    My thoughts are with you and your family. We lost my mother-in-law to cancer on the same date, 4 years ago. She also passed peacefully at home, with family around her. I don't know where your beliefs lie, but I like to visualize Jean welcoming Don to the next existence, pain-free and strong again.

    Whatever 'heaven' is, there must be bikes there, right?

    Condolences to you and your family Mimi. But so wonderful that Don passed surrounded by love.
    It's all about the journey (my reason for riding slower)

    Mimi, it's an honor for you to share with us his final moments; surrounded by music and love. Tailwinds of the heart to Don, you, your sons, and your families.

    PS: Medical school, very cool. Even as his life ended, he still goes on to help others. Awesome.

    Thank you for sharing your story of Donald's last day Mimi. I admire the strength and positive outlook that you both display.

    I'm sure there's also JAM in heaven now. (Can we have the recipe of his plum butter I read about?)

    Sending much love your way.

    Grog, I am sorry to inform you that he doesn't have a recipe for plum butter! you just cook plums, add sugar to taste, and cook until it thickens!!

    She says she's fixing it...think she used some music that was copyrighted and that got it blocked.

I have loved and been loved;I have been given much and I have given something in return...Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and an adventure."

    Your post was so touching about the end of life for your Don. I'm sorry for your loss and hope all the love you're receiving from this special board helps.
