Married for 59 years

I was so touched by this that I felt the need to share…

I spoke to a woman today who recently lost her husband to lymphoma. They were married for 59 years.  She, her family and her community loved her husband so much.  He played guitar in a gospel band.  He donated his time and music to various causes.  He was diagnosed 4 years ago.  He fought bravely until his disease transformed, and he passed this month.  This is what she said to me about her loved one…

“We met in high school. Even though I was just a child, I knew what his soul was at that young age.  He was the best man I ever knew.  It was a short 59 years together”.

There were no tears, only love and cherished memories.
