Today, Saturday, March 25th, I buried my life-long friend and wife of 57 years. Jacqueline was given a solemn Requiem Mass at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church in Walton, Kentucky and buried in Highland Cemetery in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky.
I am still feeling numb from the events of this past week and I think it is going to take some time to get used to being alone for the first time in my adult life.
I want to thank everyone who sent flowers and prayers and messages of condolence. It enabled me to draw on your strength to help get through this.
You should know that as I promised, the ashes of Jacqueline's devoted service dog Axl were placed inside her casket so they can spend the rest of eternity side by side.
