It was a short but valiant fight, and saying good bye is never easy. However, the words spoken or written in an email over and over by the many friends, family and colleagues he touched celebrated what an amazing a man my husband was. Words like "special", "wise", "humorous", "dedicated" "champion", "pioneer", "unwavering commitment" "role model", reinforced all that I knew and all I want my children and grandchild to remember about their father/Poppa. Some people work tirelessly to make a difference. That is my husband's legacy...he made a difference in the lives of great many people, and yet his humility was profound. His past influences will, I have not doubt, continue to make a difference. He will be deeply missed. Today I start a "new normal". It will not be easy, but I have memories to share, smiles to smile and a pride that runs deep- very deep. He will never be far away, and it is a privilege to say I was his wife.

Family matters are pressing at this time. We have begun hospice care at home and I spend my days making sure my husband is comfortable and knows that he is not alone at any time. I will not be blogging in the foreseeable future as I continue to be his support and care giver. Thank you all for your notes and your well wishes. They are taken to heart and much appreciated.
