3 years post ALS

Nearly three years have passed since my PALS Krissy passed. We've been fortunate since then, as though God is giving this atheist a reward for being such a good CALS. We think of her often and her ashes are on the mantle next to her favorite Tigger and photo, but we don't observe any services or anniversaries. We carry on without her. I've attempted dating (rarely) but there is no one who measures up to the standards she set. So I'm not highly motivated to find a new wife. Maybe when both kids are off to college I'll change my mind. I still hang out here because I consider PALS and CALS both to be really brave people. I understand the tough issues and hope I can give something back to the community that helped me keep my sanity in Kris' final days.
