I lost my a very close friend 3 weeks ago. He had helped me install cabinets and was a friend for 30 plus years. Friday I lost my dad. He was 87 years old. Thursday he was riding along in my brothers combine and was driving tractor. I will miss them both.

I just found out another elderly friend passed away the same night my mother did. She went to the same church as we did and will be using the same funeral home and the same church my parents went to.

63 years together is an incredible blessing. My grandfather is 94 now and lost his wife of 68(?) years last year. I couldn't imagine trying to readjust my life without my wife now after being together for 10 years, much less 60+.

Best wishes.
