My Dear One is Gone
My heart is so heavy with grief today. Yesterday morning I slept a little late. We were expecting the Vet at 8a.m. and I jumped up and called to Alan. No answer. Went to the bathroom and looked out the window. The lights were not on in the barn. I went into the living room and there he was, dead in the recliner, having had a heart attack in the night. It is such a shock, and I am somewhat numb, but so grateful for my community of friends and loved ones who have embraced me. I looked outside yesterday and there was a City worker and about a dozen kids cleaning my yard of all the storm waste that has been there for a couple of weeks. Another friend brought a crockpot of soup, and another vacuumed and washed my kitchen floor. My nieces brought my son Chad up yesterday, and my son Michael and DIL and SIL arrived today. So much to do. I feel like I have lead in my body. You won't be hearing from me for awhile. I have so many decisions to make. Thanks to all of you for your wonderful comments and support on Facebook.
