Well 3-years ago today 2-12-2017, at 2:05 a.m. I said goodbye to my first wife Darlene when she took her last breath. We were married 19 years, 4 months, 27 days; kiddo we almost made it to the 20-year mark.
God had other, bigger plans than either of us could have imagined.
You helped to further medical research into Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker disease (G.S.S.) and even contributed in some small way to the awareness of this disease. I recently found out about a TV show
(Watch "Indy woman with GSS excited about CBS show Pure Genius and hopes her family watches too." on YouTube -
that talked about this disease and the work you and a few other brave family members have done and those still living are doing for the good of ALL THE FAMILY; even the coward family members that won't partipate.
And in the lowest point in my life God has blessed me with the gift of helping others on the grief journey; particularly those who see no way out and no light at the end of their tunnel. This gift is no badge of honor, it's far too gutwrenching, but it is my calling for now. I'm proud to be a part of a larger group of people who share this same calling, together we will reach widowed people and let them know that we are truly there for them unlike a lot of their "good-time friends, churches, and co-workers", who abandon them.
I was blessed to have been a part of your life.
