So sorry to hear this news Lloyd. You and your family have my sympathies. I lost my BIL almost two years ago. Suddenly. He was my age so it was way too soon. He was just a fantastic guy.

may i suggest that you send his wife a copy of Joan Didion's book, "The Year of Magical Thinking"....it is a worthwhile read for anyone who has been thrown into the emotional abyss by the death of their spouse. a retired librarian friend gave me a copy after my first wife's death (June 16, 2010) and since that time i have given between 40 and 50 copies to friends, and some to strangers. it is not about religion or philosophy, simply about the realities of life, and focused on this particularly painful time.

my second wife died, February 8, 2021, and i struggle daily to maintain my balance and a positive outlook on "things". i have come to look on this as a part of my education....but, i am always saddened when i learn that someone else has been enrolled in this school. please convey my most sincere condolences to his family.

best regards,

tom

Tom, I am so sorry for your losses as well. My wife and I have been married 50 years, and I often wonder what it would be like to lose her. The reality is that either she, or I, will likely find the answer to that question. You have my deepest sympathies.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

I'm sorry for your loss. I know how you feel and really wish something could help ease the losses suffered. A toast to absent comrades.

Thank you all! As is usual here, you folks are wonderful and insightful. Got through the worst of it yesterday. The final act is today (over in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania).

Tom, I will look for your book. Thankyou for the suggestion (& my condolences for your lost loved ones as well).

Lloyd

Praying for God’s peace and comfort to surround all of Marty’s family. What a loss!

the longer one lives the more one suffers the loss of others...

the sadness we feel is one of the down sides of being here so long...

life is good...

death sucks...

try too live and be as happy as you can...

I am sure that ed good's observation about getting older is truly the way life is. Growing older is also life's way of letting you know that you too are mortal so live each day as if it where your last.
These few lines I have always found have more meaning in bereavement than a thousand words.


Now that I am dead cry for me a little
think of me sometimes.
But not too much.
Remember me now and again as I was in life,
at some moment when it is pleasant to recall.
But not for long.
Leave me in peace, and I shall leave you in peace.
And while you live let your thoughts be with the living.
