I wrote this letter last year just after county taxes were due. I have thought long and hard about the subject of this letter and have decided that now may be the time to publish it.
Several years ago I lost my husband to illness. I lost the love of my life as we had been married for 46 years. We were just teenagers when we married. We never really thought about getting old. I always imagined that we would retire together and have a good, long life. It did not work out that way. He fought for years with the illness that was related to the Vietnam War. I lost his income and the pension that he was drawing from the VA related to his illness.
