  10. Hearing this, Richard insisted he was going to meet me at the hospital. I had to be there very early in the morning, before his home attendant would show up. He was under doctor's orders not to leave the house without his home attendant. Knowing this, I protested that I was going with my husband and that it would be dangerous for Richard to come out.
  12. Richard cut off my (valid) protests, saying, "NO,I'm coming, because I know how scared you are!" Talk about having the wind taken out of my sails. What could I say to that, but, "Thank you?"
  14. In the second instance I was talking about the alleged spread (by the way: the doctors were wrong)of cancer and was about to say, "the cancer in my leg." Richard picked up on where I was going and just about shouted in my ear, "Don't say it!"
  16. Then there was a silence of several seconds. I think we were both shocked as he had never raised his voice to me and I think he was shocked that he had done so. Finally I said, "All right..I won't say it."
  18. You could call it being "taken in hand" but I don't. I just call those two episodes strong evidence of love and caring. He didn't have to spank me or anything else to get his point across. We could debate whether he was right or not about both those instances, but he stood up for what he believed in.
  20. Kind and supportive don't equal weak and timid. This man stared death in the face a number of times and still kept loving, kept visiting the sick and bereaved..even though he was even sicker...and kept on laughing. He was a little skinny guy who didn't weigh more than 140 lbs. but you bet he had presence. We called him "Mother Teresa."
