We lost our second son 2 years ago on the operating table during cancer surgery on December 22nd and he was only 29 years old so I definitely know where you are at right now.


I can safely say that what you have went through is got to be the most terrible heart wrenching thing anyone can go through or imagine. Losing a child is beyond painful, and I know you still carry pain every day & always will. My heart goes out to you & your family.
I'm ok, just saddened losing Sheila & worried for Sherrill. Both of them were the most considerate people you could ever meet & would never harm anyone. I doubt they've even had an argument between them. Sheila was heavily involved in her church, and did volunteer work when her health allowed. She was a registered nurse until her health declined to where she had to retire & at times become the cared for. That was extremely hard on her, as she loved helping people so much. Her volunteering helped her feel better mentally & physically.

Thanks all you guys for your concern & friendship.

I think one of my problems with times like this, especially when I am close to those who pass.....I tend to "identify" with their situation and it makes me think about life without my wife Teresa. That is one thing I don't think I could bear, so I need to put that out of my mind and do what I can to help others. I'm gonna make time to go see Sherrill more often now for sure. I'll have to make a lot of time.,...if you think I'm long winded, I can't hardly get a word in when he & I get together.....man can he talk!
Gonna be tough on him, but he'll make it through it. BTW....he's a GT & small engine nut. He's fiddled with engines since old enough to turn a wrench. He's been a small engine mechanic ALL his life, owning his own business for 25 years or so.
I've tried to get him to join GTT, but he never got hold of using a computer. Sheila did any computer stuff in their house. He usually calls me when he needs a part he can't find from his suppliers, and I order it for him.
