On behalf of my wife and myself please accept our condolences for you loss. What you did for bill was give him the greatest gift he could ever receive. To have someone like yourself and your wife by his side in the final months, days, and hours is a gift that can not be measured. One could be so lucky to have someone as caring as you and your wife at their side during their final moments.

Everyone, Thank you for the kinds words. I was doin' OK until I read all these messages. Now tears are rolling down my face. You are all the best.

It's strange here. I seems I can't remember what it was like before, but now it's different. It's only been 5 months, but it seems bill lived here longer than that. I guess it's 'cause he was in our hearts even though we didn't see him every week....not even every month. Now.... empty house. Marty & I went for a walk at 10 o'clock last night. I can't say why, other than we couldn't sleep... but we could leave the house. I guess we just wanted to feel that odd freedom. It was cold! It didn't take long to get to sleep after we got back.

Happy Easter everyone. Christ is risen, it's a new life from here forward.

KInda missed this one, not in as much lately. I can't say God bless you Freddy, but I can say I understand what special people you and Marty are. My mother and father took in 4 elderly relatives in my younger tears until they died. They did it because that is the way it used to be. Most certainly the last several months have been special ones for Bill as opposed to lingering in a nursing facility. And you brought tears to my eyes also as I am not "home" for my mother in her later years.

Friends and family...two of the most important parts of our live. You and Marti have see a good deal of this side of life lately, and none or us will leave this life in a different way. Part of aging we all face......made much more palatable with the kind of folks you are when the REAL need is there. Bill is in a better place today, and will look fondly back at those who helped his journey. Doug
