Mary1063 Posted October 16, 2013 Report Share Posted October 16, 2013 Today I got the courage to open the letter and the gift that Leo left with Butch and myself to give to Shannon in the event he passed away. I never got to give it to Shan as she was so ill and fighting for her life. I was waiting for a time when she would be home to give it to her. Sadly that never came to be as you all know. My brother was not one to express himself very well, but his words to his wife were absolutely the most amazingly loving expression of love, honor, and gratitude. He wanted her to go on and find love again. He loved her enough to want only happiness for her, yet he expressed how much he knew that she would always love him. And the gift he left for her is a necklace with an "infinity" sign on it. Symbolizing that their love will go on forever. Nighttime is the worst for grief I am finding out. It all floods over me at night. Tonight is pretty bad. I have my Little Man here so very close to me. Missing my brother and SIL. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
