I Am So Glad I Loved Even Though She Is Gone Than


….. than to have never loved at all


Hi friends, on December 6 2011 I lost my first wife after 51 years of marriage.  The carnage of incurable cancer began 6 months ago. The hills and valleys of hope and despair were just part of the downward spiral to the end.

I truly believe, now you can tell the one you love a million times “I love You”, but you still want to tell them one more time.  I have been a little lax in my posting and am considering whether to post again or not.

Jewell passed quietly and when we arrived at the last 12 hours of her earthly life I held her and talked with her.  I was totally alone with her singing and hugging her.  I am so glad that God gave me the opportunity to walk her to the gates of heaven.  It just hurt to turn and leave her.

She is and will be sorely missed.

So you need to find the person you love right now and hold them and look them in the eyes and tell them you love them. Life has many 90 degree turns and we never know when or where they will be ocurring.

God Bless and a Merry Christmas,

Hi friends, when I began this blog 2 years ago I was at the end of what turned out to be a 51year marriage. My wife succumbed to cancer on 12/6/11 and life has not been the same since. It was and still is my goal here to promote long term marriages. There are many reasons this is difficult today, but I still believe it is possible and via this blog I will be trying to suggest steps you BOTH can take to save your marriage. Thank you
