loss of my hon and son

My husband took early retirement at 62. At 65 he was diagnoised with lymphoma and died at 67.

My 52 yr old son died two yrs ago from a brain tumor.

My 53 yr old dtr has been diagnoised with mental illness

My husband was my "KNIGHT IN SHINNING ARMOR"

I was orphoned at 8yrs old and was in several foster homes. At age 20 I met him and three yrs later we were married.

We had a wonderful, happy marriage and 5 children. I miss him a lot.

Each day when I get up I start my day with an hr of quiet time to get me thru each day.

I have 4 wonderful dtrs and three great son in-laws who have been my strength.

I'm fortunate to live near a bike trail and this is my place of worship.
I walk, bike and cross-country ski for mental and physical stremgth.

I also volunteer at a local hospice(since my husband died). Doing this has been very rewarding.

I truly hope there is something beyond us so that I will see my husband and son again.
