Some very sad news

marie_ndcalAugust 10, 2013

Well, after all health issues husband Dale has had, he passed away yesterday. Combination of lung, heart, diabeties and cancer. Just too much. He has had a severe cough unable to shake it, Took him to ER and they did everything. To ICU and a wonderful nurse, Eric took over along with Dr.s It was his time and he went peacefully. DD, and 2 GD. were there with me. He was 81 and we had just had our 60th anniversary. So just keep our family in your prayers and a big box of tissues around.
Thanks

Marie, my sincere condolences. I am so sorry for your news. The next several days will be a blur, and then you will be challenged with adjusting to it all. Please let people tend to you.

Congratulations to you and Dale for a long and successful marriage. You were both blessed.

I'm so sorry about Dale. He sure had plenty of health issues and somehow his better memories will prevail over sickness. With 60 years together, that is outstanding. You are in my thoughts as you go through this sad time. ((Marie))

How do you begin to adjust -- after all those hours and days together? Your world must seem a strange place.

From your posts, I believe you are a resilient person -- someone who has known life's joys and sorrows. I know you will be able to go on, but right now...my heart weeps with you.

My sincere condolences on your loss. Like my first DH,I had the consolation that he had so many problems, that the Lord thought that enough was enough, and HE spared him more physical problems and deserved well earned relief.

You have the comfort of knowing that you stood by him and your marriage vow - " Till death do us part". A job well done.

Marie-I am so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine what you are going thru. At least Dale is no longer suffering. My Dad has cancer and hospice has been coming to their house. He is 79 and next June would have been their 60th anniversary. My Mom is really struggling emotionally during this rough time. It so nerve-wracking day to day. Please remember to take care of yourself and just take things day by day.
