    Very Sad News

    I am very sad to report that Andy Henderson's (CaptA) significant other, whom he loved very much, Debbie Rogers, passed away Monday, July 11 in his arms. She had been battling cancer for some time, and finally lost her battle. Andy is retired from Asheville Fire, having attained the rank of Captain. Debbie had attended all the Mid Winter Blahs Picnic with Andy, and was well known to Western North Carolina Woodworkers. I want to wish my deepest condolences and prayers for Andy on his grievous loss. I know he would welcome a show of support on all our parts, because right now and for some time to come, he will be suffering from this, one of the greatest losses of his life.
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.

    I'll add my condolences and ask if there is anything we can do as a group to help?

    Re: Very Sad News

    Andy, I do not know you or Debbie but I have some experience, unfortunately, with this sort of loss. In 2008 my wife of almost 29 years died from a stroke. I just prayed for you and will work to remember to continue to do so. At least in my case, time does not heal this but it does make the pain less of an intrusion into everyday activities.
