I started trying to read and catch up on what’s been happening on everyone’s blogs last night, so a few of you friends you may have noticed a quick comment from me. I was grieved to read this morning that Ruth’s dear hubby, Mick, passed away on April 6. His passing was peaceful, with family there to share this precious time with him. Ruth is now dealing with all that has to be done, after faithfully taking care of him for the almost two years since he was diagnosed with cancer.
There’s just no way to put into words the depth of sorrow I feel for her, not so much that Mick’s struggle is over, but that this horrible cancer had to strike such wonderful people to begin with.
She’s sent me several e-postcards of late, just to let me know she was thinking of me. And all that time she was dealing with Mick’s eminent death, which, of course, I did not realize at the time. It just makes her cards that much more precious to know that she was taking that time for me. That’s just the kind of person she is!
