"I never thought would be a widow at 41. I never thought he would go before me. I alwaysknew would take care of me forever," said Rebecca Schadowsky from her home.
Forever for Rebecca endedWednesday when police got the call of gunfire onDunn Avenue shortly before8 p.m.

Schadowsky said she got worried last night when her husbanddid not answer his phone. She said he always kept her updated so shedid not worry.
Wednesday night, afterlearning of the shooting on the latenews and with reports saying a man in a pickuppulling a trailer had been killed, Schadowsky realized that was likely her husband.
