Ron

So sorry for your loss.

Be careful my friend that it doesn't grind you down. My wife had her stroke 3 years ago this month. A bad journey for sure and now she is in hospice care. Although she has come to terms with what awaits her, that slow trip toward the inevitable conclusion has nearly broken me. 52 years together is no small thing.

As my daughter said “I want mom to have peace and wholeness in heaven.” Your wife is there now. Mine will soon follow. Sometimes even the memories won't suffice. Reality always trumps. And reality will come at you when you least expect it. Have a friend or relative that you can call on. I tried booze for a while and it is certainly no friend. Don't do it.

Best advice I have received is “make no big decisions for one year.” Seems like good advice.

Something I constantly rely on:

May God grant me the ability to change the things that I can,
to accept the things I cannot change,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

May God be with you.
