    So very sorry to hear about your husband, Sad Eyed Lady. What an appalling shock.

    I'm glad you're back. I have never been a hugely prolific poster, but I've been here since we were back on Dave's boards.

    A good friend of mine had something similar happen a year after they retired at 60. Her DH was sleeping on the couch and she heard a thud. He was gone by the time he hit the floor. Such a terrible shock. I think sometimes when someone is sick you get used to the idea about what is to come but no time to adjust when it happens suddenly. She said the only good thing about it was that he did not suffer.

    Despite the trauma and shock of this happening before my eyes, the good thing is I had no questions left unanswered. I think what IF it had happened while he was driving, (he had our recycling loaded up in the car to take to a drop off place that morning); what If I came home and found him then I would have wondered how long he might have lain there, and did he suffer; what IF I had been the one gone somewhere on a trip with friends and it happened while I was gone, then how guilty I would have felt? And on and on and on. To me this was the best possible way, quickly for his sake, and my being able to be there and know how it happened. Horrible as it was.
