Till Death Do Us Part

Many of us that are divorced scoff at this notion of "till death to us part"...but this weekend NOC2 ....well for some people it is a reality. In three hours I have to attend a funeral. It will not be a pleasant experience for a variety of reason. I feel so selfish today. This beautiful woman I used to know died of cerival cancer last tuesday. She was someone I had known when I was married and who secretly...ok I admit it, I'm human...I had always envied. Beautiful, together, a handsome husband who adored her, a big house, a bmw, three children who always seemed to be doing something great...all the trappings of a good life...and now in the span of less then three months from diagnosis...she is dead. Quick, sudden, painful....and its over. In the midst of my sadness...I'm still jealous. What? Hold on...you'll see why...even in her death she had someone with her who loved her above all others.....who put aside his life for three months to spend every breath with her. They knew her death was imminent and they didn't waste a moment....On tuesday, it was obvious that she was dying. Everything was shutting down...and her husband...instead of sitting by her bed and crying....crawled into the bed beside her. He held her, talked to her about all of the wonderful times they had together...from the moment he first saw her to their recent vacation....the last thing she heard as she left this life was the voice of the man she loved telling her how much he loved her, how wonderful she had made his life, how he had never had a single moment of regret....the last thing she felt was his arms around her.....she walked into eternity holding the hand of the man she loved. I can only pray that when my time comes there will be someone like that for me. What a love that must have been. My heart breaks for him and the girls. The only thing I can think to do is go to the funeral...to swallow my pride at walking back into that church....the place that I swore I never enter again....and sit beside that ex of mine...because my daughter will want to..and pay my silent respect to a woman who did it right. A very sad NOC2 who needs a hug and has no one around to do so.

I will add my hugs to the ones already offered. As usual, your words strike a chord in me.....and I'm sure your presence there spoke volumes to family that is left behind. Her husband gave her the best gift he possible could have.
