JACK N. HADLAND
02-01-47 to 01-15-12
This is a poem about my life with my husband, who went unexpectedly into the hospital 01-06-12.
El Cobre del Sol was our first sight, with two girlfriends I went that night, my heart skipped some beats that night. It was the beginning of May that we would date. We later married in Reno and then went to El Dorado Casino.
Months, years, a lifetime it felt. As we were retired, together we went. Spending our time at the swimming pool & vacation trips to WA, CA & HI, too. Jack loved riding on the catamaran to Diamond Head, I did too.
Mistakes and arguments came and went, we made it through them all and nights together we spent.
When I was told in ICU, there was nothing more they could do, I knew you could not stay. It was only 9 days tragedy struck. I watched my loved one die, I felt I had no luck. How could you be gone?
I'm not that strong, since you have been gone. I sit and cry all night long. But during the day I pretend to be OK. Then I can go home and cry all over again. Our lives are never the same, but at least now, you are not in pain.
I miss you ... but you will live in my heart forever.
