To the family ..... and mostly to his wife. I want to offer my sympathy to you. The wife, friend, lover and everything else to your husband. Loosing your husband as you might know already is having your heart ripped out of your body. My healthy husband of 48 suddenly got sick and died. The pain is so sudden and you go through everything you have to do with "blank" on the brain. Your heart hurts so much you can't even imagine that it won't burst. So much I do remember from that time but there's so much I don't recall. Accept the love you are given, your family around you and my thoughts are with all of you.
