Today will forever represent a day of immense emotion for me as I reflect our last moments together. As I think of those moments when we said goodbye as you left for the airport, I will forever remember the feeling of your arms around me, holding me and kissing me goodbye. I cherish the moments of our last weekend together as we relaxed and prepared for your upcoming trip and the anticipation of your return to the wedding of your niece. Your life ended that evening 8 years ago and mine was changed in a heartbeat. Life as I knew it stopped/died with your last breath. My heart aches for you as each day dawns. I will visit your grave and dream of what could have been.
Love you Ron forever and always.

February

The Valentine's Day before Ron died (2008) was quiet for us.  But the next day, Ron came home with a dozen orange roses!  They were beautiful and that was my Ron.  He preferred to give when it was least expected.  Once that was established between us (a long time ago), his gifts were quite thoughtful.  I loved him for many things but one of those things was his thoughtfulness.

This will be short but a memory of a January past:

We were living in VA and my birthday was approaching.  My birthday became just another day to me the older I got but this one year, Ron and Caryn had become a bit suspicious in nature.  On the day of my birthday (the 25th) the weather forcast was cold and snow!  Ron was becoming more and more anxious, something he was normally not, so I was totally confused.  Well the snow storm had become much worse than thought so now Ron and Caryn sat me down and confessed they had planned a birthday party for me!  They had to tell me because of the weather they had to cancel the party. 

It was one of the sweetest things Ron had done for my birthday ever.  Even though the party never happened, just knowing that he had made all the plans was such a gift to me.

Birthdays after we moved south had evolved to family dinners at the choice of resturant of the birthday person.

Our final goodbye

Shared by Debbie Hooser on December 27, 2010

On the morning of Ron's death, I left early to go to my daughters to watch my grandson and another little fella.  Ron still had to prepare and pack for his business trip later that morning.

I received a phone call just after arriving at my daughter's apartment.  Ron had left his badge in the vehicle I drove and needed it before he left.  So I packed up the two little guys and we drove back home.  The little fellas were excited to be going to our house to see PaPaw.

When we pulled in the driveway, Ron was still inside finishing his packing and the boys wanted to play in the yard.  I left the boys to play and I went inside to give Ron his badge and help him finish packing.  Shortly after I went in, the boys came running in and wanted PaPaw to come outside to see them climb trees.  The three of them went outside for a short time while I made sure Ron's bag was packed. 

Those of you who know Ron, know he sleeps with a CPAP.  As I was checking his bag, I realized he did not pack the hose for the CPAP that he would need to sleep.  It felt like a crisis diverted when I found it and put it in his bag.

Ron brought the boys inside to finish preparing for his trip and the boys followed him like a shadow, chattering the entire time.  The final stop was the bathroom for a splash of aftershave (that was shared with the little men too).  All were smelling very dashing as we left the house. 

Ron helped me to buckle the boys in the van and when I said goodbye, he and I hugged.  I had a strange feeling with that last hug.  Certainly not bad, actually it was wonderful.   It almost felt like the first time I met Ron and we hugged in my Mom's driveway. 

I know this story is not particularly interesting to anyone, but it is a memory I will carry with me forever.
