Last Friday - Wayne left for Tucson - April 5th. He had met a guy through the internet, they share the same interests for 'viewing the night sky' and he was so excited to have a Spring Break. He would be back April 16th...in time for his next doctor appointment. He has had a miserable year with his back and he finally got approved for his Spinal Chord Stimulator. More than ready to get his life back on track again!
Wayne and I had our first date - January 1977. We have traveled the world together, been best friends, supported each other through many of life's ups and downs.....he is truly the Love of my Life!!
Tonight I was sitting in my room reading, when Wayne's brother & SIL came knocking on my door. What a wonderful surprise.....
Theo grabbed a chair to sit beside me....she took my hand and said, "I'm so sorry.....Wayne died this morning."
Wayne collapsed at 8:30am and died on the way to the hospital. We don't know what happened as Arizona does not do autopsies. I'm stunned....in shock.....how can this be?
To bring him back, it would cost $20,000....so he will be cremated and his remains will be flown back. According to the doctors at the Tucson hospital - his drivers license had eye donor, so part of him will live on towards helping another person to see. Perhaps that person will come to love the night sky as much as Wayne enjoyed it.
Just when I thought my life couldn't get any worse........it did........
