Dear Lainy - Well, just from the number of posts - you know how much you and Teddy have meant to all of us who are on this web site.  All of our thoughts are with you today and always.  There are no words....Nancy

Re: Teddy is at PEACE

My dear Lainy

My heart really goes out to you, reading that your darling man, Teddy, has passed.  But you were with him every step of the journey, to the very last - and I feel it has indeed been a privilege to share a little of that journey with you.

Do you know the piece entitled "The Ship"? I will do my best to paraphrase: 

A ship sets sail from the harbour and those on the quayside wave farewell until it reaches the horizon, passes from view and seemingly is gone.  But, as those watching and waving farewell lose sight of it, there are others beyond the horizon seeing it come into view, and they welcome the ship into harbour with great joy - safely home!

Teddy is indeed now safely home.

With love to you and all your family.

Re: Teddy is at PEACE

Dearest Lainey,
   Peace, love, prayers....what more can I say.  Teddy is now amongst Rob, Jeff and so very many others that have transitioned to the other side because of CC.  Rough days coming up for you, but we are all here for you and you are a very strong being.  You have been a wonderful wife and friend.  Take care of you now.

Wishing all God's blessings!

Re: Teddy is at PEACE

Dear Lainy,

This quote from an unknown person helped me grieve without feeling crazy. It is overwhelming, but after the storm, you will eventually get better:

"It has been said that time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its' sanity, covers them with scar tissue, and the pain lessens, but it is never gone."

Your story has inspired so much hope in so many people. Teddy leaves such a legacy of love, not to mention all the miracles! Now I know who to direct my prayers to when I need a little help upstairs--our very own Miracle Man!

Re: Teddy is at PEACE

Ah, Lainy:

While I'm so saddened to hear of Teddy's passing, I'm relieved to know that he's no longer in pain and is at peace.  Your love story and how you both viewed this journey invokes an emotion in me that I can't even put into words.  You're an amazing lady and Teddy was truly blessed to have such a strong partner. 

My prayers are with you and your family as you embark on this next phase.  Teddy's looking down at all of you with a smile and the knowledge that he'll see you again....
