What beautiful words you wrote! I am so sorry for your loss, and I pray that the memories you have of her will bring you comfort now and in the future. I don't know your faith beliefs, but I do believe we will be reunited with our loved ones after this life is over. You will be in my prayers this weekend.

Thank you all for such heartfelt responses and encouragement................It is inspiring to see how much care this board has for its members in times of need.

In means a great deal to me........ more than you could ever know what reading these responses with their compassion and the advice they bring to those difficult steps I will taking through the next days, months and years.

If any of you want to PM me I would be glad to share a pictorial tribute I did for Lori that I sent out to family, friends and loved ones who knew her..............in a way it was therapeutic for me to create that and it gave me something to do during one of my recent sleepless nights.

I may take the advise of one poster and take a break from the news of the world...........and posting in general for a week or two to seek company and assurance from others for the immediate future just to come to grips and deal with everything.

I'll tell you though............imagine of you woke up tomorrow the US didn't exist at all.............it would be like..........where am I, what do I do?................that's what things feel like at this moment for me......................

I'll continue to take one day at a time..........eating right and exercise (my understanding that it is good in times like this to do that) as I always do...........and continue my work one day at a time..........

Gosh I can't tell you awful a disorder like ALS is......................sorry for the rambling.......I'm just trying to deal with everything.

Perhaps its an overstatement of the obvious but it's worth me telling all of you...................if you do have someone in your life that is special make sure you let them know that every day in some way or some manner..............forgive and forget with any issues in a sincere and as prompt manner as possible..........and Good Lord don't take any of it for granted............right now I'd give a kingdom's ransom just to look into Lori's eyes and hear her voice one more time.............

Blessings to all...............

Some of you may know or recall me talking about my girl friend of 14 years Lori..............who developed ALS after about 9 years into our relationship.

In the recent months it has progressed quickly and today 7-31-20 she passed away in the nursing home she was at...........I saw her the week before and two days ago by special permission of the home.

We met in 2006 when I was 52 and she was 48.......and instantly knew we should be together........it took many years for us to work out our financial situations to the point where we could get married and just about that time is when the ALS appeared as a slight limp in her walk......at that point I dedicated the rest of her remaining days to helping as much as a could until she had to go to a nursing home.........she was never bitter........always wonderful, caring and loving to me and everyone she met until the end.

She once told me that if she could live one year over again it would be the first year we met, I said even over the years of having children?..............she said yes I meant that much to her...........

The last time I saw her she would still light up at my voice and was still aware of our life and love.....My final words to her were....."When I think about you it makes me glad I was born"...........she smiled and mumbled "wonderful" and then closed her eyes and we said our final goodbye that way........

......as sweet and decent of a person as she was stunningly beautiful.......... she will be cremated and her children and I will receive some of those ashes.........I will also get a lock of her hair she wanted me to have...........and that will go with me to my grave someday with some other artifacts I have from her.

So now the day I dreaded and feared has come and she's gone............and I'm heart broken beyond belief right now and will miss her immensely for the rest of my life.

Thank you for your time everyone.........and may the rest of your days be many and joyous with the time you have left on Earth.
Prayers sent..

The pain is indescribable. It doesn't end. But you will start to have moments when it doesn't take your breath away. A moment of relief here and there. Those moments will get longer and more frequent.

Thank you for giving us a glimpse of your sweet and caring wife. The time will come when you will be united together with her again. God put Lori into your life for a reason, and he will return you to her when the time is right. She is watching over you now, as you continue here on earth finishing the work that God has planned for you. May God comfort you and surround you with his love during these very difficult times; Carry on with kindness and compassion for others as Lori did in honor of her memory.

What a beautiful love story. The only consolation I can give is, you and she will be together again on the other side of life. Bless you.
 
Until you are together again may you feel her touch in the breeze, her whisper on the moonlight and her smile with sun's warmth. Peace upon you and my sincere condolences.

I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like you both shared a very special love. Not many people are blessed with this. I pray God helps you while you are going through this grief. Just get through one day or moment at a time.
