My life is changed forever.

Ronald J. “Dusty” Woods, 1947-2017.

On September 8, 2017, my beloved husband, Ronald J. “Dusty” Woods, passed away at the age of 70.

Funny, “seventy” sounds so old – but it seems far too soon to lose the man I’ve been married to for 40 years.

I’ve received a lot of love, help and support in this time of loss.  My particular thanks go out to Dusty’s sister Joan and brother-in-law Dave, who share my loss and who have been totally supportive.  I am also grateful to Jayne’s Funeral Home in Digby, Nova Scotia, which handled all the details of the death and cremation, including helping me apply for assistance so I could afford to do it all.

It’s been almost 3 months now.  Life is starting to resume something of normalcy, but the moments of realization still come at unexpected times and the pain, while coming to the fore less frequently, is still just as strong.

What does this have to do with business?  My business is what I do; “Mrs. Dusty” is (still) who I am.  The two really do become one flesh, and the years of going through life together draw the bonds ever closer.

Rest in peace, my Blues Man.

More to follow.
