Two men in our church have lost their wives in as many weeks. Today was Helen Zarwell's funeral. This lovely lady died at age 93 after over 60 years of marriage to her husband Herb (Hub) Zarwell. I cannot even come close to fathoming what it must feel like to be without one's mate after so many years together.
These faithful marriages are such an inspiring witness to those of us who are just starting out. (With our 20th anniversary coming up in August, it may not seem like we are just starting out, but compared to people like the Zarwells, oh yes we are.)
