As everyone else here, I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. It must have been a terrible shock and as the reality sets in the days can become dreary. Close friends and family will be so helpful. I hope that your thoughts are mainly filled with wonderful memories, which cannot be taken away.

I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. Over the years you've shared stories about the two of you that showed what a loving, committed and good partnership you had. That's a treasure.

My sincere condolences to you and to your daughter. Peace and rest to you both.

When you lose the one you love
You think your world has ended
You think your world will be a waste of life
Without them in it
You feel there's no way to go on
Life is just a sad, sad song
But love is bigger than us all
The end is not the end at all

- Willie Nelson

Very sorry to hear of your loss.

I just saw this today, missed it yesterday.

I'm so sorry to read this. As you said, probably the best way to pass, but so suddenly leaves everyone in shock, with no time to process it or prepare.

I lost my dad in August 2021, somewhat unexpectedly. His health had declined, and he was falling regularly. My mom was unable to pick him up, so she had to call 911 every time.

His mental faculties were waning as well. He had diabetes and other health issues (kidney failure, which I didn't know about until toward the end). He was in a rehab when he passed. They said a nurse was with him, I hope that's true.

We were supposed to visit him the day after he passed, but COVID restrictions had cancelled that. We hardly got to see him for the last month or so of his life. It still makes me sad. Mom barely got to see him in there.

I'm only sharing as the 56 year old son of an 84 year old man. I knew it was coming eventually, but it was sooner than we thought. Our hope was he would at least make it through the holidays.

Mom is 82 and living alone, we talk almost every day. She has lost some of her friends recently, too. She'll move into senior living this year, I expect. We'll clear out my childhood home and put it up for sale.

My hope is you have good support of friends and family. Feel free to share here (as you did) and don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything from your internet Mac pals. We're an odd but good bunch (I think).

Blessings and love,
Dave
