I haven't been on here a long time.
But I wanted to let you know that my dear wife, Rachel, died peacefully on Dec. 27, 2017.
I'm so happy she doesn't have the physical struggles anymore, particularly the difficulty breathing.
But I'm left with a huge void and hole in my heart right now.
So, I now try to be like she was as she gracefully accepted that her time would be short, and take it a day at a time.
Prayers to all of you still fighting the battle that you can have more success.
And prayers to those who will lose a loved one. May you find peace amidst the struggle.
