My darling husband, Steve, peacefully passed away on August 26th. He was surrounded by our seven grandchildren, our son and his wife, and myself. It was such a peaceful passing! I cried my eyes out no only because he was gone, but also because he was flying free - no more pain, or air hunger. He went on his terms; at home with our family nearby. No feeding tube, no vent. He did not want to prolong the inevitable. We have so many wonderful memories over our 46 years. A week after he passed, I turned 65. It was bittersweet. Thank God for family & friends.
