My Darling Husband is gone

kayjonesApril 22, 2007

I know some of you were praying, along with me and our family, on my husband's behalf, and we thank you SO MUCH! Gary passed away, from the deadly disease called pancreatic cancer, last Tuesday night at 11:51 pm. This is the most HORRIBLE death imaginable!!!!

We are taking it one day at a time, but I still call out to him and think of him constantly. I miss him so much - it's all the little things he did for my stepson and me, all the things we did together - WOW, this is tough!

No more suffering for him.

Tough time for you, you are right to take each day as it comes.

All the best to your and your stepson.

I am SO sorry, I prayed SO hard for him. I suffered with my darling through pancreatic cancer and it is horrible. I am crying for you, I don't know what else to do. I will keep you in my prayers.
With love and hugs,

Kay, how good of you to thank us at this time. By all means talk to your husband all you like. Write to him if that feels good. And be open to whatever signs he may be able to give you.

You have our sympathy.

Kay, My husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 5 days before he was to retire. He was 62. It came out of no where. He passed 9 1/2 months later. I can relate to all that you and yours have been through. Please accept my heartfelt prayers and thoughts. (((HUGS))) Carol

Carol, I am so sorry that you had to lose your husband to this horrific disease. You are right - it is a killer in the night - doesn't present itself until it is ready to kill.

Mavis, you and I have already chatted, and again - I am so terribly sorry that you lost your husband to this greedy cancer.

Instead of worrying about global warming, and it's effects on humanity a thousand years from now, how come they don't concentrate on saving PEOPLE NOW?!

I think priorities are a bit mixed up!

Carol,I want to add my condolences. How are you doing? I know you feel like your heart has been ripped right out of you.Kay calls it a greedy cancer, it sure is. My husband died of pancreatic cancer at 62, 6 1/2 months ago, I had him for 18 months after his diagnosis but he suffered much.We are here if need to talk to us, it helps when someone else knows what you are going through.

Kay, How are you doing? I pray for everyone on this forum for healing of our broken hearts and for the pain to ease.

God Bless, Mavis (

Mavis, thank you for asking about us. Yesterday was a 'boo-hoo' day, wrought with frustrations. SO FAR, today is going well. I just take it as it comes and deal with it, sometimes dealing ok and most times, not. I just pray a lot and keep as busy as I can. Hugs to you. HOW ARE YOU?
