I know that Val is not doing well. He is in a nice comfortable home and your daily visits are comforting for both of you. Take care.xx

I so appreciate you walking the walk with me. I go to see Val several times a day for short visits. I softly, sing him the "Evening Prayer" from the opera Hansel and Gretel and sometimes he squeezes my hand.

When at night you go to sleep,
Fourteen angels watch do keep;
Two your head are guarding,
Two your feet are guiding;
Two are on your right hand,
Two are on your left hand.
Two who warmly cover,
Two who o'er you hover,
Two to whom 'tis given,
To guide your steps to heaven.

Sleeping softly, then it seems
Heaven enters in your dreams.
Angels hover round you,
Whispering they've found you;
Two are sweetly singing.
Two are garlands bringing,
Strewing you with roses,
As your Soul reposes.
God will not forsake you
When at last death takes you.

Luise, How blessed is Val to have such a loving partner in you?! I only hope when your time comes, you are wrapped in the warmth you have so lovingly given to him, us and all who have had the blessing of you in their lives.  Just know that even if we are not near, you will be in our hearts forever!

Even tho, I have been away, I am not too far to send my love to you with wishes of peace and comfort.

Thank you for this site and for being one of those 14 angels,,,,,on earth:)  I know for a fact,you have made my LIFE better!

Biggest hugs to you dear friend!

A widow one day. I woke up yesterday married. Grief hits like wave and takes me down…then it's a while between waves.

I appreciate all of you so much. What a blessing you are. Between the waves I mentioned above are the peaceful times of being balanced and grounded in the joy of having had 23 years with the only person I have ever known capable of unconditional love. He never spoke an unkind word to me and I can be a real pill!
