Plucked Away

My sister Nancy phoned to tell me that her husband, Rick, had died suddenly.
I thought back to our jaunt on a sunny Saturday just six weeks ago in his red convertible when he said: Come on, I'll take you to see your Perry Como. We were both in such high spirits.

I'm terribly sorry, Charles. Poor Nancy, and all the family. A prayer for Rick and for all.

Pia said...

Sorry I missed this one, Charles. My condolences to you and your family.

I missed the Perry Como one, too. Perry's family hails from Palombaro, a town which is about a half hour from here where I am living now in Italy. I loved his music!

Charles said...

Thank you, J.M. and Pia for your kind words. When I told Nancy I'd fly back over she said she would prefer to come here for some quiet days of grieving.

Pia said...

That sounds like a wonderful idea, Charles. Germany is such a beautiful country: I just got back from Munich, and I just loved the countryside. It reminded me so much of Pennsylvania.
