(Titusville FL USA)
We met at work, at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville AL in 1983. We married in 1985, then moved to new jobs at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Then, 29 years later, a few weeks before our 29th anniversary, Laurie died on 4 June 2014. The first several weeks were a period of shock in which I dealt with all the things with which the surviving spouse must deal. Now that's mostly done, and I now have no idea how I'm going to get through to the 'promised land' wherein this grief will subside enough to allow me to find even the smallest joy or hope in life again. I'm 63 years old, and being so much closer to the end of my life than the beginning, the effort to continue is overwhelming.
