The Story Project - John

By: NNuser

John's wife of 31 years passed away just a little over a year ago. There's an old radio she got at an auction sitting on the end of their kitchen counter. When she was with him, it played WGTS 91.9 continuously. Until recently, he hasn't had the courage to turn it on. But when he turned it on, instead of the sadness he feared, he felt comfort listening all day as he was preparing the house for Thanksgiving company. He just can't explain how much it seemed to turn his house back into a home.
