My Husband Passed Away

September 12, 1947 - October 30, 2014 It's still hard to believe and hard to write but my husband has died from the illness that no one could identify at the two local hospitals.   It wasn't until late October, after eight months of great pain and suffering, six hospital stays and releases without fixing the pain,  that they gave up and sent him to Tampa General Hospital  There he immediately received treatment to take away the pain.  They knew how to fix his problem of a leaky aorta but it was too late.  He was too weak and did not survive the surgery.   We chose to take him home to Dayton, Ohio and he was buried  with  military honors at the Dayton National Cemetery with family and friends present. We had a wonderful Celebration of Life at my son's home after the graveside services There was lots of joy, laughter and Bill stories told.   A film was shown of his life through pictures and music.  We were married 45 years ago in Concord, Californ
