What an amazing woman.

The Memsahib, wife of Jim Rawles of SurvivalBlog fame, is dying. The doctors have given her two months, and she is working through her Bucket List.

There is an item on her list that she would like your help with.

Finding a woman to take care of Jim after she's gone.

I can't imagine the will it must have taken to write this.

What an amazing woman.

Jim is a lucky man to have had time with her.

So sad. Can anyone kindly indicate what happened to this nice lady? A horse accident as mentioned summer of '08? Doesn't make sense because horse accidents don't linger over a year, like a chronic illness, unless there's say, a profound spinal injury or brain injury. But she has been writing on occasion, so I know it wasn't the latter.

I don't believe the specifics of her illness were noted. Besides OPSEC, they strike me as private people.

If I had any form of notoriety when I died, I wouldn't want the specifics of my death to be released either. I feel that adding my life to a statistic for cancer or heart disease would lessen the loss. I think many others feel the same way.
