My wife and life partner of forty years passed away this morning. Norma lived a life filled with lots of love given and received, and many close friends.

The problem is that by the time I took up woodworking we had a house full of furniture. Norma used to say that I should have started this when we were first married and didn't have anything.:)

But, of course, I didn't have the time, space, or money to do woodworking back then.

I did build a few things she wanted, especially a table (http://www.mikes-woodwork.com/ExpandingTable.htm)and chairs for the kitchen, but it was starting to get to the point where, if I made anything else, she was going to throw it out the door.

Mike, I woke up at 5 AM today to check on a roof leak that I discovered yesterday morning. Water had dammed up in a leaf blocked gutter that drained back onto the roof. High wind had blown it up and past the flashing. I was pretty bummed both yesterday and this morning.

After reading of your loss, I am both saddened for you and humbled. Suddenly, I can't begin to imagine how I had let a wet carpet ruin my day.

Thoughts of you and Norma will be with me for some time to come.

Mike Henderson
04-04-2010, 8:41 AM
Thank you all for your kind words. Norma had been ill for quite a long time. At first, the illness was not severely life limiting - she was able to continue to function fairly normally and enjoy her friends and activities. But as time went on, she became much more limited in her activities and needed a lot more help, and there were a lot of painful medical procedures over that time.

I miss her enormously. We "shared" the details of our lives in our conversations. I already find myself wanting to ask her advice about things, or of wanting to just share what I did.

Mike

Mike, don't ever stop asking her advice or telling her what you just did. She's still with you and she hears all your words when you speak to her. I hope you can take some comfort in knowing that.

I'm sorry for your loss.
