I came across this post today that Skipper wrote. I thought it belonged here.

I remember when I wished I had died..It was the day after I lost my wife to breast cancer on 6-25-1994. She meant the world to me and still does.

I missed her so much I couldn't stand it. Someone told me that the darkest days lay ahead of me and i would have terrible days. I would experience a lack of concern for myself. And the world seemed like it is no longer the same color. The colors seem muted or washed out in some strange way.

I play back in my mind what I could have done differently to help her fight cancer. I still feel like there was a solution out there but I just could not find it in time. Perhaps one day I will feel differently about this point.

When my wife died from cancer the world looked different the next morning. Nothing had changed but the world and everything in it looked different to me. It was a world that I didn't want to be in.

I hope the world you're in now is a happy one, Skipper.

Thanks for the earlier post. Skipper was a wonderful guy, and was very good in his leadership skills. Everyone get's some bad times in their life, and Skipper post reminded everyone that we can pull thru the bad times no matter how bad things are at that time. I'm glad that Skipper pull thru this period in his life and was able to have time with his kids.

Skipper is now with his wife again. R.I.P. Skipper. Thanks for your words about the sadest time in your life and the underline message about how we can get thru troubled times.

Your above po is st *completely disrespectful* sorry CC,
but it just IS,
don't want to argue with you and cause further disrespect..
on a memoriam thread..
but I felt it had to be said.
There are times, in life, one has to trust in a fellow
human, and be of good heart.
I've learned that along life's way.
Someone died here, and you reduce it to a circus act,
like 'a rabbit out of a hat'
simply NOT good enough IMO.

I started posting here shortly after my husband died (had a lot of free time on my hands..) he was very kind to me and we talked about these losses...I really liked him. He was genuine and kind (and funny and hot!!)
Thanks for posting this. I was reading through some of his threads, too, and remembering.

yes I remember skip talking about this, I myself had a few short conversations with him on the subject, and it was this raw emotion that he shared with us that I will Always remember about him.
I don't think he realized just how much sharing his story, helped others around him.
unfortunately its too late now to tell him..
so thank u Skip for sharing an experience of life that isn't easy to talk about, for the patient or their loved ones..
ya did a good thing there friend - compassion is truly ur legacy.
