From my desk: 08/20/2022

I just received a message from my daughter that her boyfriend of years ago has just lost his step-father to cancer. When I had first met the family, so many years ago, the gentleman had been waiting and had finally received a new heart, as his was failing. Now, after surviving that he was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He started doing better but there is only so hard a body can fight. RIP Tom.

As anyone can imagine this opens so many wounds that will only partially heal. It is hard to understand that if this is a part of life, why understanding it and dealing with it is not easier. Oftentimes when I am remembering my late husband and especially my son I think about all the people who have lost their loved ones, some in even worse circumstances than my own and I just have to think how lucky I was to have them in my life to begin with. As I have always said, and will continue to say, losing my son is a something that will never feel better.

I appreciate all of you who read my blog and offer support. I hope that in some way or at some time I can help someone too.

  1. I am sorry to hear about loss of Tom, may be RIP and no longer feel pain. It is sad that he battled so hard to get a new heart, only to succumb to stage 4 cancer. This reminds me of destiny and why when they say time is up, it is up and no way can one change fate. Loss of anyone is sad and they say time will heal but I tend to believe that even with time, it is still painful to remember. You are strong and I admire you for it.
