Jarrell lost the battle

On June 1 at 4:50 am Jarrell passed away at home (which was his last wish) our two children and myself were by his side. My heart is broken and I miss him so much. His last month was very hard, he was pain free but suffering so with the confusion and parania. Some days he did not know what was going on. The last week is etched in my mind and I am hoping that someday soon that fades so I can cherish the good days. Hopsice gave him two great months in which we made lots more memories.

I already knew this news from FB, but wanted you know again how very sorry I am for your loss.

You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Ida,
I remember your updates about hospice because they were right around the time I joined the site. I want to express my deepest heartfelt sympathy for you and your family. I remember that you did have a joyful month and I'm so happy about that. I hope the sad memories are trumped by the wonderful loving memories you shared with Jarrell.
Sending love and hugs to you!

Dear Ida,
So sorry for this news. It has been a long struggle for Jarrell, you and your children. Glad that the hospice could make it happen at home. It will take time to get the sad memories of those last days to go away but they will and be replaced by much happier ones. Will be praying and thinking of you. many hugs and prayers for these coming days,

I am sorry to hear of Jarrell's passing.

I am so angry that this cancer has claimed another of our good people. It's just unfair.

Please hold your memories of better days close to your heart. I hope you find comfort in them.

With love,
