Hugs and prayers your way. May you find comfort knowing our hearts are broken with you.

A young man that my son was on the wrestling team with in high school just passed away unexpectedly at the age of 29 from what they think was a seizure. Husband's dad was 52 and my mom was 55 when they died. You truly have no idea when your time will be up and as other's have said live each day fully. I changed my "live, laugh and love" signature but still believe that every day.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

So sorry for your loss - wrap yourself in all the wonderful memories you clearly made :-) But you also have a wealth of knowledge that can be shared with new members, so I hope you'll wander back to visit from time to time?

MY DW died 3 weeks ago, unexpected she was 66, not over weight, active, did not smoke or drink, probable heart attck

last 15 years, probably 25, MH 3K plus trips, four times to Europe, Long Vacations with grand daughter. took Amtrak to DC up to Boston flew home

I am sure with the time off work, and the travel cost was probably 250K

This is my message, had we not done any of that, I would be 250k richer but she would still be dead.

Take it for what it is worth, but you pay cash folks, wait to retire to do anything folks, works great until a black swan comes along. White swans you can plan for, not he black ones

I wish you all a long life and happy travels

so long

I am sorry for your loss.

Me typing those words will not make it any easier.

Don't be in a hurry to leave the forum, or to give up on your own life! Is that what your wife would have wanted ? You are in a lot of pain now and I can't make that easier. No one can. I wish that I could.

Just don't give up on your own life. There is a lot of pain in your post and I am worried about you.

My wife died 3 weeks ago. We have been RV'ing for about 25 years. She was in bad shape from MS but the RV was the only way I could get her out and about. She absolutely enjoyed that I could take her away from the house and do things with her.

I miss her very much. I'm still coming to the RV forums because I'm not sure if I will keep RVing or not. Tough decision but once you have traveled in a class A, it's hard to go back to traveling like everyone else.

We sold our RV before she died because it was a handicap rigged unit and I knew she couldn't use it anymore. I may take the proceeds and buy another smaller unit.

My condolences to you. I keep preaching that to DH who is 75 and I am 64. Our world will continue to get smaller if we stop and wait on it and there will be a time when the "black swan" will appear. I am glad you got to enjoy your trips prior to the unexpected death of your spouse. Soo sorry!

So sorry for the loss of your first officer. Can't imagine life without mine. Great that you got out & did some travelling. Our MO is the same. We get to go around the block of life only once. Make it as big a block as possible.

So sad to loose someone at such an early age
Not sure if I could put a price tag on something like that
Looks like you're money ahead from here on out
good luck
