Abstract

Although we attempt to plan the way we live, perhaps the best description of life is from the words of Yogi Berra: “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.” A little over a year ago, I thought my future was predictable; after a fulfilling career, I would enjoy a last decade of research before a comfortable retirement. Then I lost my beloved wife and life partner, Suzanne Eaton to a senseless act of violence, and all assumptions were called into question.
