This Navy Wife Brought Us To Tears Without Saying A Single Word

Anthony Lembo, a native of Queens, N.Y., served as a first class petty officer in the U.S. Navy. Stephanie married Anthony while he was still in the Navy. Anthony and Stephanie married six months after meeting at a Walmart and they had a child together. A beautiful start to their life, together.

Unfortunately, the story that Stephanie Lembo wants to share with you is not about her “normal life” married to Anthony. It is a story about the love she has lost.

On November 8, 2010, her husband committed suicide after experiencing symptoms of PTSD and sleep deprivation. While this was absolutely devastating to Stephanie, she knew she couldn’t keep her story a secret while so many others were contemplating ending their lives for similar reasons.

She had to do her best to warn others about the signs so that more people could get help. And she made that her new mission in life.

In the following video, Stephanie shares her poignant story with everyone by flipping through note cards without saying a word. She silently reacts to their contents in the background while she shows each slide, fighting back tears as she reflects on the past few years.

Her story is emotional, but one worth sharing. Watch the video below.
