Does it really matter that damn much who gets to call themselves "President"? Why in the world should we suffer all the turmoil?
Yes it does matter but still a tear jerker of a story. Been married 26 years myself.
This couple is very lucky. If both my wife and I could die at the exact same time, that would be incredible. Then neither one of us would have to morn and be miserable for the rest of the life.
I had it for 12 years, but she is gone now.
Sad. The world would be a better place if she was here and I was the one who passed...
They say “Once in a lifetime...” and many don’t even get that, so I should just be happy about it I guess.
I grew up in Sioux Center, Ia and knew that couple and their children. They were strong, faithful Christians. My daughter was a nurse in that hospital and I can understand the compassion they had when they put those beds together.
Very sorry for your loss.
