Roy’s Article in the Huffington Post!

I am so thrilled with this! Roy has a beautiful article up for Valentine’s Day in Huffpost: My Girlfriend Is Dying Of Terminal Cancer, But Here’s Why I Still Feel Lucky!

I know I am the lucky one to have someone like Roy accompanying me at the end of my life’s journey. Not many men could do this with such grace and generosity, not to mention patience and understanding. It’s not easy and there’s no guidebook (not yet, at least: he’s writing one now!), but we are figuring it out as we go. I have so much to be grateful for: Roy is one of the sweetest gifts!

See Roy’s blog for more of his always moving writing: And sometimes it goes the other way.

    It was an open look in to the situation. I agree with the part that one needs love to go through it. Susan looks lovely in the picture. All the best for you both.

    A deeply moving article, Susan; thanks for sharing the link.
    I’ve just finished “Being with Dying” by Joan Halifax. I thought maybe you and Roy might find it useful; it’s a wise book about not just dying consciously (as you obviously are) but living consciously, and might be of special value in its particulars.

  6. Heart warming, to know that there is love like this. Living in the present instead of worrying about the future certainly makes a difference doesn’t it? Thank you both for sharing your story.

    A deep bow to you Roy for this fine and important piece – may it reach all who are experiencing the dying of someone they love, to guide them in the possibilities if they open their hearts. May your heart continue to break open without end.
