Allan

My first husband, Allan, father of my daughters, Anne and Sara,  shown here very recently, with his present wife, Susie, died today at noon time. Complex emotions and sadness are filling my heart. Allan lived in Tampa, FL, not too far from Anne. It was a massive brain hemorrhage.  Anne got the call on Tuesday night. He lasted on life support today until Sara could get there to say her good-byes, along with half-sisters, Missy and Sharyn. Allan and I loved each other through all the years, even though we went our own ways after 4 years of marriage. We shared wonderful children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, and a lot of respect for each other.

All my love and thoughts are with my girls, and all of Allan's extended family who loved him very much. 

I'll be back to write more (on my lovely new Toshiba Satellite laptop) as soon as I can rest my mind a bit. Sickness still has a grip on me, but I've nearly made it through the week at work!

Love with all your heart and soul - you never know........I'll miss knowing you are there, Major, and my eyes will always smile for you. I forgive you now for making me go to the demolition derby at Norwood Arena on our wedding night. You did make up for it by taking me to Niagara Falls. Those happy times still glow in my heart.

I would/will feel the same way when my first husband dies. We were high school sweethearts and did have some good years and lots of fun memories together. I'm sorry Marcia--it is sad for you. I think even after a divorce--they are the father of our children and special in our heart for that very reason.

My heart goes out to you and to Allen's extended family. Youth's love never dies. When my friend's husband's first wife died, he sobbed.

They hold our memories of happy times and baby-children. A huge loss for you and your girls.

An old man came to me a few years back. He had been married 3 times. His first wife died. He was in bits.

Oh, Marcia. This is so sad to read. I'm sure you were very shocked and quite saddened by this news. I respect so much how you two were able to build a friendship that allowed for your children to enjoy you both. Blessings and condolences to you and your daughters and to all the family.

I'm so glad you are better. Don't do too much.
