Death in family
« on: March 02, 2014, 09:18:35 PM »
Just to let my fellow beaks and friends know,my wife Joan of 55 plus years passed away not long ago.Her wish was to remain at home until death,and i fulfilled that to the very end.I was with her holding her hand when she passed.I read the 23 palms to her about 30 min,s before she passed.
So it,s just me and the dog,back to batching. :'(

Losing someone you love is never easy, I hope and pray for your comfort and blessings during this time.
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

Carl,
So sorry for your loss, I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Man, that hurts. Will be 47 for us this month, and I can't even imagine the pain. Sure feel for you, friend.

sorry to hear.  i hope it will have been a comfort to you to have been together at the end. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Very sad news indeed. It never gets any easier mate. You just learn to live with it, and the key word is Live for everyday and never forget that.

Cheers

My heart and prayers go out to you. My sons service dog just passed away. It was very hard on all of us. I cannot imagine how hard it would be to loose you spouse.
