If love could save him, he'd live forever update 💔

My darling strong man Dave passed peacefully away today, all on his terms, no pain and at home with us by his side. Thank you for all of your help and support, much love Frances :x::x::x: Today we had the worst news, Lonsurf is not working and my beautiful, strong husband is on end of life, days maybe weeks. We are numb with shock. The palliative team are coming to help us at home, as that's Dave's wish. I want to thank you all for your support, the help through this forum has given us options to chase and in the end more time. Thank you for sharing so generously, Love Frances :x::x::x:

Dearest @Frances Styles I had a msg to say you had tagged me but the post has disappeared. I hope you are ok?Msg me if I can help at all. My love to you and yours at this difficult time :x::x::x:


@Frances Styles
So very sorry. I hope that you and your family can draw comfort that you did EVERYTHING you could for Dave - research, talking to the doctors, collecting information on here and all the other stuff none of us know about. You always walked beside him - every single step of the way. He knew he was loved, which is the greatest gift we can give to anyone.
Lots of love to you and all your family and friends,
Helen :x:


Dear @Frances Styles I have just read the heartbreaking news about Dave’s passing. I’m so so sorry for you and your family. I will always remember the two of you together as a formidable team with Dave living life to the full and you doing everything possible to love and support him, something that shone through from the very first posts of yours’ I remember reading on the forum.

At the same time you’ve been a huge support to others despite this.

All my thoughts are with you tonight and I hope in time the support of your family and the great memories of times you’ve spent together will provide some comfort to you. Dave - rest in peace always.
