Signing off for awhile

My wonderful wife of 43 years, Jeanine, has finished her time in this world, and begun her eternal life in heaven with Jesus Christ.
Lewy body dementia is a disease that destroys the brain in a slow fade out, shutting down gradually until life is no longer supported. Like a computer deleting programs one after another.
Through it all, she never lost her sweet, affectionate, gentle, quiet, loving spirit.
Near the end, she still recognized me, but could no longer speak.
I am thankful to God for the 43 years we had together.
The antique car hobby is not quite the same for me without her to share it.
I need to sign off the air waves for awhile.

Condolences Rob - take care of yourself.

My deepest condolences.

I am very sorry to hear your sad news. Please accept my condolences.

So sad Rob look after yourself.

I am very sorry to hear your sad news. I had not heard of Lewy body dementia until just two weeks ago when a friend and ex-work college died of it and he only in his early sixties. Please accept my condolences. You will be in my thoughts.

Thanks for all the kind words, friends.
I’m sad to lose her, and because of the virus we can’t even have a memorial service for her, with most of her friends still afraid to come to church yet.
So I put together a memorial web site.


And here is a picture of her at a Jaguar picnic.

She sometimes drove the XJ12 and S-Type, but her favorite was the Mark V. She even tried to drive it once, just around in a parking lot where I could switch off the ignition key if she got into difficulty with the clutch pedal.

Rob,
Glad to see you back. I hope you spend more time concentrating on all of your wonderful memories then on your loss.
Easy words to say but are meant to help.

Thank you, and yes, Jeanine trying to drive the Mark V is one of those wonderful memories.
