the news you never want to hear

hi guys

The news you never want to hear was the last sentiment note I posted and I have my reservations posting this as I know to live with Cancer is to live with a fear of losing the battle

30 september my beautiful Ed, husband, best friend and father to my 4 children, 10 13 15 and 18 passed away in his sleep, I miss him terribly but am consoled by the number of people who attended his funeral the support we have received from family friends and work colleagues, he made an impact in life, on more people than I could ever have imagined and if I was to have him again til the age of 46 or never have him in my life I would choose the former.

I am sorry to be posting this for those people who strive to survive but most of you will survive and for those who worry about those left behind,,, it is painful beyond words but there is a comfort to be had to have known such a wonderful person, to have his legacy in his children and to know that he is their angel for all their lives

Margaret,

I am terribly sorry for your loss, as well as for the loss your family endured during this horrible battle.  As I write this, I am witnessing my dad in his final days.  He was moved to an in-patient hospice facility last evening, which (I feel a bit guilty admitting) has been a bit of a relief for us.  We, too, pray that he finds peace in this time. 

The battle with GBM began May 27, 2010.  He has lived longer than anyone projected.  I am so proud of him and the amazing person he is.  We have learned so much through this journey...not necessarily how we wanted to learn it, but this has resulted in profound learning and growth for the rest of us. I only wish we had more time... 

I pray that your family finds a way to cope with your huge loss...I can only imagine what you all are going through.  Hang in there as best you can, lean on others, and ask for help...perhaps this is the advice I should be taking (instead of giving...lol).

Prayers for you and your family,

Kristin

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. It is so difficult and so painful. My heart goes out to you and your children. I lost my husband in December and have two teenagers -- 14 and 18. I am going to private message you with my e-mail address if you would like to be in touch.

Holly
