Now after my loss 6 years ago today I Begged God to let me know or be aware in his own way that by losing Darlene so young that something good would come from this awful mess. I just couldn't see how something so bad wasn't for a purpose but I didn't know what that purpose was and I wanted to know. I still would like a full awareness or full understanding of why this had to happen. But I have had little glimpses into why this happened and I have had many many good things come from this. One good thing that I think everybody here in Widville will like to know about. I met in the chat Room one night a widower from across the country he friended me and in his text to me I was almost like a celebrity in his eyes; he said he had read everything I ever wrote on here. That struck me kind of odd but when he said our losses were so similar he felt like he could have wrote everything I wrote right down to how our spouses our wives were ill and how they passed but he had no explanation whatsoever. I mentioned to him my wife was in a research study at IU here in Indianapolis and I asked where he was from he told me and through the IU researchers I remembered them telling me some of the family members left Indiana and relocated in his town they were not study participants they are in denial. I told this guy I would hook him up with the IU researchers and all they needed was a DNA sample and they could confirm lineage back to my wife's family with this inherited neurological disease that is always fatal the disease is named:

Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker disease. disease.   

So all that diatribe is why this song means so much to me.
