“‘Til death do us part.”
This, or some variation on this, is said at every traditional wedding ceremony. It’s a heavy line on such a happy day, and we barely ever dwell on the heft of it.
Losing a loved one is never easy. All throughout life, we know that the inevitable is coming, yet when it actually comes, it still seems entirely unfathomable. There comes a sinking feeling in your stomach, and an unfillable emptiness burrows inside of you.
Saying those final goodbyes is one of the hardest things we’ll ever have to do.
When a couple has been married for decades, by each other’s side through the thickest of thick and the most papery-thin of thin, that final farewell brings on the deepest emotions. The love that has grown over the years spills out as an undefinable sadness.
When one man named Bobby said goodbye to his wife of 60 years, however, he gave his children hope for never-ending loyalty and love in their own lives.
Bobby arrived at the visitation period an hour ahead of time to spend every last moment with her that he could. He bent down, trembling, to kiss her lips for one final time.
