At 10:15 on the evening of June 16th, 2014, I stood in the same room where just 24 hours earlier Saralyn, my wife and best friend for over 40 years, had said, "This is the happiest moment of my entire life." Now I was there, but this time she was not with me, she had just died in my arms, and she was never coming back. In an instant, literally in one heartbeat, my life was changed forever. Thus, began a journey where I walked through the most intense times of sadness I had ever known. There were moments when the crushing heaviness of sorrow made it almost impossible to breathe. The fire and sting of pain made me wonder if I'd survive. Although I was surrounded by darkness, one thing I knew for sure.....I was not alone.
