My wife of 42 years grew up on a small farm 50 milk cows and 40 acres of potatoes sweet corn and green beans along with hay and corn silage, there were nine children in her family and her grandfather and father farmed together they lost the house and barn to fire in 1969 and rebuilt a year later she lost her brother two years her older in a P.TO. accident ten years later her older brother lost his leg in a sugar beet harvester, the leg was saved and only bothers in cold weather. Her father died after a chain broke when he was unloading a piece of equipment, he was 67. then she lost her younger sister to cancer at age 32 next her mother died of cancer at age 70 and last night we lost her 55 year old brother , he had beat covid but something went wrong, and his heart stopped several times and last night he passed from internal bleeding. I don't know how much more the old girl can take but she is strong in her faith and that keeps her going

  That's a tough row to hoe.  Just when we think that we have it tough we do not have to look far to see others who have more to deal with.

That is tough on all accounts, my sympathies.  They say you only get what you can handle. You and your wife must be amazing. Please keep yourselves healthy and safe, it sounds like the family needs you two.

Praise goes to you also for standing beside her through all the family travails, mom and I have been together for 55 years and the happenings with her family and the happenings with my family were endured hand in hand over the years, good luck in the years ahead.
