  1. It was awesome to hear, all of the hosts comforting and bring cheer to the first caller who is a widow. It bought a bit of warm-fuzzy feeling inside me :)

  2. Patricia Fancher says:

    You GO Steve! Had a friend who simply asked her husband to wear CLEAN clothes when they went out together to eat and he refused telling her that he is who he is and she needed to accept it. How unloving! He told her also to quit trying to change him. I was not trying to change him. She simply wanted a clean husband with clean clothes on when they went on a date night.

    • How unloving, and how gross. I wonder if he is trying to get her to leave him? To stop trying is a clear way to say you don’t care.
