I am sorry to read here what you have recently been through and your loss. You know that you are among friends here who know what you've been through as a supportive spouse and caretaker. This forum has been great for both patient and caregiver, because it allows us to see that we are not alone in our efforts, grief and perseverance. Caretakers learn so much about themselves witnessing the goodness that surrounds us in all that we do. I have a special appreciation for the caretakers on this forum who hold it together for their families. Marriage and partnerships are sometimes underestimated in our current world, but here on this forum I have witnessed the beauty of committed relationships and loving families. They always seem to take the edge off of very difficult circumstances, and like a hand being removed from a bucket of water, the family "fills in" the open space created. It's a natural phenomena when memories and family coalesce around a grieving family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and know that we are here in common friendship to help support you in your healing. We all share a common bond here and forever we will be here for you.
With deepest felt sympathy.
