I was driving in the hills of Kentucky where I had lost cell service for about 10 or 15 minutes. During that short time, I had missed a call from my mother-in-law and two from my parents. I immediately knew something was wrong. Panic set in.
One short phone call led to me finding out my husband had lost his father, my mother-in-law had lost her husband, my sisters-in-law had lost their dad, my brothers-in-law and I had lost our father-in-law, and our children had lost their grandfather. You can imagine the shock.
99 miles turned into the longest drive I've ever driven. The only place I wanted to be was next to my husband.
This was unexpected and far too early. Needless to say, we are all deeply saddened.
My father-in-law will be greatly missed by countless amounts of people including myself but my husband lost a piece of himself yesterday which makes my heart continue to break over and over again for him. Our lives will never be the same.
