  1. She retired to care for him.

  2. It’s both sweet and sad, isn’t it?

  3. She gave up that much power in order to share more time with the love of her life. Smart call, and one I don’t think many at her level would make. I do not like her decisions… I particularly thought they were clumsy and created messes. But she has wisdom.
