What man plans to be the last to die in a marriage? We all believe and statistics support the fact that women live longer than men so why worry about living alone? Leave all the hassels to your loving wife. She'll take your hard earned money and swish off to Paris. But what if, God forbid, that without warning, without any premonition, without even saying "I love you," she is gone? Suddenly you are alone.How do you cope? What skills do you possess? Housekeeping skills that is. Cooking, cleaning, laundry. Did your wife keep the calendar, write the birthday cards, make the appointments, call the repairmen? Who will look after you, make sure your tie matches, your socks are the same, that you get a haircut and you watch your language?This book may not have all of the answers and probably not all of the problems but it does offer advice and comfort to those who are living the life of a widower from one who is living that life. So this is not so much a book about death as it is about how to live. Not the way you planned perhaps but the life that has been given to you.

About the Author:

Bob Hurmence is a retired widower who found himself suddenly single. Having worked thirty-five years in the corporate world as Vice President and Director of Human Resources for a West Texas Supermarket chain he then purchased and operated a commercial printing business for the last ten years of his working life. Retirement followed with the promise of a life together filled with travel, golf, grandchildren, leisure, hobbies and good food.A veteran of WWII. He assembled a collection of service memories furnished by prominent citizens of Lubbock, Texas. Titled, ?A War Remembered,? the book became popular enough to sell out of its limited printing. Hurmence holds a BBA and MBA from Texas Tech University with graduate work toward a PhD at New York University. Nothing outside of the sudden and unexpected death of his wife Boots qualifies him as an expert widower with the exception that he is living as one and is compelled to share the experience.
