Yesterday - February 10 - marked the one-year anniversary of the passing of my wife and companion of 45 years, Lynn. It's been a long year in many ways, made even more so by the bankruptcy filing of my employer of 30 years - RadioShack.
Upon reflection, I have been very lucky to have spent such substantial portions of my life with one woman and one company. Both seem largely at odds with our society these days and I think that's a shame. In these days of "what have you done for me lately" loyalty and commitment seem to have lost their luster. More's the pity. Today it's cut and run at the first sign of trouble. And so today I salute my friends Ramana, Conrad, Marie (aka Grannymar), Maxi and the others who know or have known that level of commitment, loyalty and love in their lives.
For Lynn - well I wouldn't be me without some musical commentary so here we go.....
I sure hope my friends that say the hurt gets more bearable with the passing of time are right.
