For 10 years, retired criminal defense attorney Joe Ingber has placed a small ad in the Los Angeles Times in tribute to his late wife, Eileen, who died of cancer in 2002.
L.A. Times columnist Steve Lopez shared Ingber’s tale of how the 81-year-old man placed an ad twice a year honoring Eileen: one on her birthday and another the day she died.
Every year, he writes something a little different to his wife, who died at the age of 68. The two were married for 40 years. By placing the ads, Inger told Lopez it was his way of grieving and to get it on the record that “the feelings are still there.”
