  •  So sorry for your loss - and glad you had the time (1+ / 0-)

    Sorry that it didn't work for you! Doesn't always, but worth a try. It sounds as if you had a rich and happy life together and counted each day as a blessing.

    I was lucky to know exactly what buttons to push with my dad and to be the first-born daughter, with all the privileges of a special place in his heart for that. I try not to misuse these Special Powers. And despite his fear of doctors dating back to appendicitis and peritonitis and near death as a boy, he really liked Marsha once he met her, and he had great respect for her knowledge. He didn't do everything she asked but he listened, and he gave her business advice (he was an accounting professor) and did everything she suggested to take care of my mother.

    But he didn't expect to live to 97, and to become frail and more dependent, or to have my mother develop dementia. Perhaps he'd rather have gone suddenly 5 years ago. Sigh.
