Tom, I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what it must be like. The thought of losing my wife is my greatest fear.

Your decency comes across in your posts, and when dealing with you. What I believe is that your wife was lucky to have the time she did with you.

Tom,
I join the others in grief for your loss. Maybe this poem by Henry Van Dyke will bring you a little comfort, as it has for me in such times:

Gone From My Sight

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says, "There, she is gone."

Gone where?

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me -- not in her.

And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone,"
there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"

And that is dying...
