Your grandson looks perfect. Thank you for the update, best wishes for Christmas and beyond.
A sense of humour is essential too, keep it going!

Good to hear from you Julie! ...

I used to follow your Trevor's journey....even though his diagnosis and treatment path was far removed from mine.. 

Enjoy your Christmas

Best Wishes to you and your family

Hi Julie

Great to see your post. Great to see a photo of your grandson as well.

I have missed your humour in the posts. Trevor and you certainly had a journey but your humour, support and commitment were inspiring and Tevorvwas very lucky to have you by his side.

I’m glad to hear your humour is returning and I look forward to that

Take care

Hi Julie,
Reon looks great!
In time he will get to know what a great family he has been born into and understand what a powerful man his grandfather was.

I must say a thanks to you, it was a notification from this thread that has brought me back into the fold, I've been away for a long time.
Cheers m'dear!

All the best from the Southend boy,

How lovely to hear from you again Julie and what a handsome G son you have. I too followed Trevor's journey and your strength and humorous posts were an inspiration! Sadly, I lost my younger brother to advanced prostate cancer last month and am still finding it a difficult to be up-beat and positive at times. However, I have the imminent arrival of our 8th grandchild to look forward to!!

Have a great Christmas and and happy new year

Glad to hear from you Julie and learn about the new addition to the family. Those of us familiar with Trevor's story and your posts will never forget. Wish you well.

Hello Julie, i dont post on here often but read yours and Trevors journey when i joined earlier this year . You and your family are an inspiration to all of us . And you make me feel very humble.

I hope you are all coping well.

Dear Julie, I am a wife, a long time reader but not a poster to the forum.  But I felt I must reply when I saw your new post. I don't think you will ever know how much your posts have meant to me and others over the years.  They often gave me the strength to think that I could keep going, and more than that they often made me laugh.  I pleased to hear that your sense of humour is returning, and that you and the boys are managing.  I've thought of you so often over the past year.   May there be lots of smiles from Reon to brighten Christmas and the years ahead.

Oh my Lord; girl you gone all soft on me????

Second Christmas without T - it will be easier than last year in a way but also more poignant. I see you on FB finding your new normal and I know he would be so very, very proud of you xxx

A Happy thread a continuation of life Trevor’s latest granddaughter has been born . And named C C Boothe . CC is named after her grandmother, Trevor’s mum who came to England on the Windrush .,Trevor’s mum was Clarice Cleopatra Boothe and for short always introduced her self with a white gloved Hand shake as CC Boothe .

prostate cancer ended his life but did not end his legacy .

How lovely - we have a little one named after his grandad Stan.

Congratulations to you all xxx

Lovely to hear from you and congratulations on your wonderful news. Keep going gal.

Thanks Chris

Congratulations on another addition to the family Julie. I hope you are OK and it's nice that you keep in touch. Sadly, we have lost more members and others have joined more recently who will not know of Trevor's journey, so it's good that your posting may lead them to learn about him and indeed you. As I have said a number of times over the years, it is often the wife, partner or offspring that researches and supports their man who has PCa and others affected by this rotten disease too,

Wonderful News, Julie. 

Trevor would have so proud (I'm sure he is) of not only the new granddaughter, but of all of you in the way you have coped and continue to live your lives.

Lovely news -  our rector recently reminded us that we go on in our children and grandchildren and this is wonderful for all your family.x

Think of Trevor often - even some time after his posting - an inspiration of a man, cool headed, logical and without an ounce of self pity or panic.

Rest in piece Trevor, your trials and hard times are over.
