We’ve just returned from a memorial service for the husband of one of Big B’s co-workers. Big B has injured his back and been home from work the whole week but wanted to make it to the service to support his co-worker.
The service was military and those services are among the most painful I’ve ever attended. I didn’t know the deceased personally, but I know his wife. I kept thinking about her loss; her husband was her best friend. He retired from the military early to become a stay at home dad so she could continue on in her military career. They seem to have had a true partnership.
She has a great deal of love and support headed her way. I know it won’t fill the place left by her best friend, but I hope it can ease her pain.
Hug the ones you love close, folks.
