As much as I have prepared for this day, I find myself stunned and at a loss for adequate words. My heart has been completely shattered as I witnessed my love, my husband, my best friend, and father of my children take his last breaths last night.
My sorrow is heavy and crushing. But my gratitude for his love is endless. I am proud of the man he was, and I am proud to have been his wife for the last 22 years. I am even proud to now be his widow, even though the title is foreign to me and does not feel right. I will love him forever, and I know he will always be with me through the many memories we made together and through our three wonderful boys.
Neal is now free of his pain and suffering … and ours has begun. Please keep Ben, Jeremy and Matthew in your hearts as they adjust to a new life without their beloved dad.
