Default Mary's Dave

Dave passed away this evening at 5:30. I am surprised at how shocked I was, while expecting it all day?! I will post in the memoriam thread when I can compose my thoughts. Right now they are flying all over the place. Thank you all here for your support and encouragement. I can't tell you how much it has meant to me these past two years.

Mary

I went ahead and started this thread, Mary, as I know there will be many posts. You can let me know if you want it retitled.

Dave was very fortunate to have your courage and compassion on his side, especially when he could no longer think or speak for himself. You made a decision out of love that you will never have cause to regret.

Much peace and strength to you and your family.

Best,
Laurie

I'm very sorry for your loss, Mary. Glad you could just be his wife in the end.
Many more feelings might surprise you in the coming month, it's all normal. However you go on is the right way. Hope to meet you here when you feel it is healthy for you.
Hugs!
