My beautiful man passed away today about 3.40 in the afternoon. The nursing home phoned me just after breakfast so I went straight there and our dear friend Maureen joined me there, and we sat with him all day. The nursing home fed us, and we reminisced about him and his life, and talked to him too, and held his hands, knowing he could feel and hear us although he was unable to respond. He was very peaceful and comfortable all day, and went quickly and easily. He did wonderful things in his life, and was a treasured friend and mentor to many. I have been very blessed to have 20 years with this incredibly loving man.


  1. Rosemary, I am so sorry for your loss of such a treasured friend. You were truly blessed with his friendship as he I'm sure he was with yours. And how fortunate he was to be surrounded with people who love him. Who could ask for anything more than this beautiful gift of friendship and love in our last moments.....Cynthia

  2. May he be at peace. May you find comfort in your memories. Thinking of you.

  3. Thank you both for your thoughtful comments.

  4. I missed this, Rosemary, in the flurry of my own happenings. A Grandchild was born 2 days after your husband passed. I'm glad you were with him to the end and that he felt your loving presence. Hugs to you from CO.
