When you wish upon a star
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
My husband and I met 23 years and were immediately smitten with each other. I waited a long time to find him and he was the love of my life. We did a lot of stuff together but particularly loved anything Disney. This past summer we went on the Disney Fantasy and had a great time.
We were preparing for a pre-Christmas trip to Florida on Nov. 23 for 3 weeks and then 2 cruises in late January (including Disney Wonder). On Nov. 20, 2012 I went out to get my hair done for the trip leaving my husband happily playing Nintendo. When I got home 2 hours later I found his passed away on the bed, his ankles still crossed - it was a heart attack brought on by diabetic complications.
I miss him so incredibly much. I am so sad over the things that he didn't get to do that he was so looking forward to doing. I don't want our sports teams to do well as he is not here to see it happen.
This is a real roller coaster of emotions. Some days are good, same days are bad. it's been kind of tough since Valentine's Day.
I try to take one day at a time and with him looking down from heaven to help me through this I know I will make it.
thanks for listening to this story. our dream did come true for 23 wonderful years that I would not trade for anything. I just wish it could have been for longer.
