My plan for these years was to grow old with my wife. When she went before me, it hit me sideways because being quite a bit older I expected to “go first.”
Now in death, did she ascend or descend
Rise to the sky or stay down in the earth
Soulmates and suicide
When Harrison was seven years old, he was stabbed in the eye by a neighbor girl wielding a broken bottle during a quarrel and was blinded. His father and sister were killed in a car accident when he was twenty-one.
The empty room
Their marriage was made neither in heaven nor hell more like in limbo and tumultuous it was and tested by tragedy but it survived all that and thirty years flew by like wildflowers.
