My heart is broken

My husband passed this morning. I was able to be with him as he passed which gave me a lot of comfort. I was able to say goodbye in private.

Today has just been a whirlwind. i dont know when i will post again. my heart is broken and I need to help my kids.

I think that Rina, over at gottalittlespace.blogspot.com is setting up some sort of donation fund through paypal, so contact her if you feel so obliged.

My husband was a wonderful, caring, loving man. And I will miss him and love him forever.
