Sheena,


Very sad to read this. So very sorry. Steve sounded like a very brave man, and he fought hard to not leave you.


Thinking of you in the hard times ahead.

Hi Sheena,


Lovely to hear from you. Although you know he has gone, I think you can be very numb, especially until after the funeral. Just take each hour as it comes. Do what your heart and body asks of you. I think if you try and hold back now, well, it just won't be good for you in long term.


Thinking of you. I am sure you will be an amazing service for Steve. He will be so proud.

Hi Sheena,

Its so hard, I remember feeling as though we were all acting some sort of play and that when it was all over that Trevor would just come back home again, so I understand exactly how you are feeling, its truly awful.

The paper work just seems to go on and on its never ending you think you have notified everyone then something else pops up.

Glad you have had some company, and I will be thinking of you on Wednesday, love to you all sandrax xx

Sheena,


I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. As so many others have said and thought, I hope you can take comfort in knowing that you did everything you could for him.


Make sure that you take care of yourself too.

Dear Sheena,


I hope that the funeral day goes really smoothly, and that you are surrounded by family & friends - they are never easy events, but seeing it with the eyes of celebrating your beloved Steve might help?


I am certain you will have a wonderful send-off planned, but of course, he is only physically gone (and I know that's really tough) - he really will live on in your heart Sheena. All day, every day.


And one day, the memories will bring smiles and laughs, not just tears.


Thinking of you,

Jeni, on behalf of

Support Team.

Beautiful words Jeni, I actually smiled at a photograph this morning,


Massive hugs Sheena and take care of yourself.

Every thing is sorted. Coffin came today so that's a relief. We have made little posies of roses - white from children, red from me. Grandchildren have read through the order of service and its looking good. Sunshine predicted as well.


The hospice has kindly said I can go on Thursday to place flowers at his bench which we donated to celebrate Steve's 69th birthday. Have received beautiful cards and flowers. And we will celebrate Steve's life with family and close friends. I am less stressed today now everything is sorted.


Love to you all x

Hi Sheena, I will be thinking of you tomorrow. It is a very difficult day but with the love and support of your's and Steves's families and friends you will get through it ( despite what you may be thinking at this moment). Sandra is right , you will be amazed and comforted by the love and admiration shown tomorrow.

Hi Sheena. I read through your entire thread tonight and was so saddened to get to the end and realise that Steve too has succumbed to this horrible illness and that you are going through this. I am too late on the thread really to offer you anything other than my deepest sympathy. x

Hi Sheena,

I will be thinking of you tomorrow. Wouldn't it be lovely if your grandchild was born on Steve's birthday.

Stay strong.

I have a funny feeling the baby will. Not long to find out if we are right or not.


Thinking of you tomorrow Sheena, hope all goes as well as it possibly can. You have been incredibly brave throughout xxx
