On October 18, 2017 I loss my partner of 15 years at my home with Hospice Care. In 2013 he loss his right leg due to vascular problems and in 2014 he loss his left leg. So I became his 24 /7 caregiver. Last summer in June he got double pneumonia and in July he loss his vision in his right eye due to plaque. That's when Hospice Care started. Larry was so strong and inspirational to others and had such a sense of humor. The night before his passing I sat by his bed rubbed his arm and spoke to him all night about all the things we had done and how grateful I was to have him in my life. Even though he had lived in Chicago he really enjoy my yard and the flowers. I miss him so very much. When I first meet Larry I greeted him with a dozen red roses and at his burial his family give me a long stem rose which I have placed by his picture on my mantel. Its so fitting in at good way. It started out with a rose and ended with a rose. Have been going to Hospice Grief support but I still feel so loss and lonely. I also understand that others in this group are hurting as well. And I can so relate to all of you.
