Hold your wife’s hand, every single day

I lost my wife on Feb. 28 of this year. It doesn’t really matter how she died. She did die and took away 80 percent of my identity.

In her remembrance I want all males to know that you need to hold her hand. She wants that but will never ask it. It your responsibility to drop your hand down and I will guarantee that she will hold it.

It is better than that superficial kiss in the morning and evening. I tried as best I could to do that, but looking back there are times when I didn’t. I was always holding her hand. But I lost too many minutes when I didn’t.

To you women who read this, share it with your spouse or significant other. This is a big deal. You need to hold each other’s hand.

So many relationships that failed would not have if they just held hands. I mean every day. Hold her hand. I would be so lucky if I could hold my wife’s hand now. The last time I held my wife’s hand it went cold. She just turned 54.
