Honestly, Pat Boone is not normally a guy you’ll read about on this website. Boone was the crooner of many whitewashed R&B songs of the 1950s who allegedly made a fortune at the expense of others.
This past week, Boone lost his wife, Shirley of 65 years. “We lived a wonderful, blessed life together for 65 years. I’ve parted with my better half for a little while… but we don’t die, we just move on to another place, and today was moving day,” Pat said of his high school sweetheart. “She’s changed her address is all and moved to a different mansion that I expect to join her in one day.”
His positivity in what has to be the most emotionally draining experience of his life is remarkable. May God bless him.
