When Donna, passed away, Den fell into a deep depressive state. Us living in Utah while he lives in California, we could only guess that things were not going very well. We had no idea. Over the phone, he'd mentioned that he had some health problems and was lonely but... We had a strong feeling that we needed to see him to really know what was going on, especially since he's not one to complain.

It didn't take Erik and I long to decide that we need to move our family of five here to take care of him.
Our dad literally gave his good health to care for his wife until her dying day. It's time we took care of him!
