My beloved Snail, my BH, my darling husband, died a week ago today; very suddenly, peacefully, and without pain. We were alone together, thinking of watching a film. He stood up — he fell forward — and that was the end of nearly sixty years of our earthly life side by side.
Now comes the waiting, however long or short it may be, until I fall forward into his arms once more and we stand side by side before our Maker.
A friend sent me this prayer today:
Those who die in grace
go no further from us
and God is very near.
