Her ordeal is over

Post by Moonrider » August 17th, 2014, 9:07 am

I haven't been a regular participant here in the last year or so.

In the last year I've been pretty focused on supporting my wife in her battle with lung cancer. Unfortunately, she lost that battle this past Friday. I'll miss her terribly, but the alternative is having to watch her fight that terrible, devouring pain and her visible agony as she begged us to "Make it stop!"

As I put myself back together I'll probably hang around more to fill up all this free time I suddenly have . . .

See ya soon.

My condolences, cancer is a cruel disease that I wouldn't wish on anyone.

My condolences. And sorry for the delay in reply, I'm not very active lately.

My belated condolences and sympathies. Sad times, indeed. I hope you're doing well, all things considered, and apologize for not seeing this until now.

Best wishes to you, your family and friends.
