Thank you all for the kind words. I was my wife's caretaker for the 1 1/2 after she was diagnosed so I had plenty of time to grieve. I am in a good place and have moved on with my life.

Rough way to find your way back here, but warm welcome back.

Tell us (or remind us) about yourself. Retired? Thinking about it?

I'm a 61 yo semi-retiree, working on reducing the "semi" part.

Got to be tough losing a spouse, but glad you have focused on the rest of your life. Best of luck to you.

I am 71 and happily retired. My wife and I were together for 35 years. I have 3 children from mty first marriage and 1 from my second. I also have 11 grandchildren, 3 great granddaughters and 1 great grandson due in November.

After my wife passed away I was planning on moving to Prescott, AZ and then fortune smiled on me and I me a wonderful woman. I put my house on the market and the first day 4 people looked at it, 3 mad bids and 1 bought it. In 6 week I closed on the house (hooray for the government rebate). I moved into her house. Between us we have 4 dogs and 7 cats. She is a retired schoolteacher.

Life takes some amazing bounces.

Norm
