This past July, my husband David passed away. His health had been deteriorating this past few years with Parkinson’s/dementia and his last months were complicated with recurrent attacks of pneumonia. Therefore the children and I were prepared for his passing and had experienced many of the stages of grieving as he gradually lost his physical and cognitive faculties.
