Hi, my name is Sable, and I live in Oregon. I am originally from Wisconsin, which is where I lived until the age of 3. Then I was moved to Vermont until the age of 8, at which point I made a final move to Oregon. My favorite color is purple and burgundy, I love chocolate and coffee, and I love cats.
About my Loss:
My papa (grandfather) fought leukemia and then multiple myeloma for 8 years, before he passed away on the 19th of October, 2017. He lived to the age of 74. He was my mentor, childhood hero, and closest family member. I honestly don't know what I'm supposed to do without him,.

As hard as it is for the rest of us to endure the upcoming holidays it must be at least doubly difficult for you given the circumstances your husband and you were dealt with.
To everyone here who has put up with this hell for multiple…"
"Paul, In particular this time of the year everyone who hasn't lost their love is celebrating. I used to be one of them. Then one day a long time ago, I took my sick husband to the hospital Xmas Eve day and found out the day after…"
