    Thinking of my DW

    My wife (best friend) of 30 years passed last month. I was with her 24 hours a day for 3 months, which I am thankful for.
    I don't post to often, but check in a couple of times a day. It is more like therapy for me. Reading all the posts from the regular crew seems like old friends. Three of our four children still live at home, makes moving forward a little easier. Did not want to bring anyone down, but pass on what she use to say to our kids.
    Live well
    Love deeply
    Be happy
    Care for one another
