Random Pick-up : Loss and appreciation

A man walked in our restaurant yesterday for dinner.. very old man. so my friend served him. he was sitting in front of an old couple. Then he started crying. So my friend walked to him...

 

Kathy : What's wrong? Why are you crying?

Old Man : Oh it's nothing. The cane (Pointing at the walking stick lying beside the woman) reminds me of my partner. My partner passed away last week.

Kathy : Oh my goddness... Do you have any children?

Old Man : No, my partner was a male.

Kathy : Oh I'm sorry for your loss.

Old Man : We've been together for 54 years.

 

Part of my shock went to the man's second response but more goes to the last sentence. Living with someone for five years is not easy, what more half a century? Now I really believe that true love waits - you just have to learn to not to be bored with each other, live up the freshness, go through life adventures and appreciate love and forgiveness. Ain't easy but that's how far the old man and his partner stood.
