    One of the reasons that I have returned to modeling is that I now have the time to do it. A few of you are aware that it is because my wife is in the final stages of advanced M.S. at 53 years old. I have been her fulltime caregiver for about a year now. Yesterday she took a turn for the worse and she is totally unresponsive and not expected to live much longer. She has been ready to go for quite some time and we said our goodbyes a while ago. Please keep her in your thoughts the next few days.

    Hawkeye2, you have my deepest and most sincere sympathy. know that my wife of 30 years died 9 years ago. if you have hospice in your area they have counseling available. it saved my life. hang in there, the grief never goes away but it becomes bearable in time

    Thanks for the thoughts and prayers everyone.

    We have been involved with hospice care for about 4 months now. Yes, they have been a big help.

    My wife's lost both her parents since we got married, and my Dad passed away last Memorial Day weekend. You and your family are in our prayers, bro, and remember that there's always a spot reserved here for you, if you need to do some venting! Screw that machismo keep-it-all-inside BS.

    My wife Ann passed away at 7:30 this evening. She went very peacefully.

    Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

    I know it's a rather small thing to say at this point, but my modelling will go on as it is such a nice comforting thing for me to do. I will be having a few breaks in the work though as I plan to see a bit of the U.S. before I go back to work. I've never really been out of the midwest and I plan on a few trips to some air museums.

    Hawkeye, my most sincerest sympathies. I, too, very recently lost a family member and know that feeling of loss but nothing I can say I think would ease the hurt. Stay positive and we are all here for you. This forum is more than words on a screen - we can listen and share. I've used it for that the last month and it helps. Praying that all works out for you.

    Chris

    I'm really sorry to hear this Andy, and was shocked when I got to Page Two, and saw your latest post!
    I know words don't really help or convey what one thinks or feels, but I do know what it's like at the moment.
    I lost a girlfriend to cancer almost four years ago, and my father exactly a year later. With Dad, it was sort of expected due to age, but the girl was only 26, and I wished I had been taken instead of her, with her life yet to live.
    Keep strong mate, and remember we are all here if you need us.
