How Fast Life Can Change

For many of you who do not know, my husband, Dennis died very suddenly last Tuesday morning. He was out digging post holes with his post hole digger behind his tractor. He had already done probably 25 or so in the weeks before & although the ground was rocky etc. and hard going he only had 3 more to go to get the fence finished. At some point during the second post hold his pants got caught on the augur. I found him about noon, already gone.

This has been a full week of dealing with grief, making decisions, talking with family, the memorial service etc. For those of you who do not know my first husband died in '87 after a bone marrow transplant. This was Dennis' second marriage also.

His daughter his been here with me, coming early & staying later than everyone. It has been a wonderful time of us growing closer together. I'm praising God for all the good & positive things that have happened over this past week & especially for His presence being felt.

There are many future decisions, but I know that they will be done with God's help. There are so so many people who have done so much this past week. I thank them. The loss of Dennis is great.........and he will be greatly missed by many people, Willie & I the very most.

I will continue to update as time allows.
