Condolence letter from the President

You know… John would appreciate this.

It really sucks that he’s not here to see it.

Yesterday, this came in the mail.

Mail from The White House

Yes, The White House

No street address needed

Today, I opened it.  I got the letter opener out for this one.  John was always a letter opener type of guy.  He’d slowly and methodically sit down and open his mail.  Me… I was a stick a finger in it and open it type of gal.  Opposites attract, what can I say.

Condolence letter from President Barack Obama

John didn’t get excited about a lot of things.  It wasn’t his nature, but I know he’d be pretty thrilled with this one!  Kind of like when Barbara Mikulski personally spoke to him on the phone to tell him about Community Fire Company of Rising Sun being awarded the fire grant that he had written.

Wish he was here to see it.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
