“Missing you comes in waves and tonight I’m drowning.”
— Chris Young

Lillian and George's BondSusie was blessed to have two wonderful parents — Lillian and George, who met when they were still children. They went to the same high school and the same college, married and raised four children. But even a marriage made in Heaven can have ups and downs.

Susie often recalls, “When mom and dad would have a tiff, he would always say, ‘When I’m gone, you won’t be able to live without me!’”

Without missing a beat, Lillian would respond, “I will so.”

Unfortunately, the day finally came when George passed away after a long illness, and Lillian discovered that he was right because when you lose someone after decades of marriage, trials and hardships, love and friendship, your life will never be the same again. It may be different, but it will never be the same.

Susie cares for her every day and both of them try to get along with their new reality.

Now, that reality is every day Lillian says, “I wish your father was here. I miss him so much!”

And she longs for the day they meet again.
