Whoever marries the spirit of this age will find himself a widower in the next.
We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan;
and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
I'm a widower with three sons and seven grandchildren. One of my sons is my partner on the ranch.
