First shot today
Wow, I am so sorry to hear about your wife. 52 years is an honorable accomplishment and I'm sure it's tough for you right now. As cliché as this might sound, please let me know if there's anything we can do to help. Seriously. Even if it's just a phone call to chat for awhile.
I am sorry to hear the terrible news, but as others have already said...52 years is a long time and I am quite sure there are at least 52000 wonderful memories! Ling term illnesses are tough. I lost my Mother to cancer and that was a whole lot of no fun. However, seeing the struggles end can oddly enough be a relief but never what we want. Stay strong and you are in all of our thoughts.
I, too, offer my sincere condolences.
While I am not the wordsmith that all who commented before me are, I do agree with all of them in wishing you the best and hope that you can work through this difficult time in the best way possible.
I am right down the road from you near Charlotte and wish to express my sincere condolences, I am in my 54th year of marriage and know that it would hard if I lost her.
Sorry for your loss.
