FAFE

passed away last night around 8:30.  She was a sweet gentle woman who had struggled for the past year without her sweetie.  She joined him in Heaven last night and I'm sure there was a great fireworks show going on there.  They were married almost 72 years and they were both very proud of that!

How lovely that you are able to see it through their eyes, F. That's the first thing that came to mind for me when my beloved husband died four months ago at the age of 101; a picture of him reuniting with his dearest and closest friend...his puppy, "Me, Too." It was/is so real for me...that love is eternal...(even when it has four feet.) Thinking of you...

Sorry FAFE, I'm just now catching up.  Very sorry for your loss and I am in awe of their 72 years.

My condolences, FAFE. I too am impressed by their wonderful 72 years together. Fireworks indeed!
