After four pneumonias in six weeks, John was given morphine every two hours and was pain free and comfortable for the first time in a long, long time. He never woke up. His mind was clear, though, and he knew he was surrounded by people who loved him very much. Fly, John, fly.

Please accept my condolences. You both fought a brave battle and I am happy that he was comfortable at the end. It is now time for you to rest and regroup. You will soon realize how exhausted you are and what YOU have been through. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done - not everyone can do what you did for another human being. Focus on the good times and the love you two had for each other. We are here for you.

My condolences to You and yours on the passing of John. My G-d's Angels guide and comfort you in these days ahead. My they warm the cold spots you may encounter and light the way your feet tread. It was a fight well fought and a struggle well borne. Take time to rest and heal, cry when you must and laugh when you can. Hold up Your head and take pride in the fact that not only did you do a wonderful job in caregiving, both You and John in the midst of this horrendous disease found it in you both to take time to reach out and help lighten this burden for others involved in their own struggle. Your kind guidance with words and helpful hints, your compassionate "I know I've been there's" have helped many more than you can imagine at this time. Again My condolences.

May you heal and find peace in your heart knowing you did all you could and were there for your husband until the end. What you have done is above and beyond, and you deserve to rest now. May you be blessed with sound sleep and healing rest.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope it's a comfort to you that he passed easily. Take care of yourself.

Thank you. Cleaning house seems to help temporarily cover the aching void. Gosh I miss him, not the sufferer but the man he used to be. But even I would not want him to go through this again.

I am late in offering my sympathies & I apologize for that. I am so sorry for your loss. My mom was in the hospital when John passed & I wasn't checking the forum much. Mom passed on April 8, 2010. Like you, I miss her a great deal but would never want her to have to suffer like she had the past few years.

May God watch over you & keep you in His care.
