None of us like the thought of our partner being alone when we pass away, and one woman is doing whatever she can to keep that from happening.
"Sharon B" is suffering from advanced pancreatic cancer and doesn't like the idea of her Significant Other (who's not her husband ... but that's another story) being without her when she dies. So she posted an ad on Craigslist hoping to find another companion for a man she only referred to as "A."
Here is some of her letter:
"My name is Sharon B. For the past five years, I have had a regular ongoing intimate relationship with a wonderful gentleman, "A". He is kind, supportive, funny, and most important of all, very attentive to my sexual needs. This relationship was outside my marriage, and it's a long story, so I'll save it for later communication.
I was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I do not have long to live. I have made peace with my situation. My family has been very supportive, but one of my last regrets is that I will be abandoning my wonderful intimate partner. He has no idea that I am posting this. I intend to post it on all of the Craig's list categories that might elicit a real response. I would like to find, before I die, a wonderful woman who is worthy of his attention. I will try to persuade him to contact those who I think will treat him as I have, and will forward to them his email address."
May we all be so lucky to have our own "Sharon B." (Jezebel)
