Of two loves

How do you say goodbye, when you didn't even have a chance to say goodbye?

My friend had married her high school sweetheart (though he was from a different high school). They were together for almost 20 years. He passed away last week. Suddenly. First there was the pain, then, it seems like right after, the passing.

She called him her "beautiful husband."

I phoned a mutual friend to give her the numbers. She'd been crying. It was a terribly hard decision to put Ebony down. For 16 years, her cocker spaniel had given her much joy.

It didn't help that she had a chance to say goodbye.
