    Mary, I so appreciate hearing from you. Thank you very much for your blessing and your prayers. You are in my daily prayers for comfort. I don't know how you can love Marty as you do and not be overwhelmed and battling this loss. It is really helpful, I'm sure, to think of his being with Jesus right now...the eternal "now". Without God with us, the sorrow of life would be too much to bear...I am grateful for Him beyond words. Thank you so much, Mary, for stopping by. God bless you and keep you. Love, Ann

    Thanks for the support and for the advice, Netty.... I am in day 17 now of life without Marty. Just like ALS this part of it sucks on multiple levels. Right now people are still supportive - it's so soon still and he went so fast (for them) - I've been dealing with his failing health for over 5 years - but his dx was 4-27-10 and he died on 6-30-10 so it was really fast from dx to death. Life without him is bland and colorless - he was such a fun guy and he made friends everywhere we went. But I am doing firsts already - I went to my first play at The Alley without him last night. But I'm glad I went. So, tonight taking it easy. I'm going to keep taking steps into the future - because to do any less would dishonor Marty's love for life and for me....

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I am not going to tell you the normal 'bs" that time heals all, because it doesn't. Freddie has been gone for over a year, I could tell you down to the moment, but I am trying not to dwell. This disease is the worse. I have lost my soulmate, my true love but most of all I thought my reason for living. Yes I will never get over what happened to me.NEVER, but life is going on, All I can say to you is don't let people tell you how you should feel, I have found those people were usually the ones that were NOT there because they didn't want to "look" at it.
    I spend alot of time with my grandchildren that are older now because I missed them when they were young due to taking care of Freddie.I guess what I am trying to say is take "your" time in healing, You were the one that also lived in the hell, It takes a part of us all.
    I am going to school in the fall to be a RT. Funny how things work out...
    much love to you all

    I'm hanging in there - missing Marty but I still think he was blessed by God to be able to go out on his own terms and when he wanted to - not everyone gets that option. The article in the Houston was nice.

    Oh Mary-I'm so sorry that your husband/heart/partner has passed. I am crying more than I expected-you and your husband's story has so touched my heart. Prayers of peace to you as you walk these next days...weeks...months. I know that the memories of your life will eventually allow your heart to soften the pain of your loss.

    So sorry for your loss, Mary. I feel your pain, and also Marty's peace. As a widow of 4 years, I can tell you that the pain softens in time, but the love remains strong because of the good times you shared. I hold you in my prayers.
