A Tribute To My Wife and Carepartner for Parkinson’s Awareness Month-April!

She makes me whole. Her passionate optimism, her zest for life, and her ability to take on most any challenge inspires me right to my core. We are best friends, partners in life, soul mates.

The challenge of Parkinson’s disease creates many a roadblock to disrupt the flow of a loving relationship be it husband and wife or any other relationship. As difficult as it may be, the lines of communication must remain open at all times. Sharing our feelings and thoughts with those closest to us are of the utmost importance for those we care about as well as our own sanity. I am thankful, grateful, and so appreciative for the patience and understanding that my loving wife, Angela gives me. To know her is to truly love her. Today, tell those who make your life better just how much you appreciate them and how grateful you are to have them in your life.
