    Nice to hear from you again, Mary. I hope you and the kids are doing well!

    In my work with PanCan.org, I meet many widows and widowers that try to raise awareness. At one dinner, they were talking about their late husbands/wives and their new spouses, then stopped suddenly to look at me. I guess I had some look on my face and they asked me if I was okay and if the conversation bothered me at all. I say, no, I was just hopeful that someday my wife would be able to move on and recover as well as they seemed to. A wish that I'm certain is shared by most patients...
