We all have different ways of coping with the death of a spouse or loved one. Some mourn for long periods while others mourn for shorter periods. Some withdraw from life for a time while others “carry on.” In Western society we mourn death most often with crying while in other societies they actually celebrate death. How we cope with death is a cultural construct.
Some people have a very difficult time coping with death while others do not. This all said, I want to inform you that for the time being Dr Peron will remain in Argentina near his wife’s burial. At this point we do not know if or when he will return. He and his wife were very close, inseparable, and he, frankly, is not dealing with the accident or her passing very well. He is with relatives there and will continue to stay with them for the time being. He has lost interest in everything and is only focused on his now deceased spouse.
So for the foreseeable future we (Barb and myself) will keep things here going as he has requested of us. At this point we do not know if this is for the short or long-term but for whatever it is we will carry out his wishes. It is our hope that those who come here will respect his wishes also.
To say that this is a very difficult time would be an understatement. It is a very trying time for everyone.
The blog will remain unchanged and Barb and myself will continue to put up new posts just as has been the routine in the past. The policies initiated by Peron on this site will also continue the same. There will be times when Barb and myself will be busy with other things or out working in the midst of nowhere and in those times there will be no new posts. There is plenty here to read so this should not be a problem. When such times come up we will post it here so everyone will know we are not available and we will also post when we plan to return so that you will know.
I want to thank everyone for the prayers and thoughts and for keeping things moving here. I will keep you posted on Peron as I get information.
Thank you all,
