Well, it’s all over. My Darlin’ Joan left this world this morning just after midnight! She died at home under hospice care. She had been mostly unresponsive for 11 days. She had dealt with Dementia for many years and this end.
She is in much better place! We had been married 63 years and 5 months (actually, 23,167 days)!
Joan & I had 3 kids (Billy Jack, Bobby Joe & Maribeth) and seven grand kids. She has two Brothers(Bill & Tim)& 1 sister, Luvena who all live in her home state of Georgia. Joan went to Harlandale High but graduated from North Highlands High in Sacramento, Calif. She got her BS degree at Texas State University and Taught at Nimitz Middle School and MacArthur High before retiring in 1989. She had many friends and relatives, in-laws, and had a beautiful singing voice ! She will be greatly missed.
I do want to mention My good friend,Tom Preston, who has always been “there”. I don’t know how long this emptiness will last, but my prayers must comfort me. I might add that my daughter, Maribeth has been my strength!
