Till now I have not shared the three-year battle of my husband’s cancer on this blog. He never wavered in his determination but the last few months had become increasingly challenging. He passed away Thursday morning, June 2. I am relieved that he has found peace. Now that half of me is gone, there are many matters demanding my attention so I wanted a chance to explain the absence of my comments on your blogs and the lack of posts on mine. I promise I will return as soon as I am able.
We had a full and wonderful life together and I am trying to focus on being grateful rather than sad. My mom is staying with me now and providing great support. Jules’ son and daughter and my sister will be arriving soon. I am also blessed with some very dear friends. My mom says the girlfriend who stayed with us the final two days is more angel than friend. I feel fortunate to be surrounded by so much love during this emotionally charged and busy time.
