Re: Assessing Your Partner

I last posted to this thread on the 15th of Aug 2018 and commented that I had recently purchased a trawler because of my wifes frailty. She never got to sail in the boat and on the 7th of March this year she died.
My advice: Whatever you do, boat or no boat, hang onto each other. Daily give each other a squeeze. 65 years is hard to turn loose of.

Re: Assessing Your Partner

Old thread......Scarlet has since bought a 45 foot Lagoon.

Is there any information on how she and her husband are doing?

Sorry to hear of your loss, and wishing you healing. Remember all the good times, they are sustaining.

When it is practical, get out on your boat, and enjoy a beautiful day.

Be well,

Ann

Why not send her a PM and ask?
