Death of a son 

( Billy’s thoughts – The story below is old. However I still believe it is something worth posting. ) 
Omaha labor leader Terry Moore Sr., a tour de force of wit and political dealmaking, hardly sounded like himself on Friday.
The window shades were down. He didn’t want to leave his home. He couldn’t get through a conversation without breaking down.
His son Terry Jr., with whom he’d lived for nearly all of Terry Jr.’s 47 years, had died Wednesday after a heart attack in their living room. It was so sudden and unexpected.
“He and I were just inseparable,” said Terry Sr., who is 73. “Terry is … was my life.”
Where you saw one Terry, the other was not far behind.
( Terry Moore Jr. was ‘a bright light’ even in his father’s big presence )
