Sorry ta hear it. Suppose he was a particular friend of your husbands. That makes it rough iffn ya get to thinkin bout it too long. Dang. I be married 3 times, the last today in 1974, lasted till 88, and I cant remember a single one ofg who was my bestus man.

It was a way of life and sometimes it made me crazy.
All that re-fixing, reheating, renewing, I wanted just once to be
Waste meant affluence.
Throwing things away meant you knew there'd always be more.

But then my Mother died, and on that clear summer's night,
In the warmth of the hospital room,
I was struck with the pain of learning that
sometimes there isn't any 'more.'
Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up
And goes away...never to return.
So...while we have's best we love it.....
And care for it .....and fix it when it's broken.....and heal it when it's

This is true.....for marriage.....and old cars.....
And children with bad report cards.....and dogs with bad hips.....
And aging parents.....and grandparents.
We keep them because they are worth it,
Because we are worth it. Some things we keep.
Like a best friend that moved away --
Or -- a classmate we grew up with.

There are just some things that make life important,
Like people we know who are special.....
And so, we keep them close!

*found this in my email...thought ya might enjoy it.....h

Please know, Peanut and I am very sorry to hear the sad news. We all cherish our friends…and know how difficult it is on the ones left behind. We will have you both in our warm thoughts.
