Tuesday evening my husband passed peacefully in our home with our son, me, and his devoted dog Maxwell curled beside him.  I wanted to share with you some information about this extraordinary man that I loved. Link to article below (I don't know how long the link will work). When you go to the site, click on his picture and it will open an article. 37 years together ... it is hard to imagine that he is gone, but my son and I are both relieved that he will no longer suffer. I am in the process of planning his cremation and in the future, when our emotions have settled, we will have a celebration of his life. Thank you kindly for your support and best to you all.

I am so very sorry for your loss.  I know full well the depth of despair and loneliness and hatred for this disease you are experiencing right now and nothing I can say can ease that right now.  I can only say I am so very sorry for your loss.

Hugs and Love - Tina

Cynthia,

Yes, the journey does continue. Even though it was expected and you wanted your husband to be free of pain, I know that you are hurting. This type of grief is a new stage for you, 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 deepest sorrow for the loss of your good man.  Just remember that you are not alone. Take care of yourself now.

Cynthia words are never enough to describe the pain and sorrow you are experiencing. I wish you peace and strength in the days ahead.

In time you will cherish the memories. Accept the love of your family and your dog, especially our animals are able to give us the strength and

courage to go on.

Hugs, Marjan

I am so sorry at your loss, but find tears of happiness that you, your son and Maxwell were all there to ease his passing from this realm into another.

I am so glad you had 37 years with the man you loved, and how well you stood beside him when he needed you so much when cancer came bursting onto the scene.    Many of us could only dream of a love like you two shared.

Virtual hugs to you dear friend.  I am thinking of you often.  We are here for you as you have been for us.

My condolences and love,

Winter Marie

Cynthia,

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear husband.  As I read about him I was so moved by these words,

 

"For those who worked closely with Bryan, he is remembered most for his wry and often wicked sense of humor, his grace and devoted friendship, his love of music and reading, and the many acts of kindness that he performed without an expectation of thanks or recognition,”

 

What an incredible man!  My prayers are with you.

 

Aloha,

Kathleen
