A couple of weeks before my birthday in 2009 my beloved wife of 12yrs ended her life with my pistol while I was at work. I was at  the time living in Jacksonville,Fl. I had moved there some 26yrs prier and stared my own business remodeling homes on my own ,I was known as the one man gang to my customers. With the unexpected death of my wife and the Lack of any reason why she had done this I was at best devastated, I completed the jobs I had in progress and went home to Indiana my birthplace and stayed through the holidays with my son and his lovely wife in Feb. I returned to Fl. and resumed my business,I loved making other peoples homes their dream, As summer went on I became sicker and sicker finally in Aug. I went to the ER and found I had colon cancer but was too weak to be operated on I spent a long while in the hospital ,and had 4.5ft. of my colon removed along with a grapefruit size cancer. I could not resume my work or support myself when I left the hospital. My son rescued me and took me to his home in Indiana where I stayed at great  burden to his young marriage until I could get my own place again, we now live close to each other but it's really no closer than Fl. as he is busy with his own affairs, the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon. love Shelle
