Our neighbor came over yesterday morning to let us know his 78 year old wife had passed away. She had been the hospital for almost a month with gall bladder infection and was trying to get strong enough to handle surgery but her heart condition kept preventing it.
They are from Illinois so he will have her cremated and then take her home for burial. His two daughters are here with him now. The first came yesterday afternoon and the second this afternoon. It is good he has loved ones with him now. His plan is after the memorial he will drive back down here again and spend the rest of the winter.
We should all be thankful for the good health we have and the loving people we have in our lives. This is just one more reminder of how precious and delicate life is for all of us. Hold your loves ones close and always let them know how much you love them.
