Profile Information

About my Loss:
My loving hardworking husband of only 8 years died suddenly of the vicious disease, liver cancer. He worked very hard for us to have a good retirement and now our dream is gone; he'll never got to experience all the things he worked so hard to enjoy. There were no symptoms until it was too late and I hospiced him at home. The shock, the stress and the speed it took was unbelievable.

6/12/2012. Now my father passed away, the guy that told me to drive 900 miles to see him so he could give me a hug when my husband passed. I just have my dog now, its weird, but a loving warm breathing creature can bring alot of comfort.
