Dear Dan,

Please accept my deepest condolences; my thoughts are with you during this very difficult time. Please take some comfort in knowing that your dear wife would be grateful for all that you did for her, and so proud of you for the strength, courage and commitment you’ve shown to her over the years.  She is no longer locked in her own special world, but soaring freely with the angels in the heavens.

With sympathy,

I am truly sorry for your loss. You are a wonderful husband for faithfully visiting her even when she didn't recognize you. I truly believe she is at peace now and although I am sure you are devastated right now but I believe you will find some peace of your own with her passing.

My sincere condolances on the loss of your dear wife.

I know her illness took much of her memory, but I am sure in her heart she always knew what a wonderful husband you were to her.

May each day without her be a little easier as you recall the special times together.

Hugs and love,

Marie who loves kitties

My sincere condolences to you Dan.   She is surely at peace now, Alzheimer's disease is devistating to so many. Having worked in the field for many years, I can sympathize with all you have been through. It is not easy. Sending you strength.

so terribly sorry danker, the last few years must have been very hard. The mind is not always there but the person is.  Alaheimers is a terrible decease which does not only afflicts the person but all who loves them.

My condolences for your loss.
