Topic: My Beautiful girl is gone....

Its with much sadness that I need to report that my partner, Fiona passed away yesterday morning by my side.  Fiona held hope to the end but as we all know on the forum - this terrible disease gets you in the end.

Fiona made it to our 5th anniversary, I believe that is what she aimed for. 

Like so many here, she was just too young at 47.

Re: My Beautiful girl is gone....

Ralf,

I am so sorry to hear of Fiona's passing.  You are so right, she was too young. My husband was 62 & that was too young and Fiona was much younger.  Atleast she achieved her goal of making it to your 5th anniversary and to have you by her side was a blessing.   She is no longer in pain & struggling to fight this awful disease.  I know that this is not much consolation right now, but try to take comfort in the fact that she will be with you forever in your heart & memories.   Know that you are not alone. Many of us share your loss & grieving. Come back often. We are all here to help & support each other. So many of us have been where you are now. You are in my thoughts & prayers along with all the others affected by this awful cancer.

We are so very sorry about Fiona's passing. She is now in a much kinder and gentler place. I love this little poem and maybe it will help ease the pain:

If I should be the first to go,
And leave you alone, My Dear,
Let not your heart be lonely,
Nor in your eye 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 of what 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.

I am so, so sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful wife. 47 is too young.

My husband (45 years old...) is not doing very well and I am sick with fear. I can't imagine your pain. I am praying for you and Fiona is watching over you, with love.
