“You know you can take a break…any time…it’s OK to take a break.” I said as I held his hand in mine. “If I could take any of your pain for you I would.”
Charlie looked at me and said, “You can’t take it but it’s OK.”
“You know I love you and I will always be here for you.”
I could see a small tear begin to form in his eye…it was a tear which mirrored the one already starting to trickle down my cheek.
“I know Barbara and I love you too.”
