(89,154 posts)I had a bad feeling when he announced that she was in the hospital. I think she had an illness on top of it all that he mentioned last year, maybe-?

I'm so sorry to hear that she is gone, he loved her very much, you could tell from his stories... and the boys. At least they are not young children at this point and he has a tight relationship with them, makes me feel that they will take care of each other through this.

Thank you for posting.

#### elleng

We're here when you're ready.

his post about her only 4 days ago:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/10181735262

just an aside: both of my parents died on 23 November, Dad in 1968, Mom in 1980. rhymes of nature.

I am in tears, I love reading his posts and this is a huge blow.

#### elleng

(133,391 posts)'she was born 1968 on thanksgiving day,' and the family was meeting elsewhere in PA for the holiday.

#### barbtries

(29,021 posts)i think of her boys and their tender ages it just makes me cry. I was 13 when my dad died, my younger brother was 14. That year we buried him the day before Thanksgiving. Next year Thanksgiving will be on the anniversary of her death.

I just realized: she was born the year my father died, just 5 days later. My niece was born on the 27th. My oldest brother was with us in CA getting ready for the funeral and his wife was in AZ giving birth to his youngest daughter.

this is so sad.

#### elleng

(133,391 posts)My Dad's mother died in '18, during the 'pandemic,' my mother died in her 30s (I was young, my kid brother was younger,) and it's ALL sad.

#### barbtries

(29,021 posts)when it's someone who is young, when it's a surprise (I know she wasn't well but really no clue that this might happen), etc. I never get this emotional when someone who has had a full long life passes away before any of their children, for instance.

i looked forward to reading his posts all the time. He just seems like a great guy with a great family, and I am so sad for them all.

(613 posts)When you are old and gray and full of sleep,

And nodding by the fire, take down this book,

And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,

And loved your beauty with love false and true,

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,

And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,

Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled

And paced upon the mountains overhead

And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

William Butler Yeats

Be gentle when you tell the pups what they already know.

#### Silver Gaia

(4,632 posts)I read the earlier post about your wife being in the hospital and was touched by how you described the dogs waiting and watching for her.

I don't know you. You don't know me. But I do know how much you loved her. It was there in the warm and affectionate way you wrote about her. It touched my heart.

And now I sit here typing this to someone I've never met with tears streaming down my face. Because of love. Because your heart was in everything you wrote about her and I know how much she meant, and still means, to you.

I am so very sorry. May you find peace and comfort somehow, somewhere, somewhen. Blessings to you and yours.
