    Bob, you are in my and my family's prayers. May you be comforted through this time. You will get to be with your beloved wife again.

    We went through it with my dad in 2015. Before I married he was my best friend, a brilliant gentle, strong man. He was an environmental scientist. What took him was a series of micro strokes that caused aphasia and eventually took his life. Still and all, he lived and died with grace. I was asked by my mom to write his obit and give his eulogy. I described him as "a man at peace with the world and at peace with his God," and "Simper Coram Deo" (always before the throne of God). His peace gave me peace. May you have peace as well.

    Bob

    An agonizing but important feature of a forum as old and robust as this one, is its another reminder that we all will have to weather these same storms. These thread pop up often, and they're always gutting to see. Luckily we can do it together. Don't forget to check in often in the months to come. We're a community that's here for you.

    Sending love and strength your way Bob, I'm sorry you and her have to go through this, circle of life and all that.

    You will have many fond memories to draw from, just don't wallow in the despair and pain of losing a loved one for too long, lean on friends and other family members, and get active in order to get your mind off the subject if it's causing you emotional pain.

    Stay strong, we're here for you.

    Praying for you and your loved ones.

    I just recently joined the TDPRI, but it appears that there are a lot of prayer warriors on here who are concerned for you. Glad I joined.

    I've been there and done that with my late wife who had lung cancer. Just live one moment at a time and do what that moment requires. Hopefully, you've both done the best you could for each other and there's nothing left unsaid between you.

    Sending good vibes to both of you.

    I pray for you and yours to find strength when you need it, but also comfort for your loss. Bless you.

    Peace and I will pray for the strength needed.
    47 years....that is just heartbreaking.
    May she rest well and the family find comfort.
