Ah Rosy, what a fighter he was and so are you.

I feel for you and your family and I am very sad for you all but now he is at rest.

No more pain and distress.

What else can I say but that I am thinking of you

Rosy, I post very little but do follow some of the conversations, including your own. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I can only admire how brave you have been but know that you wouldnt see it as bravery, more just love for your husband. I know the next days, weeks, months and years wont be easy but hope that they are kind to you. Thinking of you and sending virtual hugs. God bless.

I am so very sorry for your loss, my heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

Very few words can be said that can make your pain go away right now, but try to rest as much as you can and know that David is now at peace.

My thoughts are with you now every bit as much as before.

Big virtual hugs

Oh Rosy, so sad but also some relief that he did not have a long drawn out time of suffering. In the days and weeks and months to come, you will dig in and draw strength and comfort from knowing that you absolutely did your best x

Adding my condolences. You have done a wonderful job, supporting your husband through this. My partner, too, never spoke much until the last few weeks when things went downhill dramatically. It brings the tears back, hearing of another good man gone and how it is for the wife or partner, just so hard. Remember you have lots of virtual friends here who will continue to offer support over the coming days, weeks and months, Regards,

My dear Rosy
My most sincere condolences on the sad loss of David. I can only echo the words of others that at least David's suffering was relatively short, though yours will continue I do agree that no one could have done more than you did to help him. Please take care of yourself Rosy, the days ahead with be very hard.

With my love

Here we are having lost another brother we have smiled laughed and cried along each journey
We have hoped against hope held each others hand and given support above and beyond
Tears in my eyes whilst I try to find the words to help but knowing that any words can not take away the pain
Our hearts they ache for all that leave us and are strong for the new ones that join us

I have been overwhelmed by the messages I have received from you all, longer term members and new members alike. Thank you! I did smile at the 'hey up duck' from Nidge!

We are now awaiting the end of a long Bank Holiday weekend before we can move forward with arrangements but have filled the time with poring through photo albums and David's very extensive I-tunes lists. Lots of visitors, flowers (no vases left now), tears and laughter.

So far David's niece has introduced us to her best friend who is an independent celebrant and sounds perfect for David who was not a churchgoer. And we have pinpointed Rick Wakeman's Bowie tribute of Life on Mars which we both really liked when we heard it on the radio on the way back from hospital one day. Little steps...

Must find a shop that's open tomorrow for more tissues

Rosy

Oh Rosy!


I have not checked here for a while, and came straight to see how David was, to be met with this news. You must be so very devastated but so very relieved too.

I shall be thinking of you, and hoping your family and friends are providing you with the strength you need to get through.

I almost feel like I know you.
Sending lots of love

I read somewhere that your brain knows how much pain you can take when grieving and that when we feel numb that's our brain wrapping emotions in 'bubble wrap' until we can deal with how we feel. Don't know if it helps, but it sort of gave me some comfort and that's why we are just taking a day at a time for now.

A handy hint for anyone who loses a loved one. If they are the policy holder on the car insurance and you are a named driver, you are not covered if they die! I've been given so many information packs for the bereaved - even the bank is telling me how to deal with my feelings - but no-one told me I was driving uninsured for nearly 2 weeks!

It is now sorted but thank goodness I didn't have an accident in the meantime. Otherwise I feel like I am in limbo at the moment. Not feeling like I thought I would - I guess I'm still in disbelief. All the time David's rucksack is sitting on the chair in the kitchen, I can believe that he is still here. No-one is allowed to move it! The funeral is not until the 18th. I was very touched by my daughter insisting on being a pall bearer. All the arrangements are pretty much in place so we are considering a couple of days away by the sea next week to recharge the batteries and be ready for the 18th. 

My main feeling at the moment is just that I am so so tired.

Just to let you know that I have been thinking of you and your family at this time. I hope that you can feel refreshed and less tired after your break away before the 18th.
Thanks also for the info re insurance.

Wishing you well,

Hi Rosy, that information was probably one of the most important - and to be honest I wouldn't have thought about it - its the practical things that really do matter as well.  How touching that your daughter is doing that at the funeral.  Lovely idea to pop down to the coast for a bit of a break, goodness knows you deserve that.  Will be thinking of you on the 18th and I am sure that everything will go off really well.  In the meantime, take care xx

Rosy,

If there is anything that I can do to help you with the practicalities of sorting out David's estate you only need to ask. I'm a pretty logical person and it might be that there are things that are stumping you that I could help you resolve via a phone call or two. For instance, I've been looking into all the practicalities of obtaining probate recently. I'm not an expert but I understand a hell of a lot more now than I did a few weeks ago.

If you think I can help I will PM you my telephone number.

A lovely idea of your daughter to be a pall bearer. Do all the things you want to do too say goodbye in your own way. Don't think you need to stay strong for others and keep emotions under control,just let them go,it might sound strange but make sure you grieve for David.

Your story has touched the hearts of so many of us on here.

Look after yourself.

Thanks Chris

Hi rosy
So much to think about and do during a high time of emotion. Am sure it's only natural to make an odd mistake along the way. No harm done!
Make the most of your short break. Hope all goes well on the 18th.
