It has been a long week
« on: September 10, 2013, 08:14:44 AM »
Morning folks. I've been kind of quiet for the past week.  My wife of 43 years passed away last Sunday morning.  I will miss her, but I have two great kids to remember her with.

Its great thoe that you have great kids.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

Very sad news John. Hang in there though. While it will be tough at times, sounds like you have 2 kids to lean on for some support. 43 years is something to take a tremendous amount of pride in.
