Tuesday evening my husband passed peacefully in our home with our son, me, and his devoted dog Maxwell curled beside him.  I wanted to share with you some information about this extraordinary man that I loved. Link to article below (I don't know how long the link will work). When you go to the site, click on his picture and it will open an article. 37 years together ... it is hard to imagine that he is gone, but my son and I are both relieved that he will no longer suffer. I am in the process of planning his cremation and in the future, when our emotions have settled, we will have a celebration of his life. Thank you kindly for your support and best to you all.
