Returning to The Genealogy Road

There is no easy or quick road to return to what was your normal life after the death of a spouse. The return road is what it is. It’s a dark road that no one would choose to travel. … I could not do any genealogy at all.

Saddest Day of My Life …

On April 27th, my husband, Dr. E. Brian Peach, died of a massive heart attack at our home. No warning. No medical cautionary words made. The man did not take any medications on a regular basis.
