I am so sorry for your loss. I know there are no words to take away the incomprehensible pain, so I won't try, but I hold you and your family in my prayers.

kinsman, may your wonderful wife rest in peace. and may God give you peace and comfort. It is alright to cry. You go ahead and cry, it's good for the heart and mind. Believe me, I went through this a year ago when my beloved son passed due to Als, too. Your wife's departure was somewhat kind of similar to my son's. He too, passed at home sorrounded by loved ones. I watched him take his "last breath" and I felt my heart and soul ripped from my body. I am coming along, my friend, with a lot of faith and prayers. I do a lot of things that my sweet son would have wanted for me to do. You take care, and God bless you. Your precious wife is in Good Hands. She is watching over you. You now have an angel watching over you. Keep us posted, don't be a stranger. Again, "God Bless."

kinsman,
I'm so sorry you've lost your wife and soul-mate. What a life you must have had together from childhood to now. I'm sure you do feel lost without her. I can only imagine what it's like to reach this stage in your PALS' illness. Some of us CALS have yet to experience that loss and emptiness. It's the biggest dread of all.
Please know that I will keep you in my thoughts. I wish you some measure of comfort as these slow, painful, empty days go by.
Post again if it brings you comfort and let us know how you're doing.
Peace to you, kinsman,
Jane

I am sorry for your loss, Kinsman. Feel free to join us anytime the going gets rough. People around here are very understanding and I would hate for you to think you have to cope all alone. Cindy
