It is not yet light outside and the hour is early; not even a bird can be heard or seen. I awoke with one person on my mind and it is with great sadness I sit here writing this morning. Unfortunately yesterday, someone I knew personally, who bravely battled Parkinson's for some years, passed away. It doesn't matter what age a person is, it's always too soon to lose a loved one and our thoughts and prayers are with his dear wife, who lovingly cared for him, and his family and friends. My husband and I send our deepest condolences to the family and hope that they are given grace and strength during this difficult and sad time.
If you are reading my blog, you may suffer from Parkinson's, are a caregiver, or live with another chronic illness. Please join me in a moment of silence, for although you may not know this man, you no doubt understand the journey he and his family have endured. He was someone's husband, father, brother, friend, and will be sorely missed by those who loved him. May he now rest in peace, and be fondly remembered.
