Heart Broken for Will Reeves
Why do I feel so sad? Especially for her son who lost 2 parents in less than 18 months. When I heard the shocking news of Dana Reeves death it took the happiness out of my heart. I feel so bad like she was a close friend of mines. I guess because I really admired her. She was an amazing woman.
I wanted her to experience a new rebirth, plenty of joy and much happiness as she started her new life without her husband the late Christopher Reeves. Who am I to say, maybe she did? There are not many women who would have stood so faithfully with their husband at his time of need. Or at least I don't know any. I had one friend whose husband took ill and he pushed his wife away because he did not want her to see him living in a nursing home in thirties, slowly deteriorating. He broke her heart. She tried to hold on but it's hard when you are rejected, and cursed out every time you went to see him. So that's why I admire this love story.
Who was Dana? She was a singer-actress who married Christopher, the tall handsome star of the "Superman" movies. After being married for three years he suffered a spine injury when he was tossed off a horse. Dana devoted herself to his care and his cause after he was paralyzed. She was 44.
That was too young when she had sacrificed so much. I wanted God to continue to bless her but I guess he did. I didn't know her. It just hurt to see her die only 18 months after her husband. Christopher died in October 2004.What a blow! What a heartbreaker for their young son. I read somewhere that she planned for his future and left him with loving relatives and friends. She was such an inspiration.This love is to you Dana for being a strong beautiful woman. You did what God wanted you to do. Then he came back to get you. Rest in peace..........
