I wrote you during the times we first fell in love. During those times we were parted when I was away however briefly, sometimes every day.
Now we will be parted for an extended period of time, not forever though, for the time it will take for my earthly life to come to an end. “We are to live until we die.” Not helpful at all to me. Our children, animals and friends would dearly miss me as they have missed you if I leave by my own hand early.
Joann was a wise choice. I am happy you enjoyed her company and her help. I have asked her to stay on for me. She has agreed and I hope she will be with me until the end of my life. All the legal work is done and people will see to an orderly dissolution of our/my estate. Now I am faced with caring for the animals and hoping to outlive them as I outlived you.
Mrs. Brown passed away from a stroke, or as it was with many, I had to have her put down to save her from an uncomfortable end.
Nancy is only vaguely aware of your passing, but she seemed to know not all was well when you had to leave.
I miss you and love you very much.
Love forever, Dave
