Husband's Pants on the Chair

Dear Dr. Laura,
I was listening to your program as I was making a 500 mile drive by myself to visit my son who is in the USCG station in Oregon. You were talking to a woman who was complaining about her husband leaving his pants on the chair, not picking up after himself. What I would give to clean up after my husband. You see we were married 35 years. In March of 2010 he was diagnosed with lung cancer that had already spread to his bones. He fought for 5 nightmarish months, dying August 18, 2010. He wasn't perfect either, neither am I, but we had a great marriage.
I was crying as I was driving. Saying what you said before You did.

Appreciate every minute with each other because you never know what tomorrow will bring. I saved some of his shirts, I'm going to make a quilt out of them to keep me warm.
God Bless you Dr. Laura you made the long drive bearable.
