My Husband's name was Mike
by Lori Bauer
He was an exceptional guitar player!
He passed away on March 25, 2012, he was 61 years old. Mike had been ill for several months and on Hospice care at home. He had actually been doing quite well for a very long time. One morning he came to me and said he felt like a switch had turned off in him. We both thought, maybe he had a bug? No, a switch really had turned off. He slowly slipped into a coma and 7 days later he died. I was able to be with him and hold his hand, trying very hard to not cry so I would not upset him. He took his last labored breath at 4:00 PM. I kissed him and said goodbye and told him "I Love you So".
That was last Sunday one week ago. The loss of Mike leaves a big hole in my life. ( 1/2 is gone ) We have been married for 23 years. Through good times and bad, we always loved each other and were completely devoted to one another. Mike was the best of men.....true and honest. I still talk to him everyday and tell him I love him. I find some peace in the hope that Mike is no longer suffering or in pain. Maybe he watches out for me? I miss him so much!
