Sincere thanks

I have delayed posting the sad news about my husband. He died peacefully at home just a month ago. We are so grateful for the time we had - as he was given a very poor prognosis when first diagnosed in October 2015.
I also want to say a huge thank you to the many members of this forum who have been so generous in sharing their support and advice over the past 6 years. With very best wishes to all.


So sorry to read about your lovely husband @Deemar sending lots of love and strength to you and your family :x::x:

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your lovely husband. We joined the forum around the same time and I know what a wonderful supportive wife you have been. I'm thinking of you and all of your family and friends during this most difficult time. Sending much love and thank you for all the support you've given me over the years :x::x::x::x::x:

@Tiffany just beat me to it.
I don't come here often anymore but tonight I saw your news and have just spent a few minutes scrolling back through all your posts.
We were all here together, remember those days sitting around @Bluebell 's table drinking tea? Dark and troubled times for all of us and yet, out of that darkness came amazing bonds and connections. You certainly supported me through some difficult times, and for that I thank you.
And I see tonight that, despite your own troubles, you have continued to support everybody in your usual way for the past few years.
You have been a true shining light @Deemar.
But now that light shines a little dimmer as you mourn your husband. What an amazing wife you have been, you will definitely have made his passing easier, I know that for a fact. It's who you are and what you do.

So now rest My Lovely.
Rest, mourn and grieve. Nobody has been stronger than you and you deserve a little time out.
And when you are ready (which may not be for a long time), spark up that light again and continue to spread the comfort and happiness that is in your nature.

Sending you the warmest and gentlest of hugs.
