Condolences to Sandra Day O’Connor

Condolences to Sandra Day O’Connor

As reported by AP:

John J. O’Connor III, the husband of retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, has died.

The court said that O’Connor, 79, died Wednesday in Phoenix, Ariz., of complications arising from Alzheimer’s disease.

John O’Connor, himself a lawyer, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s nearly two decades ago. His condition deteriorated markedly in mid-decade and when she announced her retirement in 2005, the justice cited the need to care for her husband.

Lives of mutual sacrifice, each putting the other’s well-being ahead of one’s own. The key to any lasting relationship.

My condolences.

My condolences too. It is not easy to lose a spouse, especially to Alzheimer's. My mom died of it after having it for 8 years. She disappeared before our eyes.
