A Widow’s Watch
The title of this year’s Conference, How to Survive the Perfect Storm, ”Shipwrecked”came to me as a result of caring for my ill, now deceased husband of 42 years, Gene. We all have storms in our lives that may come in many forms but it’s always that one storm that we may get caught in that teaches us how strong we really are. No one really knows what it‘s like to see life leak from a loved one like a leaky faucet on a daily basis unless you have had to experience it. That’s what my perfect storm was like. Storms cause damage. Storms rearrange things. Storms are unpredictable. Storms cause casualties. I know.
