That is so sad. It reminded me of my grandparents. When grandpa died,my grandma mourned him for 10 years, even through she still had all of us who loved her. She truly died of a broken heart. she loved him that much.
t remember what movie this was from, Their was a bunch of students in a class, all asking what do you want to be when you grow up. One kid is staring out the window at an old women walking alone in the park. When it comes time for his answer, he says in a low voice. "When I grow up I never want to be alone"
