Scott is at Peace

Hi all, I wanted to let my ACS Family know that Scott passed away on Saturday, Oct. 1st. His twin brother was with him. They came into the world together, and I feel it appropriate that they were together for Scott's passing.

I believe Scott was waiting for me to leave. I left Gilchrist Hospice at 8:20pm and Scott passed away at 8:40pm. He is in peace now and no longer in pain.

The kids are doing ok. Kerilyn, our 5 y/o cries but I just tell her that Daddy is an angel now and will always be watching over her. Scotty, our 8 y/o is just being quiet. He doesn't want to talk about it. I told him it is ok to cry, that I've been crying for a long time and it's nothing to be ashamed of. I sent them to school today because I want things to be as normal as possible. I spoke with their teachers and told them to call me if they feel the kids aren't up to staying all day.

I cannot thank you all enough for the love and support which was shown to me throughout this ordeal. You are all my guardian angels.

Linda, my tears flow for you. As I prayed for you and Scott last night, as I always do, I did have a feeling he may have passed. It was his time and, as you say, he is at peace.

You have been a wonderful, strong and supportive wife as well as a caring and loving mother. Scott will live on in his children, so, in some ways, he will always be with you.

Scott put up such a battle! and you were there by his side fighting too. My thoughts are with you as you enter this new phase of your life.

I wonder how his parents are taking the news? I hope they support you now.

Much love,

Dear Linda
I know that words probably seem trivial at a time like this, but you are very much in my thoughts and prayers and I think your bravery and dignity have been an inspiration. Take care of yourself and try to keep strong (but cry when you need to as I think it's therapeutic)

My heart sank and tears fell when I read your post. I don't know what to say. There's nothing that can be said that can take away the sorrow you and your children must be feeling. But all of your previous posts have defined you as a very strong and courageous woman who will find a way to get her and her children through this. You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to read your post. Scott put up the battle of a lifetime. It does not seem fair that your family has to go through this. I hope that your children will keep Scott close in their hearts and be able to deal with their loss a little better each day.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. Yes, I too hate this disease with a passion and hopefully some day families will not have to suffer and grieve over it.

I'm really very sorry to read about all of this. Your story has been inspirational in ways you probably cannot even imagine. The ways that you have been so strong, and there for the kids ... it's really amazing. I wish you the best in the future, and also for your children. I hope it helps your Kerilyn to know that Daddy is an angel looking after her.

Linda honey,

You know you and your family have been in my hourly prayers for a while and will continue to be.

Now, I must thank you for helping me to learn the caregiver side of this horrid disease. Like Kanga, I agree that it is harder on you then us "patients". You have been so wonderful to and for Scott. Thank you for being you. You are a phenomenial woman and mother. I am honored to know you.

I am so so sorry to read your news Linda. I hope and pray you and your children are blessed with continued strength.

Maybe you can find some peace thinking of Scott in the words of my favorite hymn..

"and He will raise you up on angel's wings
and bear you on the breath of dawn
make you shine like the sun
and hold you in the palm of His hand."

God bless you and your children.

What can anyone say? God bless you and the children. Scott is most certainly an angel, forever by your side.

I want to thank you for sharing Scott with us. We are all a great big family here. Young and old(er), weak and strong, men and women. Scott fought hard and with such dignity. You were his right hand lady. Strong, brave, loving.

May God grant you and your family peace. I feel honored to "know" you and Scott. Thank you.

Peace and Love to you,
