I recently retired from the Military. I'm in my early 50s, and I'm a father of 4 adult sons.
About my Loss:

We looked forward to traveling and spending time with our grandkids that we hoped would be coming in the near future. She beat Cancer twice, the last time five years ago. Then out of the blue she said she wasn't feeling well, went into a seizure, came out of it, and then while she was in the Emergency Room she went into cardiac arrest. I didn't see it coming and never got a chance to say goodbye.
