Tribute to Eric
by Bonnie Moss (c) 2008 -05
It's been three months since I said my last farewell to my dearest husband, Eric.
I tried hard, but I could not get myself to write anything about him without tears
rolling down my cheeks and burst into a crying fit. My pain was so deep, I knew
that part of me died with him. Emptiness engulfed me.
I had no idea I'd feel so lost and disoriented without him.I took pride in being a
strong person. I managed to keep my wits taking care of him, knowing that the
end was near.
We talked about death and dying- I was aware of his fear of his mortality. We spent
many restless nights as his will to live kept him going.
We managed to review his life. I had him focus on the blessings that came his
way;and the difference he made in other people's lives in his lifetime. We talked
about the good times,for we shared many.
There is the topic of forgiveness. I promised myself that he will not depart from
this life with heartaches and pain. Yes, he was able to find peace and love.
This is a new beginning. I am back to writing, and I will write more about Eric,
his life, his legacy.This is just the beginning. I want to share with my readers
the life and times of Eric.
