My Best Friend and Soul Mate
(Stockton, CA, USA)
The love of my life, soulmate, lover, husband, and best friend finally succumbed to the rare Lymphoma last December. I am devistated. The loss is still great, but I feel that I am somewhat coming out of the "fog" that I have been in since his death. It is hard, since we did not have children together and my step-children live in another city. We did everything together: work, travel, laugh, love, experience new "adventures". I only wish sometimes that he had not had to go on this last "adventure" without me, but I understand why he had to leave me. Today is his birthday and I miss him terribly. I know that this pain will lessen over time, but it is so hard to cope sometimes.
