73 Years

My Mother’s older sister, Cecilia, died Tuesday. She was 94. At 94 death is never unexpected.

She married her husband in 1935, and after 73 years of marriage he is alone now and greatly grieves for her

Patience, trust, devotion, honor, support, smiles, perseverance, consistency…………………………………

Love…… why are these less expected than death?

love.Love, love, love.Love, love, love.
There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It's easy.
Nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It's easy.
All you need is love
.All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.
All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.
Nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy.
All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.Love is all you need.
All you need is love
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need

Jimmy, I'm sorry for the loss of your aunt. My condolences to your uncle. But remember, at the end of this song, Paul McCartney sings "She loves you.. yeah yeah yeah." I'm sure your Aunt Cecilia would have agreed. My best to you and your family.

The dang thing about getting old is that people you've loved and admired all your life start dying on you. My deepest sorrow at your loss. I'll be praying and thinking of you Jim.

My granddaddy died several months after granny died and it was from a broken heart. I don't know what we could have done to prevent this situation from happening.

Peace

Wow..I am sad for your uncle jim. :( His whole adult life is wrapped up within their relationship.

I hope Uncle Jim gets lots of love and support.

I had forgotten how much I love that song until just now. It is not so much the song performed as it is the word written--the poem.

I got a little misty reading through that. Thoughts and prayers with you, man.
