Topic: Mu Husband Bob

My husband Bob passed away a week ago yesterday from CC.  It was his third time with cancer, but the only one he could not beat. He walked 5 miles a day and was fairly athletic until he passed out during one of his walks.   His cancer grew faster than anyone thought and surgery  was stopped as Dr saw cancer had already spread into liver, gall bladder and who knows were else.  He chose not to go on Chemo again as he wanted quality of life for the 6 or so good remainder months he was to have.  Radiation was not offered or an option.  We did apply for a Clinical Trial and he was selected for one using DNA but didn't want to give up his few good months left.  He never had those months.  He died exactly four months from the date of surgery. 

His dream was to see all his children and grandchildren together under our roof before he died as our children life all over the country.  He got his wish and died five days later.  He was 72 years old.

Jan....please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your dear husband.  My heart is with you and your family.  Jan, one of the most difficult things to accept with this disease is the lack of early detection, as that is the key to long term survival with this silent cancer.  Unfortunately, as it so happened with you dear husband, this cancer had metastasized and appeared to be not treatable. 
When cancer strikes, we loose control over our bodies and that to me is one of the most devastating things humans must endure.  Your husband though, took control of how he wanted to proceed. He must have been grateful to you and your family for allowing him to do just that.  Tell us more, dear Jan, about the wonderful gathering with the entire family.  This must have been a so very special event.
We are in this together and we welcome each and everyone to join in.  Thanks for doing so, dear Jan.

Dear Janet, I am so very sorry about your Husband and hope you will please accept my sincere condolences. It sounds like Bob was an amazing man putting family above all else and that will be foremost in your good memories!

Those we love must someday pass beyond our present sight…
They leave us and the world we know without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle their lovely light will shine
To brighten up another place more perfect…more divine.
And in the realm of Heaven where they shine so warm and bright,
Our loved ones live forevermore in God’s eternal light.
