Interesting that I happened to post what I did today, then I found David's post waiting to be read. David writes Five String Guitar. It is a beautiful blog in which he has been telling us about his struggle with deafness, and about his life, caring for his wife, Janet, who has had a four year fight for life with leukemia, and about their fourteen year old son, who I am sure has gained maturity beyond his years.
On Saturday, Janet lost her battle, and slipped quietly away. David's post today is a very lovely tribute to his wife.
I love what he has told us about Janet's attitude toward life and death.

The link to David's blog didn't work for me but I wanted to send supportive, healing thoughts to him and his son. How tragic yet so much a part of what we endure in life and love. Of everything, loss has got to be the hardest to deal with.
I'll try to check this out when I'm feeling a bit stronger. I'm a bit shaky this morning. I want to go find my happy place first. I'm so very sorry for David.
The link works for me. If it doesn't for you, he is at: http://fivestringguitar.blogspot.com/
Thanks, Bobbie, I will pay a visit.
It's a touching tribute, and though I never knew Janet it is possible to now in the tribute David paid her.
He's touched souls with his tribute.
it is an incredibly beautiful tribute - David always amazes me with his heart and strength and grace
such a touching tribute to his wife & so very sad too. Your stories about your own experiences are pretty amazing Bobbie.
& I also feel for you with your kids telling their stories. I am sure my brothers & I are guilty of doing the same thing on some level. But I can tell you if your kids are anything like my brothers & I, it's probably more mischief than anything else. I also know from your blog you are a very loving person so I am sure it couldn't have been too bad! I like how you wrote about it & what your perspective is though. It's all very interesting.
