The face of marriage
Officer Laura Gerritsen, life partner of Los Angeles Police Officer Spree DeSha, who was killed in the Metrolink train collision, touches DeSha's casket during funeral services at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles Thursday, Sept. 18, 2008.
JCF sent us this picture, which frankly makes me cry. This is the face of marriage: you know, all that better/worse stuff? This is the worst any of us can imagine. This is the "Where you go, I will go, your people will be my people" thing, taken to the agony of "why oh why did you leave me behind?".
This is love. How dare anyone tell us otherwise.
Our sincere condolences to Off. Gerritsen for her tragic loss, and to the other victims of Metrolink 111.
