It probably wasn't the best idea to read this story while my computer at work was chugging away uploading huge documents. Fortunately, I was alone and no one was witness to my tears.

The unpredictability of war, the housing market and Florida weather can change lives in a flash. The ending was a little uncertain for me too, but I hope that Tony found some closure.
