WaltC Posted April 11, 2006 Report Share Posted April 11, 2006 60th BirthdaySixty years ago today, on April 11th, 1946 Bill and Lorraine had their first child – a beautiful baby girl who they named Jean Marie.This little girl grew up in a home next door to my Grandmother’s place. I visited Granny’s often, but at that age had NO interest in girls so I never noticed little Jeannie.Years later in High School I met this young lady and fell in love with her.We got married in 1964 and later she gave me two wonderful children – one daughter and one son.She was diagnosed with MS about twenty years ago and lived with the progression with very few complaints. In early January last year she was having difficulty swallowing so we went to the ER to see what could be done to help. Naturally, we both thought that the problem was associated with her MS. But we were in for a shock. The diagnosis was terminal cancer and she was given 2 or 3 weeks to live. She survived for 99 days and was lucid until the last two days.She had her last birthday in the Palliative Care unit and died two days later on April 13th , 2005.I miss her so darn much and have great difficulty carrying on this life without her presence.This song is for my Jeannie – my love for her is forever – she will always be in my heart.For Jeannie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
