Re: John G My Wonderful Husband, Dad & Grampy

John, my darling husband, brave & fighting it to the last, sadly passed away on Saturday evening at 9.45pm. To say we are devastated is an understatement and although it was expected the reality is still a great shock. My two elder daughters and I were with him at the end, my younger daughter was at...

John G My Wonderful Husband, Dad & Grampy

Just to update on John's situation, I haven't been on here for a while. John is now in the local St Margaret's Hospice receiving wonderful care & attention. Not sure of timeframes but as he is unable to eat and drinks minimally, it is looking to be sooner rather than later. Pain is increasing almost...

Re: Husband J Severe D & V

Leila, Thank you so much for your kind words. I know you are going through it yourself trying to cope with the loss of your dear Dad so very much appreciate your taking the time to comment.

Re: Unable to cope

Leila, I am so very sorry for your deep and personal loss. I don't know you like some of the others but wanted to say something. I thought it was just me that felt as you do now about your Dad. My darling Mum died on 6th June 2011 of lung cancer with brain mets and for the first 2 years after she di...

Re: Husband J Severe D & V

Thank you so much Sandra and Sue for your kind words. We have been married for nearly 23 years and been together for 35 years. I was a child bride of course! We are looking forward to the day very much. Even splashing out on M & S sarnies & party bits. J says he can't take it with him!

Re: Roger's Story

Sue, I am so very sorry to read this news. It must be heartbreaking for you both. My husband John appears to be having more pain and discomfort and is losing weight rapidly still despite everything being done and is so exhausted, so we too feel the end may be sooner than we had anticipated. He wants...
