My apologies to all for  not keeping you up to date concerning my welfare.

I have a new medical practitioner advising me as to my treatment for my Parkinson’s. She has prescribed a larger dose of L-dopa taken at more frequent intervals. This new prescription seems to be working well as I feel much better now.

The new air conditioning is work very well and I have become dependant on it now that summer is here. I am paying less for my electric bill now than when we were using the fans.

I have completed ten weeks of meetings with a group of people that have experienced the recent loss of a loved one. It was a very helpful experience for me. I am glad that I did it. However, I am still having meltdowns when I speak of Patty and our life together. Our 66th wedding anniversary would have been July 27th and I do not know how I will react on that day. I owe her so much for the years she spent at my side. She made it possible for us to live a life filled with joy and happiness. She was the love of my life.

We met when we were eighteen years old and we both became adults together when we began our married life in 1951. We learned together as the years passed and we were fortunate not to have experienced any major catastrophes in the years of our marriage. We were very lucky. We were close in our marriage and we loved each other very much. It has been five months since Patty died and I am slowly coming to terms with the death of my remarkable wife. I will feel her presence at my side for the remainder of my life and will take comfort in the certain knowledge that she loved me as much as I loved her. What more can a man ask of  life than to be loved by an attractive and smart woman like my wife Patty.


I am 89 years old and was married for 66 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoying my life and I try look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity about what my future has in store for me.
