My Wife lost her battle with Cancer today at 3:30 PM. She died in my arms just  after I whispered it was OK to go to sleep.They took her away in a beautiful White  Hearse .We've been together at work and at play, side by side for almost 35 years.It's a very empty world right now.

I just saw your post today Roger. I am sorry to hear about your wife's passing. Words cannot truly express your loss, but please accept my deepest condolences and take refuge in the love of your family and friends. Take care, Keni Lee

Roger, thanks for posting here.  I think I understand why you did so. 

A brief prayer for her and you and may God bless.  I hope you see her again in a better world.  Count your blessings and the good times.  You had each other longer than many folks do.
