It Started With His Smile

Posted By Faith, Proud Military Widow of Sgt. Kyle J. Harrington

My husband told me he knew he was going to marry me the first time he saw me. I laughed at him and said yeah right. I had no interest in him whatsoever. So we became friends and slowly I started falling for him. It started with his smile. He had such a beautiful smile complete with one dimple. It was just so sincere you could tell he really cared about you. Then when you got to know him you got to hear his laugh. Its one thing that each and every story I have ever heard about him included. It could make the most serious moment eased and have everyone in the room laughing. It was so contagious, once you heard it you just couldn’t help but at least smile. He would go above and beyond to make anyone laugh even if it was at his own expense.

That’s the thing that makes things harder yet easier. (If that really makes any sense) On one side it’s awful to think of the world deprived of someone just so full of laughter and love. How many more people could he have touched or lifted their spirit? On the other side how can I not look back and smile. Everything I think of is happy and him joking and laughing. He wasn’t a sad person he was no holds barred.  I am so happy to say that our son has that same humor and is always making everyone laugh so I know Kyle will continue on in our little guy.

From me not even wanting to give him a chance. To marrying him, having two beautiful children and having an amazing 8yrs together. Now that’s really something to smile about.

I will always think of your smile and smile because you were mine.
