John: May the Lord bless you and yours with peace and understanding, the position of caretaker is very stressful and may you rebuild your strength and have the knowledge that She is beyond pain and suffering. I wish you fond remembrances and a urge to continue in your activities with the help of your friends here and elsewhere to ease your pain of loss. Now it is time to be aware of your needs of health and spirit and take the time for your grief but also be mindful of your own health. It is a very good start for you to notify us so we can show our concern and high regard we hold for you.
I want to thank you for all you have done for us (and me) by your posts of projects and machining tips even though you were in the midst of your own trials and tribulations. Your imparted knowledge has reached all the corners of the Earth and we do appreciate it!
Thank You----don parker--Portland, Oregon USA
Many of us here on HMEM have been through similar circumstances and feel your pain first hand. Just as you have helped us in many ways over the years we are here to help you through this period of adjustment in any way we can. Sometimes just a friendly voice in the night helps. Let us help you in any way we can.
John, so sad to hear of the passing of Mal. The saddest part of life is the passing of our family and friends. Last week we buried my younger sister, this past Monday marked the day 6 years ago that I held my Dad as he took his last breath.
Your memories will never fade, but time will soften the pain of your loss.
