Just Say, “I Love You”

Written by Pat Nowak on March 24, 2011

Pat Nowak and her late husband

In thirty seconds, it is all over.

My husband, the major breadwinner in the family, was killed instantly in an auto accident. I never had a chance to say good-bye.

If I had five more minutes I would have say, “I love you,” as we often, in our haste to begin our morning, forgot to.

My family suffered after the death; so many things were left hanging without resolution.

I have learned that it is imperative that we live each day committed to saying, “I love you,” and working in harmony; you never know if there will be a tomorrow.
