My husband was 56 years when he took his life. He was diagnosed with ALS and he was losing his battle to walk. He had plans to travel and enjoy is life after he worked and saved for this very day ... never planning a disease would strike.
He lost his will to live the rest of his life in a debilitating way, but he was never thinking of himself. He was thinking about me and what he thought would be too much for me to suffer through. I know he did it for love, but I let him go for love because I couldn't make him stay for me.
I love you Joseph Burdner. I'll see you in heaven.
Your wife, Allison
