Mom and I are sitting in the car as dad reads a sign just outside of the car. Mom is sitting in the back seat & I am in the driver's seat. She is looking out the window at dad and says,
"I don't know what I would do without that guy."
A long pause.
"He is getting kinda of old tho."
Another long pause and much feeling in her words.
"But I like him."
Her voice held all the love in the world for dad at that moment. It was precious and I hear her voice in my head whenever I think of that day.
