This is my husband Herb on his sixty-first birthday, May 27, 2003, a month after he had his sixth stomach surgery. That's me with him at Cajun's Wharf. Our daughter Betty and her family took us out. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer but when they opened him it was not to be found. They went ahead and removed his gall bladder and appendix. One week later they had to go back in as he had an intestinal blockage.

He underwent surgery again January 2005 for an arota by pass down both legs. This time he spent 6 weeks in intensive care. He seemed to be doing good and then Mother's Day of 2006 he started being sick again. He was diagnosed with heart failure June 6, 2006 and passed away on September 8, 2006.

This was us June 1961 at my prom in Orleans, France. He was soooo handsome. My dad had to write a note giving his permission for Herb to take me to the prom since he was a GI and was the driver of my school bus. I think he had more fun than I did that night.
