A good man will open up and be honest about his feelings. Dad was so venerable in this letter. He opened his gut and spilled out the pain of having to leave his new bride standing there. He worried because he did not know if his wife got home OK or not.
Dad wasn’t ashamed that he was going to cry himself to sleep. He wanted Mom to know it was hurting him as much as it was hurting her that they were going to be apart for so long. I never saw my dad cry. He saved that as a private revelation with my mom.
