Family Update...



I am down in Miami to give my two oldest sons a little support after their mom (my first wife) passed after having a stroke while fighting her battle with cancer...

It has been a stressful week and a half so far, but they seem to be coping. Fortunately her family and I have remained good friends and I have been welcomed with open arms...

Hard to have a positive outlook when I have lost both my wives to this horrible disease while they were still young... Sometimes I think someone (deity of choice here) is picking the wrong people to move on to the next adventure. They were both such vibrant and strong women and I sometimes feel inadequate in comparison...

Funny thing is, both of my wives became great friends and supported each other through all the family dramas... I know they are both somewhere enjoying each others' company again, sharing a bottle of champagne, keeping an eye out for all their loved ones, and enjoying pain/suffering free existences...

RIP Michele, have a toast with Diana for me!

Sorry for your loss, and the loss to your family.

When my mother died of cancer all i could think was, "AT least she's not sick any more."
That helped a little.

Having lost both my mother and step mother to cancer it is a heavy toll.

And I realized later on that my father was the biggest problem in my life. So I cut off all contact.

Same as everyone above, I am sorry for your family's loss and that you were there for them speaks volumes. I am sure, to them as well.

What an incredible amount of loss and sadness to deal with, for all of you. Life is so precious and so hard at the same time. Stories like yours remind me how important it is to treasure every moment and not get bogged down in pettiness. I am keeping your family, and all who mourn tonight, in my prayers.
