kayc Posted October 13, 2005 Report Share Posted October 13, 2005 This morning as my son was packing to go on his elk hunting trip, he found a pair of new insulated Army pants, lined with wool with cinch-ankles, exactly his size, with the tags still on them. They were rolled up in a plastic bag in his room; he asked me where they came from and all of a sudden I remembered George buying them a few months ago "because he thought Paul would like them"...not for a birthday present or a Christmas present, but "just because". We both lost it and I cried all the way to work and even after I got there. My son is so amazed at this wonderful man that was his stepdad, how good he was at knowing just what a person would like...when he died, I found a note in his wallet of ideas to buy people. He was just so sweet and thoughtful! He left such huge shoes to fill...there just is no one like him. How do you move on when such a gap as this is left? This week is tough, our anniversary is Oct. 19, Wed., and I am so scared of how I am going to do it...my birthday was hard enough. I hope that man knows how much we love him, and always will.
