Our Final Goodbye

We laid my husband to rest today. The graveside service was simple, but elegant. Each of us will remember the way Ron touched our hearts and lives..

JBG had an opportunity to lay a single rose on her grandmother's grave. My mother passed away almost seven years ago and they were very close. My parents' plots are side by side with ours.

I just want each of you to know how much we appreciate the love and kindness you have shown our family.

I will still be here to support all of you, my friends. The numbness has not yet worn off, but I know in time we will heal from this loss. At first, the silence will be deafening, but I will always have my memories of the man who taught me so much about this life.

Luv,

Wolfen

I've thought of you and your family a lot these past few days, Wolfen. You sound so strong - wish I had your grit. I understand about the numbness and the idea of facing the silence. We will all be here for you. Thanks for sharing Ron and your love for each other with us. He was a brave man to face all that he was facing without falling to pieces. I'm sure your support meant everything to him. Take care of you now.

I am so sorry about your loss, my heart breaks for you and makes me sad that you are going through this.  I can only imagine the pain you are feeling and makes me think about my family and how special life is.  I can only pray that he is in a better place and someday you will meet him again in a place with no pain and no suffering!

Wolfen,

Your family has been my thoughts so much the last few weeks as you faced these challenges together.  I am so sorry on the loss of your beloved husband.  He sounds like he was a wonderful man and you had a long and loving marriage.  I am glad that you were able to have your family with you as he transitioned to the next life.

Sending all of my love and support.  Just do your best.  That's what my mom always says.  On days when you can't get up, don't.  On days when you can, do.  That's all you can ask from yourself.  A big squeezy hug, love Helen
