Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy. The thought of continuing through life without them by your side is often hard to fathom. Whether the passing is completely unexpected, or something for which the family is prepared, neither scenario is easy. Everyone finds different ways to deal with heartache. Some endure a great grieving process for some time and prefer solitude. Others choose to constantly surround themselves with the loving comfort of friends and family to help keep their mind at ease.
Then there are folks like Charles “La La” Evans who handle loss in a completely out-of-the-box way. He lost his beloved high school sweetheart after spending fifty-nine years and eleven months together. The way he lights up at the thought of her is proof enough of their powerful, pure love. There isn’t a day that goes by where he doesn’t reminisce about the time spent with his sweetheart. Because of his deep love and devotion to his late wife, he comes up with a very creative way to keep her memory alive.
He turns their home of sixty years into a museum in honor of her memory. From the outside all through the inside, there are symbols, photos, and decorations all carefully placed. The time it has taken him is unreal. Walls are filled with photographs of the joyous times these love birds spent together. It’s a beautiful reminder to him, daily, of the sweet life he lived with his darling by his side. When a music group called Mutemath hears of his story, they know they have to spread the word. In their music video, they show the true character of La La and his deep devotion to his late love, Louise. Check out the beautiful tribute, below.
