After 29 wonderful years, my soul mate went home September 30, 2009 at 12:35 p.m. He fought lung cancer for almost 2 years, stage 3. I miss him more than words can say. I want him back, but when I think of the suffering and pain he went through, I thank the Lord for carrying him gently home. I know he is watching down over me. I don't know why but I have never really cried since the day he passed. His memorial is set for this Saturday. Maybe after it's all over, I will grieve.
