It’s Weird When Your Ex-Husband Dies

I received a letter on Friday from the Probate Court that my ex-husband died. We’ve been divorced since 1999 but we were friends. It was a shock and why am I included in this official letter? I haven’t seen him in over 20 years.

I’m choosing to remember all the good memories we made and the joy I felt. 

Our first:

First New Years’ Eve party

First Dive in Cozumel

Big shark encounter

Traveling the World

There were many more. On my first trip to Cozumel, the electricity went out right after I was heading to the shower. First I had to find someone with towels, I went back to the room ready to get all the salt off of me. We had to put a small flashlight on a beam to take a shower. This is not the Ritz type of country.


This was an annual event for Toys for Tots where thousands of bikers come together to ride across town to the center where the toys are collected by the Marines. We bought a big white teddy bear and tied it to the back of my seat. It was my first time attending and it was a blast. You can see by the smile on my face. 

This song is appropriate for the occasion.

 Born To Be Wild

We spent 13 years together and shared a lifetime of memories. He was a good man. 

I pray you did not suffer, and that someone was always at your side. 

You’ve joined your father and grandparents in Heaven, I know it will be a big occasion.
