Most couples don’t realize when they’re young, what growing old together really means, because aging is not for sissies.
I know of a couple who have been married for over sixty years. They show everyone the true meaning of growing old together, being the strength for one another in every moment of every day. Their love for one another never ceases.
A good man, who loves his wife like no other man I’ve ever seen love his spouse, left this earth yesterday, October 5, 2015. Years ago, when she had to leave on a trip for a few days, tears came to his eyes when he told me how much he loved and missed her. Just those few days away, and I could feel his longing and love for her.
My heart breaks to see the patriarch of this earthly family move on to be with heavenly family. We will miss him dearly. I thank him for raising my husband by being an outstanding example of a good man.
Semper Fi, Chief. Take your vitamins over there, and don’t worry, I’ll be good.
