Marsha, I am so sorry to hear about Tom. I'm glad he was able to be at home, surrounded by his family for his last moments. You both fought so hard against this, I hope you realize what a blessing it was for him to have you with him.
I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

Oh Marsha, I've only just popped back onto here and I'm saddened to hear the news about your DH. Such a brave man and faught hard through your strength for him.
I do hope you found the grace and dignity you so wished for your DH on his passing, I know you will have.
Thoughts go out to you and your girls, even though its been a little longer for me to reply

I am just seeing this and I am so very sorry Marsha . Sadly, I don't get to this board as much as I should, but I have tried to followed some of your threads about your brave battle. Your soul mate, Tom, was a true example and fought such a long and heroic battle with you by his side all the way . My heart truly goes out to you as I send prayers for strength, peace and hope, during these difficult days for you and your family. Godspeed your family dear, may Tom rest in peace as he smiles and guides you all from above.
Keep the faith ^i^ Sandie

I like others have followed your story over time.
Having you and your girls there with him at home comforted all of you, I am sure.
Know that you and your family will be in my prayers.

Marsha, You just popped into my mind, so I said an extra prayer. Thought I'd let you know the prayers didn't end when Toms struggle did. Hope you are feeling all the prayers going your way still.

My loss was so profound to me, yet I've always felt it could be much worse with loss of a spouse or child. I apologize for the tunnel vision, and more profusely for your loss. I haven't started reading the story, not sure I want to, but 5 years sounds to me like both a curse and a blessing.
I do remember noting a couple sigs with Dizzers who had passed and how sad it seemed that someone who lived the joy of DW/DL should be forced to part with it...and now we deal more directly with it.
I will not pretend to have great words of comfort and wisdom. I just hope his legacy will be carried on as I feebly attempt to carry on my mother's.
