Topic: my husband Jeff passed away today

We benefited so much from the collective wisdom and encouragement of this group! Thank you moderators and community members. I don't know how Jeff could have made it out if his first bad spell almost 2 years ago without someone here sharing their success story with megace for appetite. And that is only the beginning. We were inspired by you all to be hopeful even when doctors told him to get his affairs in order over and over again. Living well with CC for almost two years is pretty damn good. He was only 42. He ran his last 10k this August,  2 days after getting cisplatin and probably with a belly full of acites. smile

Re: my husband Jeff passed away today

My condolences to you on the death of your husband, Jeff.  He was way to young to leave this world - my heart goes out to you for your loss.  He sounds like he pushed the limits and kept moving on in face of the odds that were against him.  I believe attitude is everything and is probably why he lived well with this horrible disease for two years.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Peace & Love,

Re: my husband Jeff passed away today

I am so very sorry to hear about Jeff, the both of you fought the good fight and traveled this Journey together but I guess God needed him more. I think the message below would be fitting and think of it as a note from Jeff to you:

If I should be the first to go,
And leave you alone, my Dear,
Let not your heart be lonely,
Nor in your eyes a tear.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I’ll not be far away,
With petals of love and tenderness,
I’ll pave for you the way.
To join me in our sanctuary,
And ne’er again we’ll part.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I live within your heart.
Take joy again in living,
As you did in years gone by;
God knows what of he’s doing,
And not be questioned why.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
My life with you on earth
Each moment filled with happiness,
And love so few be worth.
I’ll be waiting for you Sweetheart
Where skys are ever blue,
With eager heart and open arms
Patiently, for you.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
May faith and my love keep.
Your soul filled with contentment
Eternally, I sleep.
