Today is going to be a tough one - May 24 would have been my Junior's birthday. His first birthday since his passing in June 2009; another "first" . . they are so hard!! I miss him as much now as I did 11 months ago. I know none of asked to be widows/widowers . . and I have asked "why?" so many times. Life has changed so very much-I am still not accustomed to the new "normal" in my life. God bless each of you. Please keep me in your prayers today.

Bo and had had many misunderstandings about eating. Like you, I would get upset when he wouldn't eat and he would get upset with me because I didn't understand he had no appetite. How I regret these wasted moments. I SHOULD HAVE UNDERSTOOD!

This is Jennifer Preston again something happened while I was typing.I'm going to finish.I wished I hadn't fussed at my Pete.I Just wanted him to eat so bad,Iwanted him to live.He was on dialysis,he had been on dialysis for over 7 years.Then he was in a bad car wreck in Dec..After the car wreck he just started going down hill.After the car wreck we found out he didn't have but 25 percent of his heart left.He was in,and out of the hospital after the wreck,he went to Rehab to get his strength back.He lived a little over 3 weeks after that.Pete went to sleep and didn't wake up.If Ihad of known that was going to be his last day on Earth I wouldn't have left htm for nothing in the world.

Hi this is Jennifer again, I want to thank all who was so kind to write to me.You know it really does help to know there is people out there that knows how it feels to hurt all the time.I know its got to hurt when your seeing your loved one die with cancer,or seeing your loved one go into a coma.I can imagine how you feel.I can understand about getting your affairs inorder.The last day my husband Pete was alive I had a fuss with him,and it stays on my mind all the time.I wanted him to eat so bad,they had put a feeding tube in him. I tryed to feed him some soft food,and he kept spitting it out.I told him if he is going to keep spitting his food out that I I'm going home,and thats what I did is went home,and then they called me after 9PM,and told me he had died.I wished
