Story Summary

After 63 years of marriage, Leo Stock is learning how to live without his wife Judy, who passed away on June 22, 2019.

It has been difficult for Stock to learn how to get by in their house without her. “I don’t want to go in there because I know she’s not there,” Stock says. Sometimes he talks to God and to Judy about feeling lonely. “I told them: Well, you got me into this, so you have to get me out.”

It’s a difficult transition, but Stock says he has a lot to be thankful for. “God must have a plan for me.”
