A Valentine’s Day tale

He and his wife lived in seperate buildings of the same nursing home. She has “Old Timers,” and needed special care. His son came the day before Valentine’s and they went to visit her, taking flowers. Son wanted to take Father to lunch. After seating his father in the car, he struggled to get the wheelchair into the trunk. Upon success he returned to the front of the car to find his father, in those few minutes, had died.

I got the rare, and very much appreciated opportunity to use my creative license (which I posses in abundance) to list, as surviving, “…his Valentine and beloved wife of 60 years…”
