The title really says it all.
I am handling it much better than I thought I would. Most of that is because, over the years, Myrna and I have discussed what we would do and what we would need to do when the other passed away. It sounds cold, however, we fully realize that death is a part of life. For example, she wanted her body given to Loma Linda Medical School. I knew this. I had the phone number. I did not have to try and figure out what to do---we had already decided.
Myrna had a file folder that told us guys where all of the papers were filed, what bills would need to be paid, etc. I VERY STRONGLY recommend that all of you do these things. It makes it so much easier on the spouse who still lives and is not thinking too well at the moment. If you have not done it yet, DO IT NOW!
Glenn has been a tremendous help. Greg would have been also, however he and his son were sick and were invited to stay away so none of us would get it. We definitely did not need illness added on top of the other things to take care of.
I have had 67 years of living with a wonderful woman. I cannot get upset because nature acts like nature and terminates us all in death.
Thanks to all of you my friends,
