This page is a tribute to the love of my life “Wan” who suffered a stroke and passed away just before Christmas 2019. It’s tough starting over looking for love at this age, I’m 68. So I’m not really sure where life will lead me. God, please guide me as I write this possibly last chapter in my life’s story.
As it’s often said – when your time is up – it’s up – and you leave this earth. My sweetheart Wan suffered a stroke Sunday and was rushed to the ER. A brain embolism put her in a coma. She was brain-dead and taken off the ventilator. Thought we would grow older and be together forever.
Her loss came while she was at Nexus Thai Church in Bradenton FL. Paramedics got there quickly but the damage was already done. A brain bleeds from an Asian disease called MoyaMoya which is clotting of the main arteries in the brain. New paths grew to deliver the blood where it was needed.
From what the neurosurgeon told me, one of those vessels burst and flooded her brain with blood. They tried inserting a tube to drain the blood but it soon clotted. The large volume of blood squeezed her brain causing it to die at only 63 years young. She was kind and considerate toward everyone. 😥
She is a Christian from Thailand and U.S. Citizen. Republican AND a Trump Supporter!
She has traveled the world. This photo was taken in Norway in 2012. I’m feeling numb inside but trying to stay focused. She is the best most loving caring woman I ever met.

Our first date was in 2008 in Clearwater Beach FL after meeting on match.com. She is the 2nd love I have lost. My mind is drifting with thoughts of my wife who passed in early 2008.

Wan when she was young in Thailand with her dog and motorcycle. She was so beautiful and will be forever beautiful in my eyes. So sad you’re gone. I will always love you!

Our last vacation together on 11/2019 😥 cruise to Cozumel Mexico.
It was Wan’s goal to live in America and become a U.S. Citizen which she achieved in 2008. She loved America but was disappointed with politics and political parties fighting. 🙁
Update 06/24/21: Ever since Wan was a child she dreamed of living in America and becoming a US citizen. In 2008 she achieved that goal by learning English and becoming a US citizen. She loved America! I’m thankful the Lord called her home when he did so she didn’t have to bear the Heartache of seeing her beloved America torn apart by those who are destroying our constitution! 😡
God has called her home and has other plans for both of us. I’m really torn up over her going to be with the lord, but she’s in peace now. This blog is also about my life, that’s why this post is here. If you can’t say something nice, don’t bother commenting. Forever rest in peace, my love!
