A Memorial to My Husband

Wealthy Widow or Not...

Just some thoughts rambling around in my head the last few days.

It is sad that so many people automatically think that if you are a widow you are a "wealthy widow" because of the insurance money, house, possessions, etc. This is not always true.

So if anyone wonders, "Yes", I consider myself one of the wealthiest widows alive because I had the unconditional love and protection of a good man who was also my best friend and who sacrificed much in his life to protect our country in the United States Army for 30 years.

My dear husband: It's been a little over a year now since you left me that early Sunday morning. I love you and miss you today as much as ever. You are on my mind and in my heart every day and always will be and I know you are still watching over me.

I love you Rea Bradley Ellithorpe.

Mrs. Rea Bradley Ellithorpe (Monna)

  1. Your blog is so very much the way many feel and go through when they lose their best friend.

    Keep writing and encouraging others.

    Your husband is so proud of you.

    Peace and Love, Babs.
