RE: [BrainSurgery@Yahoo] Jan L - The Long Goodbye
- Oh Jan. There are no words for me to express my sorrow for you but at the
same time my happiness that Ted is finally at peace. Thank you for doing
such a good job in supporting and caring for him right to the end. You are
such a shining example of the type of person we should all be lucky enough
to have next to us in our final days.
I hope you did get your love note and know that you will treasure that
forever. Please know that we are here if you need us.
Sending a hug,

brother in law is helping with that, it may take a couple of days.

items wants to come by tomorrow, too. I'm supposed to call everyone
in the known universe (social sec. admin., bank, medicare, etc.),
and all them are just going to have to wait their turn. Despite all
this, I need time to process my loss and help my collie start his
grieving, as well. He's better at expressing worry and emotion than
Well, I'm kind of numb right now. The Hospice nurse predicted that
Ted would pass this weekend, so I took a few minutes to buy some
chocolate, my comfort food of choicel Church people are helping,
partly be dropping off meals. Many are waiting in the wings to help.
That's all for now. Thanks to all for the kind messages of caring
and concern we've received from this group. They are much
