We lost our battle Oct.2,2012. We made it a year and it was the best year of my life. I will continue to pray for you all.

Hi Holly, I'm so sorry that you and your husband lost the battle with the horrible cancer. I'm quite new here but I read the daily message board and I'm really quite impressed with what all you people are going through and yet keep a positve attitude. May God bless you and bring you peace and direction as you go on with your life putting one foot in front of the other. We lost our daughter in September (not from cancer --she had a heart and lung condition) and I know how painful accepting it is. I will say a special prayer for you.

My husband seems to be reaching the end stage of his Stage IV colon cancer. I'll post about that separately.
I don't want to go off subject here, but I really want to reach out to skately. My heart goes out to you. I almost feel as if I can empathize. Six or seven years ago, when I worked for a photography co., we took the class pictures of the Sandy Hook Elementary School (obviously not the same children who died on Friday -- they hadn't been born yet). I've been so sad lately, but had not yet shed a tear.
As soon as I saw your post, everything hit me at once. I broke down into tears for the first time since I heard of that devastating massacre of the little 1st graders, your heartbreaking loss and for the imminent loss of my husband. I know that tears are the best remedy. It's a cleansing process.
May God be with you as you struggle with your pain.

I am sorry Holly. I lost my husband on Oct. 3, 2012, after 3 years and months battling the stage 4 colon cancer. I will pray for you. Its very difficult.
