"Till death do us part" became a reality of my life, after almost 35 years with Rick - he earned his "home" April 2015.

My heart broken, my life shattered.

The ashes of grief overwhelming and suffocating.

But one breath at a time.

One moment.

One memory.

And here I am today.

Learning to breathe and to live - without him.

Searching for the smiles each day.

I grew up with Rick ... it is now time for me to grow old.

I love you Rick - miss you like crazy.

I wrote this article in 2019.

Fight Like a Girl published it on their website. 

It's now been a few years since I had uterine cancer.

Still a Survivor . . .
