  • I wish That This Thread was about a Technical Problem Instead

    My wife made me realize that I am a very lucky guy.

    For many reasons - not the least of which is my Studebaker hobby and all the people connected with it.

    The biggest reason, as any good wife will point out (and they're so often right), is having her as a partner.

    Unfortunately, my partner of 40 years passed away Feb. 19th from a sudden illness. I've posted an obituary in that forum discussion in her honour. She served the Ontario Chapter well for many years.

    I wish that this was a technical problem that I was posting about instead.

    As wonderful life is, it is what it is, and it can bite unexpectedly.

    Hug your family and friends OFTEN and NOW!

        I am so sorry to hear that. My wife passed away after a 20+ year battle with cancer. That was seven years ago, I have since remarried to a wonderful lady but I still think of my late wife often. We had many good times together.

                  A good wife is a friend, a companion, a partner, and a completion.
                  Peace be with you friend.

                    Roger, I extend to you the condolences of all the Aussies on the forum - I have recently found a partner and can't imagine life without Debbie.

                      Roger,
                      After reading your post, at the risk of waking my wife, I went in to our bedroom and gave her a big kiss. I am so sorry for your loss.

                          So sorry for your loss Roger, that has to be one of the most awful things in life. Someone who has been by your side in everything you've done and now she is gone. After the pain eases up, some woman will surely sweep you off your feet when you least expect it.

                            My sympathies for the loss of your wife. My wife and I have been together for 33 years and she has always been supportive of my old car hobby, God bless her.
