My final goodbye 9 Years, 1 Month ago  
Well as anyone reading my posts will know, my beloved husband John passed away peacefully on Friday 4 September 2009. Tomorrow, Wednesday 7 October his younger brother Brian, his wife Anne and myself are going to scatter John's ashes high up in the Northumberland hills. He liked fishing in that area and loved the sunshine on his face and being able to see the military jets flying across the sky carrying out training sortees so we feel that this is the right resting place for John.

This is my final goodbye to my soulmate and the love of my life and I know my heart is full of his love and he will always be 'the wind beneath my wings. Someday we will be reunited but in the meantime I have to carry on without him and I take it one day at time as John and I have dealt with throughout this year. I know someday the pain will get easier but I will never, never forget him and the love we shared.

Goodbye my love until we meet again.

Dear Irene,

I am so glad you are able to scatter Johns ashes somewhere that he loved and that you will have family around you when you do. I hope the weather is a bit nicer for you all too.

I know many people told me in the early days after losing Damian (not to a brain tumour) that things would get easier and it was very hard for me to hear, now 4 years on I would say the tears dont happen so often and I am remembering more of the good days than the tough ones but rather than better I would say things are different...I go through patches where everything still seems so fresh yet on other days I may only think of him once or twice...I firmly believe that he has walked with me the last 4 years and helped me through, sounds strange but even hearing a particular song when I am struggling or making sure when I visit somewhere close to my heart I have friends with me who understand, I am sure he has a hand in all these things.

I think I may be waffling now, sorry. Hopefully as the days and weeks go by you too will be able to remember far more good times that you both shared. I will be thinking of you tomorrow {{HUGS}}

Someone passed this to me shortly after Damian died and I thought you might find it comforting too...

"Lost love is still love. It takes a different form thats all. You cant see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those senses weaken, another heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. You hold it. You dance with it....Life has to end....love doesnt." - Mitch Albom

Dear Irene,
Thinking of you for tomorrow.
Ive always kept a close eye on your posts sometimes even without leaving a comment. You see your lovely John had exactly the same diagnosis as my dad,a right frontal GM.
The future scares me. The past 5 months have been hell and God only knows what lies ahead for the future. I hope my dad has peace like John one day. What hes going through now he doesnt deserve.
My love,thoughts and hugs are with you when you for weds.

My loving,giving and very handsome dad was 1st diagnosed with a gbm 4 in April 09.
He fought a very brave battle but only lasted 9 short months.
He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving and dedicated family on 19th January 2010.
He remains my Hero x

Hi Gilly

thanks for your kind thoughts - my prayers are with you as you don't how long your dad's battle will go on. Unfortunately the outcome will be the same as John but hopefully his final days will be peaceful and without pain as John's were. That's the best we can do for them and let them go when the time comes.

Take care of yourself and good luck.

Hi Natalya

thanks for all the messages you have posted and thanks for all the information and setting up this website - it certainly helped me to gain information and gave me an outlet for my thoughts and feelings. Knowing others out there were going through the same emotions was something that helped keep me sane.

Thank you again and I will be donating to the web site as I see you mentioned helping people with files because that is exactly what I had to do - set up a file with hospital appointments - information on treatments and drugs that John was on and it helped me keep track of what was going on.

A big thank you to the team.

take care and good luck for the future

irene xxxxx
