By Paul Gable
A story that began prior to America’s entry into World War II and spanned over seven decades had its final chapter Saturday.
My mother, Gladys Gable, died on that day, following her husband and my father, Paul Gable, into eternal rest by 40 days.
Having met in early 1941, they were engaged prior to my father shipping overseas in 1942. They were married December 1, 1945, 10 days after my father was discharged from the Army after the war’s close.
They celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary December 1, 2012, just before age and health issues ended this long love story.
My father died December 24, 2012, with my mother following this past weekend. It seems exactly the perfect ending to this romance.
Excuse us as we take a few days to attend to family matters.
