Hello Brian,
I am so sorry to hear about your wife and understand how you feel, having lost my husband to this awful disease just two months ago. My thoughts are with you and your family.
Take care,
Hilary

Hi Brian

I am so sorry and sad to hear that Michelle lost her brave battle.

it does sound though that you enjoyed some peaceful and special moments with her before she passed away and I do hope that that offers some comfort for you now.

Thinking of you

At Michelle's funeral on saturday, we asked everyone to wear something pink or purple to raise awareness of research into breast and pancreatic cancer. Over 250 family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues turned up to pay respect to Michelle.
All of them remembered her as a caring, friendly, strong woman with a cheery smile and a kind word for everyone. At the funeral service my daughter Lynsey and son Andrew found the strength to stand-up and tell of happy memories of their mum. I also was able to say some words and read verses from the poem called 'You'...I think Michelle lifted me out of my seat and was there beside me at the lectern.
Lynsey has set up a 'Giving page' for raising funds for Pancreatic cancer research and it's already at £900.

That sounds wonderful Brian. Don't how you and your children found the strength to stand up and speak, how lovely.

Well done on the Just Giving to. We raised quite a bit at Ray's funeral and I've been told more donations have been made since.

Best wishes

That is a lot of people who cared about Michelle. I am sure that is a great comfort to you. Glad the funeral went so well. You must have been so proud of your children and Michelle would have been too. They sound like a credit to you both.
Take care Brian,

Nikki
