    Send it to me also, jail RN. We have a lot in common as my my husband died from a "medical incident" also.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm sure that your husband lives on in your sons and through those lives he touched as a nurse.
    God bless!

    Unfortunately, it's not available on-line, and it's only in the California Edition. I'm having it scanned and can e-mail it to anyone who would like to read it.

    I am so very proud of Doug, as he was SO determined, SO passionate, SO driven, and has left some really big shoes for our sons to fill.

    Even though they didn't have him for as long as we would have liked, I tell them "I would rather for you both to have had him as your Dad for the short time that you did, rather than a lifetime of someone else."

    Thanks for all of your love and support. I am humbled.

    I would appreciate the opportunity to read this....

    I don't think it has a title per se. It is the first letter in, The Letters to the Editor section on page 4, then skips over to page 23. It is beautifully written.

    Jail RN, Sharon,

    I am soo sorry for your loss. I am also soooo proud of you and your children for setting up a fund in your husband's memory. What a great way to reward steadfastness and determination. What a great way to remind your children of these important character traits.

    Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
