During our 6 year ALS journey, I would often think that I was a widow-in-training. This is because as ALS would take Tom’s physical ability, I would assume more and more responsibilities for our lives. I learned how to handle these new responsibilities with Tom’s guidance. So now, as I journey through this life as a widow, I have the comfort knowing that Tom guided me, he prepared me for a time when he would no longer be here physically. It’s been one month since since he passed, but I still have him guiding me. In my heart, I hear his voice telling me “You got this”.
