TODAY THE FIRST E.MAIL I HAD IN MY YAHOO ACCOUNT, WAS THE FOLLOWING WHICH
I AM COPYING HERE, MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE WAITED FOR FIDDLEPLAY OR JIMERCAT TO POST THIS HERE, IF I DID WRONG I ASK FOR AN APOLOGY.

I AM SO OVERWHELMED BY THIS SINCE JACKIE AND I HAD BECOME GOOD FRIENDS, SHE HAS LOST HER BELOVED HUSBAND ONE YEAR AFTER MY HUSBAND JORGE WHO PASSED AWAY LAST DEC. 30TH.

HORACE IS NOW RESTING IN PEACE, MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND HIS FAMILY, I COULDN'T STOP TEARS COMING INTO MY EYES FOR HIM AND OTHER PALS THAT HAVE PRECEEDED HIM AND FOR PALS THAT ARE STILL WITH US, I KEEP PRAYING EVERYDAY THAT A CURE TO THIS TREACHEROUS SICKNESS IS FOUND.

HERE IS HER MAIL:

my beloved husband of only 8 years lost his battle
with als yesterday morning at 9.30 am. his sister,
a daughter, and me were by his side.

please post on als forum for me, fiddleplayer or jimercat


Love and may God be with each and every P.A.L. and their C.A.L.S.

Jackie,
I'm so sorry about the loss of your precious Horace. You had such a short time together before his ALS diagnosis and had so many plans that could not be carried out.

My heart goes out to you. I'm glad you could be with him as he passed on. What a dramatic moment! There's nothing that can describe being with someone as they pass on. I hope you can find comfort in your role as his helper during his passing. You were there for him throughout his long journey through this illness from beginning to end.

You've already experienced the loss of a spouse and now again. I wish you strength and courage to go through this pain again.

May the coming days, weeks, and months allow you to grieve fully as you attempt to come to terms with your life alone without Horace. It's such an adjustment and so difficult to take in.

Blessings and love,
Jane

I am so sorry for the loss of Horace Jackie. The only good thing is that he is not suffering anymore. Your posts were showing the strain you were under lately and I am hoping you will get some relief now. Take care.

Jackie,

You are a very dear woman to have taken such good care of the love of your life. I am very saddened to hear that Horace has passed away.

Horace has earned his wings now and you are an angel on earth.

Please take care of yourself, especially over this Holiday season. I will be thinking of you, as we all will.

Jackie...........I am sooo sorry for confusing you with someone else. Hope you'll forgive me. I have been kinda busy working around the yard, and cleaning my garage. Tiredness makes me kinda looney! God bless you dear!

Hi Jackiemax,

I'm sorry to hear about your Horace. I had continued checking in on this site every week or two since I lost LB, over a year ago now, to see how Horace and the others are doing. I pray the memories of him will all be good for you.

Take care,

terri
