"We had a lot of support during that time though. Friends told me, ‘You have to accept help’, and I did. I’m very lucky to have a job that allows me to meet so many people in the community and to have so many ‘families’: my musical family, my artistic family, my theater family (especially Playhouse on the Square), my work family, my neighbors---with all of them, there was just an amazing outpouring of love and support. They brought us food, cleaned our house, and just took care of everything. Work was great, especially over the last year of Greg’s life. He was in the hospital for huge chunks of time. My work family said, ‘You don’t need to worry about the job. You need to be there with him. We’ll cover for you.’ Darel Snodgrass, the morning Classical Music Host, took my afternoon shifts so I could be with Greg. I gathered up the radio, our board games, and our favorite CDs and basically moved into Greg’s hospital room. At Christmas time, I took in a little tree.
"I recovered from the cancer, but Greg’s health problems worsened. In addition to the heart and brain surgery issues, he had cancer and liver problems. He passed away on April 1, 2013. I think about him a million times a day, and I miss him all the time."
