The end of May pretty much crushed me. My wife of 36 days short of 30 years died. I had to widthdraw from Art on the Grand, Art on the River and am uncertain if I will be able to participate in Appetite for Art.
I had been her 24/7 caregiver during her nine year battle with cancer. It is hard to be positive and upbeat now. I have to find my new center of gravity. We were friends since 1966 and married since 1988. Our three kids check on me almost daily. I tell them that I am used to being single, we didn’t marry until we were both over forty. The hard part was losing my best friend, mother of our children, and wife all at the same time.
