RD,
After reading your post #55, I can tell you that I think you are a hero.
I saw that same devotion in my father as he helped my mother as she suffered and later died.

As I told him later, I don't think I could have done it.

Sounds like you have been blessed with a great marriage and family. But it is very tough to have a loss like this... very sad.

Thank you for all the help you've been to the forum here and anything you contribute in the future.

RD,

I am very sorry to hear that.

As you should recall, I owe you more of a debt that most on these forums.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to you.

Your example is a rare virtue.
Your loss can't be expressed by mere words.
Praying you are comforted.

Very sorry for you loss RD.

I am a bit jealous though. 52 years of happiness with another person was a pretty good run. Most of us have a ways to go to catch up to you.

Were you to post a picture I don't think she would mind.

You're a good man-and I'm sure you did your best to make your wife's years with you enjoyable. What more can anyone ask?
