My Sweet William has passed....
My sweet husband passed on January 26th at 5:15pm last Thursday. I was right with him until the end and he held my hand right to the last. He was so strong and did not want to give up but he died an agonizing death over a 12 hour period.
I gave in and had Hospice come in the last 3 days as I could no longer lift him, etc. They were wonderful and I cannot say enough about them! They did not take his care out of my care but were so supportive and provided all the necessary supplies that I needed to care for my wonderful husband. He bonded with them also in such a short time and they wept when he passed.
Bill loved life so much and enjoyed all the simple pleasures, fishing, camping, woodworking ad infinitum. He was a very special person. He has left a great legacy to our children and grandchildren of how to live an honorable Christian life. All of our hearts are so heavy and my house is soooo empty. But even in silence, the Lord and Bill are comforting me. I am surrounded with their love.
Thanks to all of you who have followed his 7 yr. journey through Multiple Myeloma. You will never know how much you helped me when I was sad and lonely, had a question, needed a verbal pat and hug, etc. I am very grateful to all of you.
