I got a call yesterday from a friend of a dear friend. She was letting me know that my friend's husband had passed away rather suddenly. Needless to say, I was shocked and saddened.
My friend's husband was a fun guy and a wonderful husband and father to their 4 children. His physical presence will be missed but his spirit will remain with us and continue to be a strong presence because he was that kind of person. If my friend is open to suggestions for his grave marker, my suggestion will be: "He Loved Well".
I will be leaving in the morning for St.Paul, MN to be with my friend and reminisce. I knew right away which pictures I wanted to contribute to the gallery at the wake and was very thankful to be able to find them in my big box of photos from years past.
