Hello. My name is Ellouise Schoettler. My husband, Jim Schoettler, died at home under Hospice care March 6, 2012. His first Funeral Mass was March 24. His next Mass and final burial at Arlington National Cemetary was August 1.
From the beginning I needed to write about what was happening and I did so on my other blog Ellouisestory.blogspot.com.
For six years Ellouisestory has been my one place to write about story, storytelling and family.
I am working hard to return to my professional life as a storyteller and I want to have a little separation between the storyteller me and the widow me.
Now I want to talk about my life as a widow here.
