My husband of 22 yrs. died of colon cancer in 2007 at 48. I met a firefighter the following year who made me laugh and have fun again. I commend you in thanking them, they are taken for granted everyday, for what is their job, and livelyhood. I thank you for making me get out of bed when that was the last thing I wanted to do, and my new husband for making me laugh and enjoy life again.
