Hello Everyone,
I know it has been a very long time since I have posted on any of the forums. It has been a nightmare these last three months or so. My husband passed away on July 21 and it was not expected. He was the type who did not always do what the doctor’s said and he did not tell anyone he was having problems with his heart. We were married for 39 years this past May. I am sorting through things and will be for some time. I have never lived alone but really like my condo and the neighborhood so will stay here for the time being. I know there are many new faces on the forums so will spend some time reading some of the posts. Take care all and God bless.

Hi AkiPuppy,
I am so sorry to hear of your husband's passing; I can only imagine how hard this time is for you as I myself have not had to go through this.  Other family members of course, but not my husband.  We haven't met, my name is Wendy - but prefer Wen.
I hope you keep coming back to HW, because you already just how loving and supportive this family is.  Take care and come back soon,
