Today is the anniversary. One year ago today, a snowy Friday, Terun Sabre Weed aka GreenMountainBoy02 left us for the great beyond. I wasn't with him when he died--I arrived just minutes too late. Taking the wedding ring off his dead finger was a hard task. He was so proud of it--our rings belonged to my grandparents. I'm so glad his identical twin brother and his family was there to comfort.

I still miss him. Think of him and his love for this community and for me. Thanks to the quilting community for the quilt, and to all of you who have been supportive of me in my year of grief. I don't know what I'd do without you.

Thanks also to our lodge brothers for their moral support, and to the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Luke in Portland, Maine, our spiritual home and the many Nurses and Doctors and Aides who worked so hard to save his life (but in vain) at Maine Medical Centre in Portland, Maine and all our dear friends, most especially Bill in Portland Maine and Common Sense Mainer and our dear friend Stephen. Thanks also to my partner in grief, Dave in Northridge and all of my friends on Daily Kos.

He was the love of my life. I miss him dearly.

Rest in peace my dear one. Terun Sabre Weed (1964-2013)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
