For you, PJ, I am deeply saddened, that your devoted partner of many years has been taken away prematurely. I don't know how you two could have packed any more into your future than you have already experienced, but I have no doubt that you would have done so. I know you will have a huge hole in your heart now, my friend, for surely she took some of it with her.
For Merry, while she had so much more to do, so many more gifts to give and events to experience had she not gotten cancer, I know she is celebrating now with Dan and others, now that she is free of pain and restored to health.
Merry's illness has been an admirable, arduous journey for you two. Time now for both of you to rest, PJ.
Love and peace to you, my dearest friend,
