Default Brian gained his angel wings

At approx 1:07 this morning Brian went home to be with the Lord.

DD and I were at his bedside. He went very peacefully. DS has just left not long before and came back with our call.

This coming Jan 17 would have marked 39 years together. Feb 16 would have been 34 years of marriage.

We were blessed with two wonderful children and many wonderful years together.

Brian was dx July 2007, right before his 45th BD. He started with issues at 42. He fought long and hard.

He will be missed.

Thank you all for your awesome and wonderful support.

Hugs

Oh Sue, he knew inside, no matter what was happening outside, that you were his true beloved that was totally there for him no matter what.

I am so very sorry for your loss, over such a long period of time, so many losses. My life has been so enriched for knowing you so far, and I know that you will continue to enrich my life for years to come.

I hope you all can find a way to some peace and consolation as you deal with this tragic loss of the man you loved with everything you have.

Many hugs my dear friend, and to your beautiful family too xxxxx

Sue...Even though we know it's coming it's still hurts terribly. Your Brian was a very lucky man to have had you by his side. I have read your posts and your diligence with making Brian comfortable was inspiring to us all. Thank you for your time and effort in including us all in your journey and helping us along the way. Sending you and your family a huge hug.

Iím so sorry Sue. You helped keep him comfortable for so long. You are as attentive and caring as they come. Brian was lucky to have you by his side. Iím sorry the two of you had to go through this journey.

He is free now. I hope you and your family find peace and strength.

Sue,
I am very sorry to hear of Brian's passing. He is now free of the monster that held him for so very long. You were an incredible caregiver.

I hope you can reach back in your memories for one of Brian before the beast appeared and hold that in your heart.

Wishing you peace as you move forward. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
