Hi all and I just want to thank everyone for their help over the 7 months that Ron was failing.

Just to let you all know that Ron passed away May 26th just after noon. He was in a coma for about two days and just passed away with no pain, no fear --- just like they say. I knew it was coming by the way he was breathing. His kids just took off to go for lunch and he died, alone with me in my arms, not five minutes after they left. I was truly grateful to be alone with Ron - I didn't want anyone else around and I feel that he didn't either (I'd like to believe that, anyways). So basically the C02 took over, as well as the fact he was no longer eating and hadn't had anything to drink in 6 days. He was my angel and now he has his wings.

Strength, hugs and courage out to all of you

Love, Heather

Heather, he was so lucky to have you at his side. I know you worked very hard to keep him comfortable and as you say, it was the two of you. Peace and strength to you, and please keep sharing with us whatever/whenever you like.

Best,
Laurie

I'm so sorry Heather for your loss. You've been through so much suffering these many months. I was touched by what you wrote of his peaceful passing and your having personal time to say goodbye. May you find strength and comfort in these days and months ahead. You stood by him till the end, loving him with all your being.

So very sorry for your loss Heather. Sending you much love, peace and light to get you through this difficult time. So pleased for Ron and you that his passing was so peaceful and that he is now free. I love your words about Ron being your angel and now having his wings. I call my husband my angel and your words brought me comfort. Go well.
