All of you have been so supportive during my time of grief.

My wife died this afternoon at 3:30 PM. I wanted all of you to know how grateful I am for your encouragement. I was with her at the time with hospice.

Our journeys never really end do they?

Hello David,
My condolences for the loss of your wife. I lost my husband 2 1/2 weeks ago to brain cancer-
I can only imagine the sorrow you are feeling now.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. My husband will be gone soon as well, there are no options left except hospice to lessen our pain. My prayers are with you....stay strong and may God bless you through this time and always.

Sincerely, Gayle

Yes, the journey does continue. Even though it was expected and you wanted your wife to be free of pain, I know that you are hurting. Grief is not really new to you. This type of grief is a new stage for you, though, and it will not be an easy one. I know that there are no words to lessen your pain, but I did want to express my sorrow. Just remember that you are not alone. The next few days will probably pass in somewhat of a fog. That is ok. It helps us cope. Take care of yourself now. Fay

Like so many here, I'm thinking of you and your daughter as you get through the next few days and then restart your lives. Where will the journey go from here? Wherever that is, Esther will be with you.

Dearest David
I am so sorry for your recent loss. We have been here with you through this journey. I am actually wiping a tear from my eye. I do not know either one of you personally, but I feel like I do! We knew this time was coming. Thank God for hospice. So glad you and hospice were with her when she passed.
Dear God please take good care of Esther. She was a strong, brave, fighting woman. Give her the well deserved peace she has needed for so long. Please be with David and his family, give them peace at this most difficult time. In Jesus' name we pray...amen. Please continue to come to this site, David. It has helped me so much since my dad's passing. Together we can share our experiences and help others who age going through what we have been through. You know you were a wonderful husband and caregiver. You did an excellent job caring for your wife. She knows that. We will see our loved ones again. There we will be able to spend eternity together. Hugs to you and your family.
Love,
Tina

I know you are hurting. When I saw your wifes name Esther I thought of the beautiful queen Esther, and thought she surely is before the King. Wed. 7-28 I thought of you and told God if she must go take her quickly no agony no pain just peacefully. Allow peace to embrace you knowing you did all you could. You treated her like a queen.
Take care a big hug 2 u from me

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your wife.

I noted on your fiend's list that you had PeterHW listed. His wife reported to the colorectal board that Peter lost his fight on July 5th after his 3rd clinical trial failed.

May Ester and Peter's fighting spirits bring comfort to all who knew them, if only through these boards, and give all the rest of us fighting this monster strength.

I am so sorry.

Tina from the Colorectal Board

Hi David,

I'm so sorry. I hope you find comfort in the moments you were there with your wife before she died. My mom passed away a little more than a month ago. I'm writing with the hopes that you might have some ideas about what I can do for my dad. Do you have any suggestions about what I might be able to do for him?
