My Husband John is in the Arms of an Angel

Dear Friends,

My wonderful husband John lost his courageous 22 month battle with Glioblastoma yesterday morning.  He died in my arms while we gazed into each other's eyes.  I was able to hold him and kiss him over and over again.  I was able to tell him how much I loved him and how much I will always love him.  I thanked him for loving me and for giving me everything a wife could ever want--a remarkable son, a beautiful daughter, a sweet little granddaughter and two adorable grandsons.  There are no words to describe how heartbroken I am.

Thank you to everyone on this site.  You have all been such a strong support group for me.  You can't even imagine how grateful I am to have had you to consult especially in dire times.

I will continue to pray for all of you.  I will also support brain tumor research in every way that I can.  There is so much more that needs to be done. 

Have a peaceful holiday and a new year filled with hope!

God bless,

Robin

Robin,

No, there are no words to describe how heartbroken you are.  There are also no adequate words for me to express to you how sorry I am to read that your husband passed away.   :-(

I am so moved by the fact that you were able to hold your husband and kiss him and express your love and thanks to him before he passed away.

Please know that I will be praying for you and that I do truly send you my deepest sympathy.    mavcav

Ohh Robin...

You are truly a remarkable woman...  The way you have cared for your husband, stood beside him, and loved him dearly every moment touched my heart more than I can express...

Be gentle with yourself for awhile...  Don't expect anything from yourself right now and just do what feels right to you.  Do what you need to do for yourself...  Grieve in any way that comforts you...  

You're in my thoughts and prayers, my friend...  Sarah

Dear Robin,

I was so sad and touched reading your post.  I can't even imagine how heartbroken you are. What a blessing that he died so peacefully, in your arms and that his suffering is over. 

I wish you comfort during this difficult time.
