Missing Him So Much

So sad to write that I lost my husband on March 15th. It was a terrible shock as he was doing as well as someone who had Parkinsons for 15 years could.....on Rytary and still walking. But I had put out of my mind that he also had cardiovascular issues and that was what he died of!. The blessing was that after we had a lovely dinner (his favorite!) and a glass of wine together (which was rare), later he went to sleep and did not wake up in the morning. The shock for me was terrible but I am helped by the thought that he had such a peaceful passing. We were married for 59 years and I feel as if half of me is gone. Even though I am happy for my honey's peaceful passing, it is hard to deal with this loss in my life and in our home.
