LATER THAN YOU THINK

The SO died suddenly without warning in her sleep from heart failure.

Possibly - post Katrina loss and the stress of her recent colon cancer operation - which I thought was successful.

1. eleven - two months short of twelve years in ER.

2. While not abandoning this forum - my post count will be reduced for a while.

No heh heh heh this time.

She died with 'money on the table' and we had a number of plans for our new location.

Soooo - don't wait too long to ER.

P.S. - Cremation and an LA style wake on Lake Ponchartrain next year in good weather - depending on how many friends we can find scattered hither and yon.
