On Monday, April 20th, the world lost a real life teddy bear. Terry Robert Foster was kind, sweet, funny, generous, and a genuinely happy guy. He could make anyone smile, whether through his infections laugh, equally infectious grin, and his enthusiasm for everything. He truly loved life, and said many times that above all, he wanted to live. He wanted to beat the liver and kidney failure that ultimately robbed us, day by day, slowly over eight months, of his presence. He fought as hard as he could, but due to the tragic handling of healthcare, he wasn't given enough time to get on a transplant list. Because he wasn't insured before January 1st, September, October, November, and December were wasted months. Valuable wasted months. Terry's last days were extremely challenging, as Terry's mobility and communication skills diminished into nothing. When all was said and done, Terry passed away peacefully in his home, with his long-time partner by his side.
Terry wasn't just my Parnter -- he was my best friend and my rock. We met at a New Year's Eve party in 1998/1999 and it truly was love at first sight. I felt more comfortable with Terry, this man I had just met, than with my own family. We went on to spend over 21-and-a-half years together and I am so thankful for every second. However, right now, sitting here, I am utterly lost without him.
My beloved Terry passed on Monday. To me, every day stretches into infinity then finally in the next. It's only been four days, but it's felt like four lifetimes without Terry. I miss him so much. I miss his voice. I miss the way he made up his own song lyrics, I miss the way he would ask me if he looked nice in that button-up, I miss hearing him snore, I miss waking up and knowing the most important person in my life is directly to my left.
I love you, Terry. Can't wait to see you on the other side. 'Til death do us part.
