Hello my dear friends who have been my sanity for the last year...

On Thursday afternoon, my dear sweet husband passed away in his sleep.
We had a great morning together. Had coffee together, showered him, he sat outside while I cut the grass. He wanted to have a nap about 2pm. I checked on him at 3 and he was sleeping, I still had not heard from him at about 5 so I went to check on him. He was gone. He is still in the same comfy position so I really do believe that he had no suffereing, no anxiety and just passed in his sleep. For that I will be eternally greatful.
My house has been a whirlwind and I have not been alone for a second.
I wanted to let you know. I am thinking about you all and praying for strength for all of you.
Much love,
Cheryl

Oh Cheryl, I'm so glad he went peacefully after all you have both been through.

I hope this gives you comfort as you deal with the aftershock. You did an amazing job of thick and thin and I wish you strength now as you move into the next stage of grieving.

Hugs and much love

As everyone else said...I'm sorry for the loss of your loved one. But, I join in their joy that he is free from this insidious disease. I hope that when my time comes, I too can lay down for a nap and pass peacefully.

God bless you as you and your family grieve together.

Cheryl, so sorry- but think he will always be with you, whether it's in a song you hear, a déjà vue moment, a cloud in the sky. He is free and waiting for the day you'll be with him again. In the mean time, do what he would want. Find joy, laughter and blessings each day, amidst the tears. Hugs. Donna
