    What an eloquent way to state what creeps into all of our thoughts as we and our partners age. And you and I ( and many others) know what care taking involves. It’s an honor and a privilege, side by side an exhausting and bittersweet, journey.

    So beautifully written. I am reading this with tears in my eyes, for the joy you and Bernie bring to life, and because we know we also will be facing that time. So the answer is to carpe every single diem left to us!

    Linda, you call attention to something that all couples or friends lucky enough to find love must face. You and Bernie give me hope that love is possible and I thank you both for that!

    I’ve been there, done that. It’s exhausting, stressful, pull-your-hair-out crazy feeling. But so worth it. Just file away the happy times to remember later and ease the pain.

    BERNIE IS A JEWEL (and, Yes, I’m shouting) — he’ll probably live to be one-hundred and three! No one knows and appreciates the care partner my Chris is to me more than I do!
