For readers of the link:

NOTE: For those wonderful readers of my posts, I’ll be taking about a two-week break from writing them. My husband of 86 had been weakening and was improving slightly and due to come home from the hospital tomorrow, Tuesday.

Yesterday between 9 am and 10 am the doctor called and told me, “he is no more” which is the Indian term for death.  We gathered at the hospital and his relatives were wonderful. They arranged for the cremation and are helping me with the paperwork necessary.

Our children are flying in and so I’m taking off a couple of weeks from blogging. I’m answering email but not writing blogs.

My contest-winning short story was published this month in CQ Magazine. However, they’ve begun charging for subscriptions. I won’t ask anyone to buy a copy. I’ll certainly understand if you don’t. If you want to buy a subscription, the link is as follows:

Thanking you.  —- Suzanne

  1. Suzanne, you have been terribly supportive all this time of our talents for writing, let us support YOU, now, in this terrible moment of grief. 😥 May your husband’s memory be for a blessing.

    We are here for you and we look forward not only to your stories but to seeing your smiling face and reading your wonderful words to us. May you be comforted and at peace in these days to come.

    “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”

  2. Suzanne, I’m so terribly sorry for you loss. I’m afraid I had no idea about the situation when I replied to your lovely anecdote about him in a comment to me very recently. From what you said about how he let the bird sit on his shoulder, I imagined a man who was both kind and patient – two wonderful qualities in any person.

  3. Thanks, Bun. There’s no need to apologize. You had no idea at the time. I know you could never be unkind. There was nothing wrong with what you said. Even though I miss my husband I still have a sense of humor and remember the funny things. I’ve gone to wakes where family and friends stood around and discussed happy memories. All the best to you and yours. 🙂 — Suzanne


  4. Hi, Sabina. I’m doing fine. I started writing flash fiction again this week and have written for both Sunday Photo Fiction and Friday Fictioneers. My husband’s caregiver has stayed on to help me. My children bath came for visits in February. Thank you for writing an asking. All the best to you and yours. 🙂 — Suzanne
