I lost my beloved wife Kathy November 8th, 2019. She was diagnosed with ALS January of 2019 and the progression was very fast.
I am still having difficulty dealing with her passing. Family and friends are a tremendous help. I know this will take time.
I was Kathy's primary caregiver through this whole process.
Please be patient with me, this is my first exposure to any forum.

Deepest condolences. That was indeed brutally fast. She was lucky to have you. There are other survivors here who lost their spouses who will be more than willing to share. I lost my mother and sister ( and others) to this but losing a spouse is different I know.

if you wish also to post in the in memoriam section you are welcome to do so ( one thread for condolences there one for discussion and help here) but you don’t have to. Whatever works for you best

You are so right Vincent, she is now FREE.
I was honored that I could hold her hand when she took her last breath.
Her sister and two nephews and myself were at her bedside.
