Fast forward a few years. A college sophomore, no serious boyfriend and I learn Ed has been assigned to leave for Desert Storm. My heart falls to my knees. Of course we haven’t seen each other in a couple years yet I had already told a couple of my friends (at age 15), “I’m going to marry that Ed Buske character.” Everyone laughed except Von who responded with, “When do you plan on telling him?” We both laughed. It was this same friend who delivered the news Ed was leaving the following week. He can’t die; he is going to be the father of my children!
Today’s song was the one his sister sang for us at our wedding. And yes, we do live in a little house, lol, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
