My sweet wife lost her battle with cancer today. She is in heaven now. No more sufferring, no more pain. I miss her so bad. There is a huge hole in my life. We were perfect together. She was my best friend and soul mate. How will I ever recover?

There really isn't much else to say. I hope her passing was easy. It broke my heart to read of her decline. I lost my husband to cancer in 2000 and received a lot of support at another web site, www widownet dot org. Everyone there has been right where you are and gets it. Several people here understand too, but many here are the patients themselves. They all care, too, and will give you much support. You just take it one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time and be easy on yourself. Allow yourself to grieve - there is no other way through it than to feel the pain and keep going forward. Being "stoic" or "stuffing it down" doesn't work. Grieve with your children, tell them it's normal to hurt and to cry and that you will all get through it together and you will be there for them. Reassure them you are not going anywhere, even when it seems like you are falling apart.

I don't post much any more. I am the mom - my daughter is still battling this evil disease. But I wanted to tell you I saw this and you have my sympathy, my empathy and my heartfelt condolences. The passing of time will help. There will be a day when you will smile remembering happy memories. It may not seem like it now, but it will come. For now, just feel the pain, let it come, write it down, talk through it, get it out and begin the process of letting the pain go.

It sounds like yours was a sweet love story.

Remember to breathe.

add much more. My husband died this last May five years after his diagnosis ... one moment at a time.  Sincerely wishing you and your children comfort. It is an awful thing all of you have gone through. We are here and we understand.

Peace. ~ Cynthia

Please accept my sympathies for you and your family. I know nothing I can say will ease your pain. I also lost my husband last May. Time does not heal all wounds, but makes them more bearable.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you deal with the loss of your dear one.

When grief overwhelms you, bring out the wonderful memories of your time together and let that help you to remember her in the best of times.

May you and your children find comfort from each other.

I am terribly sorry to read this news.  So many good people lost to this terrible disease.  You have a long, rough road ahead of you.  Just try and get through each day and hopefully over time it will become easier.  Please feel free to send me a PM if you ever need to "talk".  I'm still dealing with my own grief and I can certainly relate to what you're going through.  Take comfort in the fact that she is at peace and no longer suffering.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My sincerest condolences,

I am so sorry that your sweet wife has passed.

There will always be that void in your life, but your children and loved ones will surround that void and you will not fall. 

Take each day as it comes. Cry a little, and don't be shocked or feel guitly when you laugh again. With 20 years of memories, happy times can be yours. 

We're here for you.

When I read the post title, my heart sank.  I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful wife.  You all fought hard against this terrible disease.  She is at peace now and you made sure her final days were as she would have wanted.

Stay close as a family to help get through this.

Please continue to post when you can - we are all here for support.

I have no words of wisdom for you on how to get through this.  The unbearable passage of time is the only help, and it is only a partial remedy, as Wolfen says.  My BIL and his son are doing very well despite everything, 9 years after my sister's death.  But it took a long time.  Slowly the sharp edges of your grief will soften, and you will be able to look back on the good years that you had with your wife.  Your kids will help with that as well, I think.  They are her memorial.

Much love to you, dear man.  You did everything you could, and were clearly a very caring and dedicated caregiver to your wife.

No words can describe what you and your family are going through. The pain, the anger and the feeling of utter loss. Just scream and cry and let it out, healing will come, the loss will be there forever.

I wish you peace and send you love and the knowledge that you are not alone, we all are here for you.

Hugs, Marjan

I am so sorry to hear that your wife has died.  I know you have been on a long and painful journey with her, but she was so lucky to have you there for her. What a blessing that was! Take care of yourself and grieve at you own pace.

I feel like I'm walking around in a daze. There are so many things that need to get done and I don't feel like doing anything. I hate staying home, I see her stuff everywhere. I don't feel like going out either. I just want to sleep, but I can't. It doesn't seem real. I expect to see her on the couch, I expect to wake up next to her in the morning. I can't believe she's gone.

Those are all normal feelings after such a devastating loss. I lost my first wife 15 years ago when I was only 34 years so I do understand your emotions.

When we loose our spouse, all we can do is try to remember all the good times of the past.  The hurt will soften, but never end until you join her in heaven. My sincere condolences.

I want to thank each and everyone of you for love, support and prayers I have been blessed with by the beautiful people on this board. I will get through this. I know Donna would not want me to spend the rest of my life grieving. I will go on and be the best man I can be. That I think, is the best way to honor her life.

         The viewing is tomorrow night and the burial is friday morning. I picked a beautiful spot right next to a little church. I also bought the plot next to her so we can be next to each other forever. Thank you all so much. You have helped over the past sixteen months so much. So many beautiful angels here. God Bless you all.
