I am very proud of this one…

Oh Loretta, this story.. it gave me shivers… in particular the part where you reach out to cover her underwear as she gets pulled away as you’re trying to maintain her dignity without even realizing it.. your love shows through deeply xx

Thank you Christy. When I shared this post with my siblings, they were all amazed at the details I remembered from that day. Some things will never be forgotten.
