Connected - part 2 - the ending of this piece

this is the ending for "Connected" --- it's just a wee bit too long for a single posting... "I can tell you now, my dear - regardless what we learn - because we had no kids, if you don't mind... When I join my Sarah I'd be pleased if you'd allow me to will you everything I'll leave behind!" Tears again, I reached for her...she gently took my hand, "I pray to God I find a man like you. Sixty-seven years of marriage says a lot," she quipped, "but that's not something I can let you do!" "Sorry, hon," I countered..."you're the child we never had, so that, young lady's, how it's going to be," And as she leaned to hug me, I said, "now that we're - 'connected' - I know dang well you'd do the same for me!"
