Handsome Partner says goodbye
Handsome Partner, June 27 1932-August 8 2011
HP died peacefully, without a moment's distress or fear, at seven p.m. EST tonight, August 8. We think he held on to have one last birthday with Handsome Son, before he left us to go home.
We have had almost continuous company, with friends, neighbors, hospice people, and feel surrounded by love and help both in real life and in the ether, with you, dear friends. Your cards, flowers, notes and letters have been wonderful.
You can not know how much help you have given all of us for years, and now we have all succeeded in getting him to the end of a long difficult journey, happily and with great peace and acceptance.
After I made one last picture of his hands
I took off his commitment ring, and I'm wearing it next to my own on my ring finger.
