… well, it’s a date that’s seared in my memory. It’s the date I lost Chuck – 15 years ago. Hard to believe it’s been 15 years, seems like yesterday.
We were just a little short of 44 years. He was older than me and was pretty sure he would go before me. He always tried to have “things” where I could take care of them. He failed – I still need him.
He did go out with a ‘bang’ – well, a bang-up funeral, and all his own planning. If haven’t read about it and are interested it’s here.
I am so sorry, Iris. He looks like a very kind man. Love the photo of the two of you together.

Thanks Debbie – yeah I still miss him everyday, but Oct 16 is especially hard. But, I know where he is and one day I’ll see him again.
Oh, Iris – my heart is so full reading about Chuck – about the loving relationship you still share.

At the same time, explodes with anticipation thinking where Chuck is now, what he’s seeing, and what his face will look like the next time you see each other. The Reunion… Read more »
What kind and thoughtful words Cathy. He knew where he was going, as do I. I just wasn’t ready for him to make the journey, but then I probably never would have been. And you’re right, I still miss him every day. I love the quote!
Thanks for such sweet words. I’ll be looking for that hug!
