27 months ago I lost the love of my life Paul to pancreatic cancer. Paul was a remarkable husband, father and pawpaw. Paul taught school for 34 years and was never sick. In 2005 he retired and was looking forward to spending time traveling and having fun with his grandkids who were his pride and joy. Paul fought a 15 month battle with his cancer and died holding my hand and our daughters hand and looking in the corner of the hospital room with the most beautiful smile on his face...Paul saw where he was going and was happy to go. My life on the other hand has been lonely because of not having him here. I am luck to have my children and grandkids close by. Life will go on i know but I know with friends who have also gone thru this it seems a little easier. I am here for anyone who needs a friend. Thank you for letting me join.
