Dear Forum Family and Friends,

I wish to share with you that Bill "Jetguy" lost the love of his life.  Jan passed away on Tuesday. 

I know he's going to need our extra support system even more now.  HealingWell is truly that... Helping us to heal well in all areas.

Dear Jetguy and Loved Ones,

 

A smile, a touch, a gentle laugh remembered,

   a voice softly whispered in the wind…

 

May the memories held deep within your heart

     help to soothe your spirit at this time.

 

Keeping our wings around you during this time. 

Lean on your friends for strength, and

always remember how much you are cared about.

Jetguy,

I am in total shock. As long as I have known you, you have spoken nothing but lovely things to say about your wife. I know you were a couple deeply in love. My heart goes out to you, I can not comprehend the level of loss you must be feeling.

We are all here for you at HW, we are you brothers, your sisters, and your friends.

Will remember you in deep prayer this day.

Thank all of you for your kind words and thoughts.  I must say that this is an incredibly painful experience.  I had thought that the death of my wife would be similar to my parents, or my brother.  I can tell you that it is an order of magnitude worse.  My sorrow is intense.
 
It is my good fortune to have quality people and organizations in my life.  My chief pilot took another pilot off the schedule to organize things and be available to me full time.  My daughter's boss flew an employee in from out of town to be with her and help out around the house.  He is catering our celebration of Jan's life on Saturday.  Friends are feeding us through next Wednesday and longer if we wish.  I am completely off the flying schedule and have been since she was hospitalized on the third of January.
 
According to young Will, Nana was his 'best girl'.  Mine too.  She had an incredible capacity for love.  Her joy in life was doing things for others.  Especially for me and Will.  She was the finest person I have ever known.  I am sick in my heart.

Bill,

Thanks for sharing in the height of your grief. As long as I have known you, you have only spoken glowing things of your wife and your marriage, I have always respected that. If it were to happen to me, not sure I could make it. If you ever want to talk by phone, just e-mail me a number.

May you find strength and beauty during this darkest moment, bless you, brother.

Bill/Jetguy.

I haven't been around too much here, don't really need it ..yet, but here is a little thing I found a few years ago and added a little to it...don't know who wrote it , but I've found it strangely comforting at times like these:

The only way around these things is through them. So if you bury your dead, bring a shovel, if you burn them, warm to the fire. Look into whatever riddance you consign them to. Lend a hand, or stand and weep, or watch and wonder. But stay until it is over, until it's done.
Keep the names of your dead alive among your people. You get one father, one mother, one true love, one life and a couple of good dogs if you are lucky.. There's no easy way to do this. So do it right: weep, laugh, watch, pray, love, live, give thanks and praise; comfort, mend, honor, and remember.
