Some of you may be wondering why I have not written contributions here recently.
For some years I have always thought that I must try to provide for my wife who I felt was sure to outlive me, as I was ten years older than she was, she was much more healthy than I, and in any case women lived longer than men, I was sure I would die first.
It has been a great shock to me when after a very short illness my wife died suddenly in June. On the 59th celebration of our wedding anniversary. I lost my most precious possession, my greatest earthly love. At 88 years old I must learn to live on my own. It will not be easy.
There must be many people like me. Pray for the lonely, and the brieved.
