Brad was a soldier in the Canadian armed forces he was realeved of duty . The arm bus was bring the soldier to their homes and families . When brad walked into his house he dropped his bag and went up stairs to his bed room to find his wife in bed with another man . he went back down the stairs took his bag and put it on his motor cycle and drove away as he was driving away his wife rain out of the house screaming “please don’t leave I can explane ,”but he kept driving away .

She watched him drink his pain away a little at a time , but he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind . Till the night, he put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger ,he  finally  drank  away her memory ,life is short but this time it was bigger. But he couldn’t find the strength  to get up off his knees. They found him with his face down in the pillow with a note that said , ‘I’ll love her till I die.’ Then they buried him beneath the willows .

At the funeral the minister said ” Brad will be loved by all and he will be with her in heaven they will spend eternity together , he will be mist by his family and his aunts and uncles.  Now we will get his Dad to say some words about him.”

Brad’s Dad said in sad tone of voce “Brad was a great kid he always help when he seen someone that needed help, he was always help his grandpa with the farm , and he always help them find their dogs when they rain away , he was always willing to help when there was a need of help.”Then Brad’s Dad started crying.

The minister said “now we will be going to the burial and after there will be some refreshments.”

The rumors flew, but nobody knew how much she blamed herself . For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath . She finally drunk her pain away a little at a time , but she never could get dunk enough to get him off her mind . Till the day she put the bottle to her head and pulled the trigger , she finally drank away his memory . Life was short but this is greater then the strength to get off her knees . They they found her with her face in the sofa and she was clinging to his photo for dear life . They laid her next to him beneath the willow.

At the funeral the minister said ” she will be loved by all and she will be with brad in heaven they will spend eternity together , she will be mist by her family and her siblings. Now we will get her mother to say some words about her.”

Her mother said ” she was dating brad since they were in high school I never knew why she was another man.”

Then the minister said “There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the graved. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.We will miss brad and his wife but now they’re together in heaven.”
