He was only 63 and had liver cancer metastized to his lung. They just gave him 6 months. Well yesterday I brought him to ER, as he was having trouble breathing. He never got better. About 10:30 his heart rate dropped to 22. I whispered to him to go and be with Rachel. 2 minutes later he was gone. Peacefully and no fighting. But jeeze I'm lost. It's just Lance & I now. I don't know how much more loss I can endure!! Please send prayers.

Jamie, first - my sincere condolences to you and your family.
I lost my first husband to cancer 12 years ago.
To this day, I thank God for his peaceful passing, and the honor of being able to be with him when he left this world - and you will have this comfort, also.

You saw him through this, and completed your marriage vows.
A job well done.

I'm sure you feel a measure of relief...it's normal.

You have a new life to build, but that doesn't mean you forget him - just that you go on.

God Bless you.

Deepest sympathy, Jamie. Take some comfort that he went quickly, in peace, with your blessing in his heart.

 o
RE: My husband lost his battle with cancer.

What a horrible experience, Jamie, to lose one's most beloved and best friend ... one feels as though the lights had just gone out.

May you find some comfort as you relate to family, loved ones and friends through the difficult days ahead, remembering the many things that were part of your lives together.

And may you find peace building quietly in your heart, trusting that things are well with him and Rachel ... and may they become well with you and Lance, also.

 o
RE: My husband lost his battle with cancer.

Jamie, I whole heartily empathize with you. I almost didn't reply to your post, but I kept coming back, knowing that I needed to.

My DH lost his battle against cancer on December 16th., 30 years ago this coming Sunday. He was 62.

I had not made any preparations for Christmas at that time. Three days before Christmas I picked up my 2 grandchildren and we put up the tree and went Christmas shopping. I some how knew that if I didn't have Christmas that year I would never have Christmas again, and that was not fair to my family. My neighbor called when she saw the tree lights on, and told me that I had just made her Christmas. We did have a Christmas, but no, it was not as usual. We continue on, as he would have wanted us to. DD and I talked this morning about our plans for this year. Those two Grands are now grown and have jobs and in-laws that have to be worked into my schedule, or mine into theirs.

It is still very hard, I'm tearing up as I type, but I wish for you strength as you move on, knowing that we are not in control of these things, but moving on with memories that never die.

I hope you and Lance will be able to celebrate Christmas this year and many more years to come.

Blessings,

Sue
