I can't tell you how bad I feel for you but the 2 of you had many good years together. I'm sure one of them was your baking talents (Chocolate Cake made with duck eggs) for one. I always get a smile on my face when I think of him and the fun we had poking jokes at each other. He was very special. He'll never really be gone if we keep him in our hearts; I sure will.
God Bless You and the kids
