I have been overwhelmed by the love, compassion, prayers and thoughts from the good folks of this Forum since the passing of my wonderful, beautiful, loving wife of 47 years.
Her problem began when a drunk driver killed her Mother April 10, 2010 in Tyler, Texas. It was like a part of my wife died that night. She went into a state of depression and it seemed as though she didn't care if she lived or died. She and her Mother were very close. 2014 was a bad year for her as her health was failing. Then on January 3, 2017 I had to call an ambulance to take her to the Emergency Room. From that day on her health went downhill.
She taught school 41 years and her years teaching were 100% dedication towards starting those children on the right path in life. She taught 1st grade, kindergarten and pre-kindergarten. She was loved by her fellow teachers, teachers aids, school staff, parents and the children. The best thing is that my wife is no longer suffering. The challenge that I now face is the loneliness after being married for 47 wonderful years but time takes care of everything. It is a task sitting here trying to type with tears welling in my eyes. We had a good marriage and after 47 years we still loved each other.
Again I say 'Thank You' to all the folks that took the time to show your compassion to my wife.
