Today June 26, 2013 marks five years since my wife Dawn departed this world. Each year just marks that much longer since I looked into her eyes, or heard her voice in both my ears.

 I've gone through many stages in learning to cope with her loss, one moment that always feels the same was when she actually passed.  I remember her taking  her glasses off for the final time and setting them on her table, seeing her do this I knew it was time.  I held her hand, and surrounded by her parents my mother and her sister Cathy we watched her draw her final breath calling out to her. 

My heart sank as she exhaled and did not draw again, I didn't realize I was rocking the bed, the nurse came over to check her signs and pronounce her death.  I remember that feeling when she passed so clearly, regardless of where I was in my grief cycle.  Missing you Dawn today, and every other day.

Love Max
