Oh Terrie,  I am so very sorry.  64 does not seem old to me. I am
78 and my precious husband is 89.  At his advanced age I worry all
the time about losing him.  I am so glad you had hospice.  They are 
such a comfort, and I know they kept your husband comfortable during 
his last few days of life.

You are in my thoughts..........
