    On October 12, 2008 at 10:45 pm My beautiful husband passed away. We were married for almost 24 years, and while they weren't all perfect, I can say without question that this last year was the best. Who would think that cancer could be a gift? As his world became smaller and smaller, mine did too, to the point where there was only our home andour family. Our total focus. We have laughed (and cried )so much together this year! In the end, kidney cancer got his body, but I have the best parts of him to keep. Thinking of him, and you and all of the good things in my life right now. Jean

    My condolences to you and your family. It is a wonderful blessing that Dan is at peace, and I'm praying that you have strength in the days ahead. Your message is a reminder to all of us to treat each day as a Gift and to know what is most important in life.

    I'm so sorry, Jean. :'( I've been thinking about you a lot.

    You are one of the strongest people I know. I admire that you can always look at the glass 1/2 full in even the hardest times. I know you will be ok. You've got a great family, great friends and a great dog to help you heal.

    I really like Dan and I'm glad he has found peace and isn't hurting anymore. Godspeed...
