Update on M.........

To those of you who read this story about M I just wanted to update you. Or if you're a new reader, I'd suggest you go read this touching story also about this veteran.

I received word a week or so ago that M died. He was brought in to the hospital and his wife called my son who was on duty that night and he rushed down to the ER. M was so bad my son knew it wouldn't be long. I weep as I post this because of that young father leaving behind his 6 young children and a wife. I can't explain why this particular person and circumstance touched me so deeply but it has. Saying all the platitudes won't serve his family well at this point. All they know is that they won't have their father or hubby around.
