About the Book

“Hurry, honey, I see the light. I have to go. Come kiss me bye. Bye, baby, I love you.” These are the last words my husband said to me when he transitioned. It had been a long and tortuous path to enlightenment. He got to see into heaven three weeks before he transitioned. He could not believe the love. We both learned life lessons and grew spiritually.

It had been a long journey for Richard and me, but we both learned lessons of strength, love, forgiveness, and, most importantly, the enlightenment needed to release the fear of death. This is a journal of our love and living with Richard’s Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, prostate cancer, and congestive heart failure. I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, and I am relating the coping mechanisms I used to deal with Richard’s transition and the transition of my mom nine months before Richard.

The journey taken by those who are caregivers is a lonely one at times. Coming to an acceptance is as hard for the caregiver and family and friends as it is for the one you love—accepting the fact that no matter how positive your thoughts, the healing for your loved one may be a healing of his or her soul and not of the body. Then you and your loved one can walk his or her path together. Your support can make your loved one’s transition peaceful and loving. As you help loved ones to lose their fear of dying, you will learn of the beauty and love awaiting them in heaven. This will aid in your healing when your loved ones transition to heaven.

There will be sadness, and tears will flow because they are gone and not physically with you anymore. You can find strength and peace in knowing that the care you gave allowed your loved ones to die with dignity surrounded by love and support and without fear.

About the Author

Sharon is a RN who has witnessed patients transition. I have witness who had transitioned and been resuscitated. Each told the same story about the light and heaven.

Sharon had to retire early because of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The blessing of this was that she took care of her husband for five years after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. He also had Prostate Cancer, Congestive Heart Failure and an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. He had a tortuous journey from diagnosis to enlightenment and transition. They both grew spiritually. Had she not been disabled she would have had to place Richard in a nursing home to transition alone instead of having his family at his bedside.

Sharon now lives in Hampton, TN with her very wonderful, special loving significant other. She considers him to be her gift from the Universe for all her years of caring for her husband. Her wonderful man definitely takes good care of her. She has two wonderful, loving, caring, independent and responsible children. They are and always have been the best gift from the Universe she has ever received. Sharon would like to thank Blake and Brooke for choosing her as their mother. They are both married to their soul mates, who are as wonderful as Blake and Brooke are. Sharon also has her first grandchild Jaxon who she babysit for two days a week. He is the happiest and loving baby. She is continuing her spiritual growth through Healing Touch classes and meditation. Sharon is Certified in Meditation and Pain Assessment and Management. She will soon be Certified in Healthy Aging.
