Topic: Doug Jensen

On Wednesday September 14, 2011 I lost the love of my life and best friend. Doug passed away peacefully and painlessly at home with myself and his 3 children at his side. We had just finished some family time with my son Devin playing guitar and my daughters, Shannon and Tamia plus myself lying in bed with him singing and reminiscing. If a death could be perfect it was. My heart breaks, and my children's hearts break but we will get through. When Doug first got diagnosed in Ocober 2010 I told him I would love him better. He is better. No more pain and suffering, he is free once again.
Today has been a whirlwind and my mind is spinning but I will return to the board soon and will continue the fight against cholangiocarcinoma until we all win. Thank you all for your support over the last number of months. Keep on fighting. We are winning small victories and we will eventually win the war. Hugs. Nancy

Loving my husband from afar.

Re: Doug Jensen

Nancy:  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  Doug was always an inspiration to my and my husband Tom.  Please come back to this site as it will help you heal and you can continue to advise others that continue to fight this terrible cancer.  I know that one day I too will be in your position when Tom's body can no longer go on and I have no idea on how it will impact me but I know that it will be awful.

Hugs to you and yours.  Doug is now at peace and up there with all the others who fought this battle - they are now looking after him.

Go with God, keep Doug alive in your heart.


Re: Doug Jensen

Nancy, I am so very sorry about Doug, and yes he has gone home to his Peace. What a splendid job you both did and what a beautiful ending. My heart is right there with you and and sending prayers to you and your children.

To my dearest family some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay,
I'm writing this from Heaven. Here I shall dwell with God above
Here, there's no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
The day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said "I welcome you,
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone,
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly, you are part of my plan
There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you
And when you lie in bed at night, the days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you . . in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all what God has planned
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand
But one thing is for certain though my life on earth is o'er
I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind
And when it's time for you to go . . from that body to be free
Remember you're not going . . you're just coming here to me.
