Several years ago, I struck up a friendship with a reader named LaTrelle. It began because she was on the mailing list of my weekly newsletter so she'd often reply with her thoughts and comments on what I had written. This went on for a few years until LaTrelle encountered what would be the most difficult challenge of her life - her husband, John, of almost 50 years, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
