    My wife of 47 years is coming to the end of her battle with pancreatic cancer. As the disease was starting to claim her she suffered a stroke and can no longer speak. She is in hospice care and is day to day. It’s a terrible burden and difficult to process. My family and friends have been there for me. Very hard to be in the house alone. In the process of making arrangements for her. She was a woman of great faith and is at peace.

    Man, that's rough, my sincere apologies for the situation you find yourself in.

    The only thing I can do is wish you strength.

    This is so sad Bob. I went something similar 3-years ago and we lost my brother after his short 46-years life.

    He was surrounded by family and friends until the end and it was a sad way to say goodbye.

    But now we look back and rejoice his life. We remember his smile, the times he made us laugh amd times when he didn't judge but offered advice.

    I still miss him but he lived 46 wonderful years, was a fantastic brother, a wonderful husband and an amazing father.

    After 47-years together, you'll have lots of memories to celebrate your wife's smile and happy times.

    Stay strong but you'll get.

    Thoughts and prayers, Peter

    It is hard to lose a loved one. I lost my girlfriend almost two years ago. I don’t envy what you are going through. The worst of it will pass but it is hard. It changed me.
