John's Passing

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Hello all my spokespeople friends.
Here I am in Florida for good. We sold our home in Waterbury VT in August. My wonderful husband John was getting weaker with his lung capacity down to less then 20%. Doctors told us in April he had
a 50/50 chance of lasting a year. He wanted to die at home in Florida. He got his wish and passed away Feb 5th. The Hospice people were wonderful. My heart is heavy and my house is empty without him. I was his caregiver during his decline and I used to tell him of all the jobs I had, and I liked them all, taking care of him was my best job ever.
My days are long now that he is not here. I just started getting back I to volunteering and am now walking in the pool here.
Support from both Florida and VT has been healing. My memories will see me through this time of grieving.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I stopped by your page to see your quilts, and then looked at your blog list. I'm a quilter too. I'm sorry to hear about your husband. Take the time you need to heal.

    I am so very sorry for you loss. I'm facing the same situation with my hubby only it's his heart that's at 20%, not his lungs. Hopefully though, I have a few more years with him.

    I hope in the days ahead you'll find some peace, and know he's in a better place. emoticon

    I am so sorry you have suffered the loss of your dear husband,I know that pain first hand,although I had 2 young sons the house still felt empty and preparing dinner lost a
    lot of joy because my husband was not coming home from work to enjoy it and to share his day.
    All I can say to you is time will help,and in the meantime think that your DH is at peace,
    you have many memories to treasure, stay in touch with family and friends and try to
    stay busy.. God Bless. emoticon
