Not sure where you live, but it sounds like what Paul & I called snuggle weather. The weather is in the teens here in Ohio at night. Stay warm.
To my husband, I still miss you oh so much! On the eighth, was your birthday. You would have been 73. I often wonder what life would be like if you were still here. The diabetes seemed to take a little of you each day. I received a newsletter on Agent Orange just this past week, yes, they still send them and it is a reminder of how it may have impacted your life and eventually, your death.
The anniversary of your passing is in one week. It will be nine years! I have come a long way since then but missing you is one thing I cannot get over. I will always remember that awful day, the day you went away. I never had the chance to say good-by but I do know one day I will see you again. I find at least some comfort in the fact that you no longer have to stick those cannula in your belly and deal with the uncontrollable diabetes. How you dealt with all that, I'll never know.
No one has forgotten you down here. We have fond memories but we all miss your sense of humor, your caring, knowledge and calming effect during time of crisis. You taught me a lot and I am forever grateful. Till we meet again.
