I'm simply heartbroken...my wonderful man passed early this morning. I held his hand as he slipped away from me, but we were able to express our deep love for each other right to the end. He had a difficult time passing since he just didn't want to go. After all, he was only 45 yrs. old with two young children. He was the most kind, honest, loving, intelligent man I've ever known. He was an MIT Research Scientist who loved his work as a sonar and radar expert. He also loved sports, especially volleyball. He coached the women's volleyball team at Rutgers Univ. while working on his graduate degree. He was a very special man, an incredible partner, father, brother and friend. This void in my soul will never heal, but I'm thankful that he was part of my life and enjoyed so many special times together.

Rest in peace my dear love, till I see you again.

Cynthia

Oh Cynthia!
Hard to believe....
Very very sorry to hear of Rick's death!
You have to be one of the most caring people I've met on this Board and that makes it doubly hard to believe. If only love and good intentions could make cancer go away.
My deepest sympathy,
Tommycat

Very sorry to hear about your loss, and it strikes close to home as I am 46 (diagnosed Stage 4 with mets to liver, lungs, peritoneum in June 2012), and I also have 6 kids (ages 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, and 4). My wife has been my anchor in this hurricane, and I worry about how they will fare after I am gone. I hope and pray for all the best for you and your children, and again so sorry for your loss. Sounds like you had a great life together.

I am absolutely dreadful with condolences, but I must say this sort of thing upsets me a lot. Only 45-years-old..? I know that life is not fair, but this constantly makes me ponder what the meaning of love is. I feel terrible for you.. the key is what you said near the end there: "I'm thankful that he was part of my life and enjoyed so many special times together."
