7.  Jean
            My sister-in-law Jean died yesterday. She and my brother Bill were married for 47 years. They went through all the joys and sorrows of life together and were the center of one another’s worlds. I am thankful for the years they shared.
 Jean fell seven years ago and suffered a severe head injury. She never fully recovered from that injury and she has spent her life since then in a nursing home. Bill has spent each day by her side. There was nowhere else he wanted to be more than with her. They were the center of one another’s world.
 The picture above is on their wedding day. The picture below was taken on our last visit with them in May.

How does one go on after 47 years of loving? So sorry for this loss.
