In Loving Memory

My beloved, my best friend with whom I spent the last twenty-two years, departed this life on Thursday, Nov 12, 2009, ten days short of his 76th birthday.  He had been so ill.  I was with him, along with one of his daughters and one of his grandsons, when he took his final breath.

At this moment I cannot begin to imagine what life will be like without him.  His health concerns occupied a lot of our time for several years and became intense in the current year.  As hard as it was at times, I do not regret one single moment of caring for him. 

The funeral will be Tuesday, and interment on Wednesday. Then I will begin the next stage of my life.

I'm so sorry to read of your loss. After reading your blog, I can't help but believe that Cliff's spirit will always be with you and Trouble. You are a wonderful woman, I can tell. Hugs, Sally

Dear Joanie,
I just checked in and read of Cliff's passing. How sad! You are facing the future with courage and you have lots of memories to draw on. My thoughts are with you.
