I woke last night to the sound of thunder

For those who have not heard elsewhere, it is with profound sadness that I pass on the news that Jim, my ex-husband, died last week.

His ribald sense of humor, love of music, deeply ingrained decency, generosity of spirit - there are many things to miss about him. Not a day goes by that I don't see or hear something and automatically say, "I'll have to email Jim and see what he thinks about that."

Please keep Jim's family, especially his mom, in your thoughts. I could not have asked for better in-laws, and we will always be family.

I bid a reluctant farewell to the only man who could strut convincingly while pushing a vacuum cleaner.

60 years of cool.

I didn't see this here until now. Still brings up emotions.

Yeah, it still doesn't seem like it could really have happened.
