After the loss of my wife, our 21 years came to a sudden and abrupt end. My family of Legionnaires was very supportive, and I received numerous buddy calls. Though I proclaimed that I was fine, there was a empty spot in my heart. I knew and the Legionnaires were aware that at any moment the fire of grief could burn to strong to overcome. The Buddy Checks were truly dousing those fires. I thank all of my Legionnaire family for their love and support.
