I am feeling, I suppose more settled, maybe I have reached a level of acceptance. My brothers passing came as such a shock. Bad or damaged hearts were something we had in common. Supposedly, I was in the more serious condition as there is just nothing more they van do. For Robin there was something they could do. A surgical procedure that when completed would totally have him back on his feet, feeling better than he had in years. We all knew his heart was in bad shape but it could be fixed so we were just not all that concerned. July 17th was the day. Turns out to be a day just a little to far in the future.
It has been a few days and I suppose my mind has had the time it needed to recover from that shock. While I am certainly not OK with this whole thing. I have reached a level of acceptance. With that life has become to some degree easier, have been able to let go of some one the stress. That was hitting me hard, bringing on a lot more chest pain. Have used the nitro spray more this past few days than likely the entire previous month.
memorial service is tomorrow. It will be a hard day.
If anyone has time to say an extra prayer it will be appreciated

Robin Nicholas Howdle.
Memorial Service: Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. from the Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Chapel in Dauphin, Manitoba.
Donations: Parkland Humane Society.
Peacefully, Robin Nicholas Howdle, at the age of 58, passed from this world at his home in Dauphin, Manitoba on May 22nd, 2014.
He is survived by his loving wife Debbie of 19 years and sons Trent and Travis. Brothers Bill (Vi), Eric (Lynda), Bryan (Victoria), sister Anita, brothers-in-law Ronald, Keith (Doris), Ross, Daryle and sister-in-law Karen and numerous nieces and nephews.
Robin was born March 5, 1956 in Snow Lake, Manitoba and at a young age moved to Dauphin. In his younger years he was an avid hockey player, at one time playing for the Dauphin Kings and coaching youngsters. Through the years if the Kings were playing you knew he would be there in the stands cheering them on.
His entire working career he worked for the local Ford Dealership. The dealership may have changed owners and names several times, but one of the things that did not change was Robin. His dedication and hard work earned him the respect of co-workers and customers alike.
As the years advanced, Robin became more content with a quiet home life occasionally going fishing or golfing, but especially enjoying time with his sons.
A man with a heart of gold, he will be missed by many.
If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Parkland Humane Society.
Arrangements were entrusted to Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Services with funeral homes in Dauphin, Roblin and Ste. Rose du Lac.
