“The world lost the most wonderful, kindest, gentlest man ever last night.  Charles and I have been married nearly 62 years and we have known and been girlfriend/boyfriend since we were 10 years old.  My heart is shattered and I shall forever miss him…but he is free from the insidious disease of Alzheimer’s and for that I am grateful.  So goodbye, sweet husband,  till we meet again.”
