I’ve known my wife since the second grade and we’ve raised three children and have fifteen grandchildren. She is the best partner I could have had, and it’s been over forty years. She has kept me grounded, and when she was sick, I took care of her. Now I’m sick, and she is taking care of me. She has Parkinson’s disease and is managing, but I’m not sure if I’ll get through my sickness.
Death is part of life, but making sure that she is okay and making sure that she will have the love of our children and grandchildren is what really matters to me. She allowed me to have my career, while staying home to raise our children. We finally bought our retirement home, and it’s been great, but now with my medical issues, we decided to sell our home and move back to be closer to our children and their families. Selling our home made us shed quite a few tears, but we both know that in life when one door closes, another one is opened. We’re going to walk through the open door knowing that as long as we are together and still very much in love, we both will hold each other, say our goodbyes, kiss each other and hold hands until we both meet in heaven. I am forever her Honeybunny and she is my Snugglebug.
