My husband Jim passed away last week Tuesday 9/02/08 at the age of 62. He was a healthy normal functioning man 7 weeks ago. The past 2 months have been so intense. Full of questions & promises. Watching the progression of this terrible, disease that so quickly claimed his life was horrifying. Everything I have been reading on this site is exactly what we have been through & more. Finding this site has answered a lot of unanswered questions for me & has given me some comfort. Right now I am feeling empty & hopeless. I was only 15 when we first met. We had 45 wonderful years together which I am grateful for, but I guess I selfishly wanted a lot more. Now all I have left is the memories. As time goes on, hopefully I can be of some help & comfort to others who come here seeking it. I am so glad I have found this site & hope that others in our situation will be lead here also. Thanks to all of you for being here.
