David died yesterday afternoon surrounded by his mom, his kids, his sister Sue who got out of the hospital an hour earlier, his sister in law, his brother in law, his best friend, and me, of course.

I feel so privileged to have spent 37 years married to the man of my dreams. I will miss him terribly but I hope I am a better person now because of my two and a half years as a caregiver. He told the kids and I that if you have to die, this is the way to do it, surrounded by those you love.

We have no regrets in his choice of treatments, or in the medical team we assembled. He had a couple of wonderful hospice nurses that assisted us in so many ways. Our family and friends have been amazing. We feel so very blessed.

His celebration of life service will be Friday and his cremated remains will be buried next week in our home town. I won't be able to post much for the next few days but I've grown to love this board and all of you, and I will return when I can. I only want the best for all of you. I will celebrate your victories and mourn your losses. There is no better group on earth!

Sadly,
Priscilla

Dearest Priscilla,

My heart is so heavy over the loss of David by this cancer.

I am so glad, that he was surrounded by his loving family, and that you had wonderful friends standing beside you all as well.

He had his own angel on this earth, YOU, and I'm sure he has a wonderful welcoming party waiting for him in heaven, surrounded by loved ones still.

I am sorry for your loss of this man you loved for so many years. Take care of yourself dear. We will continue to think of you and yours.

a friend reminded me just yesterday, that when she has a loss, she tries to focus on the time you had with that person, instead of the time you lose. 37 yrs is awesome, not many are that lucky any more...I am very sadden to hear this, but I know he will always be with you.

Dear Priscilla,

I know there are mixed feelings now. We have to be greatful that David is not in pain and has moved beyond cancer now, but his absence leaves a hole in our lives.

I am glad that he was able to communicate with you all and that you and your loving family were with him to ease his way.

Celebrate his life and his love for you and yours for him.

Take care. Wishing you and your family an easing of the loss of dear David.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

I want to offer you my condolences for the loss of your beloved David. You two were a team to admire + I am awed by the way you supported him every step of the way. I also cannot believe how giving you are to this board, when your hands have been so full. I smile everytime I see the picture of you + David, partly because it is such a lovely picture + partly because David reminds me so much of a friend of my parents who was such a big part of my life growing up. His first name also was David, but he went by "Jerry" (middle name). Please take good care of yourself.

Pricilla,

For those of us who live in Christ, we know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I pray that you find some comfort in knowing that David is with the Lord. And your focus continue to be on the 37 wonderful years you had together. Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal. Be blessed.

Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I agree, there is no better group than this one.
You were such an amazing caregiver and I applaud you for that. I lost my sister in April to this horrific disease and still cannot come to terms with it.
I pray for peace for the coming days for your family. David was truly loved.
