WaltC Posted August 28, 2008 Report Share Posted August 28, 2008 Why Her?A child is not supposed to die before her parents do - but she did.A wife is not supposed to die before her older husband - but she did.A basically good person should outlive her complaining spouse - but she didn't.After 40+ months I should be able to move forward and smile once in a while - but I can't.I should cherish the good memories of over 40 years of marriage - and I do!I should be thankful that her suffering is over - and I am glad for that mercy!I know there is no good answer to the question of Why Her and not Me.But - why couldn't we go together? We did most things together for much of our marriage.A former co-worker just celebrated his 77th birthday and was telling me that he will be happily married for 56 years next month. That's great for him and her - they deserve it. Perhaps I didn't deserve such a long marriage, but Jean did deserve a much longer life on this earth.So as long as I live on here, while she does not, I will continue to ask -Why Her?
