Precious Moments

Sarah recently buried her husband. David was terminally ill for a number of years and Sarah felt fortunate to prepare for his death. They were retired and sometimes enjoyed their time quietly on the deck watching the birds. Every night David expressed his appreciation for Sarah’ support. Sarah treasured holding his hand and cherished another day together.

I was friendly with David and Sarah, not knowing the extent of their relationship behind closed doors, but I was touched by how they demonstrated the loving power of relationships. This couple truly spent the last couple of years grateful for each day they had together—appreciating precious moments.
