoughts and prayers.

This is what happens when we are LUCKY enough to grow older.

Every day I see a sunrise, it is a blessing.

Just from reading some of OPD's words, I know they must have had an amazing 43 years. Time that only a few get to experience.
My blessings to him.

Greybeard said...

Thank you all.
I got a call two days ago from O.P.D., and through tears he related how glad he was that his bride was no longer in agony.
Now he'll need to adjust to not having the more-than-full-time job of caring for her.

Be at peace my brother...
You know I love you.
Ya done really good.

My Thanks to all of you for the warm thoughts and prayers and support these last 5 months. It is so gratifying to have great friends, brothers and sisters who you have never met, but I know would be such very good friends.
