I remember early 2009 when bea and I went to Tampa fro her stem cell treatment. This was a twofold trip because my dad had just passed away. Bea felt great and did not use her oxygen much, even while cleaning my dad's trailer. Bea was a real work horse !! Later in the year around July 4th holiday she contracted shingles which through her for a loop, health wise. She was always on her oxygen and could not go anywhere without her oxygen. She died peacefully in her sleep (thank God), on August 1st. It is so hard after loving and caring for someone and then there is nothing. My present wife is healthy and does not need my care so I occupy my time golfing, running with Bea always on my mind. I look forward to the day I see my beloved in Heaven.
