Dear Louise. My heart goes out to you in your situation. Having lost my partner to chronic illness 2 years ago, I truly feel for you. Please be free to reach out to me, or others, here on the site. You’ll find friends, support and a lot of warmth and love. And take heart, dear. You are a beautiful kitten at 65. You’ll find many older sisters amongst us, me included.
Prayers, peace and love Carly
