    Ahhh... Been there done that. Pancreatic cancer. Watching your wife die is very very hard work.
    You don't realise how hard until it is all over. Those months of running on adrenaline really take it out of you.
    Feel free to spend a couple or three months feeling sorry for yourself and generally drinking too much and being a bad person.
    After three months... despite everything you have to start putting yourself back together. Life goes on.

    Thanks to you all for the kindness you’ve shown. One of the reasons I enjoy this forum is the human side of the members. The next few days will be challenging for our family and all the positive energy is appreciated.

    Regards to all,

    Bob

    I am very sorry.

    I have been there, in other forms, but similar.

    You can't do anything about it...but that's OK. Just let yourself feel whatever it is you are feeling. None of those feelings are wrong. Don't try to "be strong" or push your feelings down. They will come in out bad ways later, without you realizing it, if you don't allow them to hit you head on now. Just let yourself be hurt by it. It will be better for you in the long run.

    Best of luck. My heart is with you. You life will never be the same from here forward...but that doesn't mean it will be bad in the end. Just different.

    I can’t imagine the darkness and anguish you must be experiencing right now. Especially with the virus and everything, it must be extremely difficult.

    There is no way to properly process what is going on, but she will live on as real to you as the 47 years you have had with her after she is gone in your memories.

    I’ve been with my wife for 17 years and she is also a woman of tremendous faith. I am trying to never take a moment for granted with her or my kids.

    Hang in there. Blessings from central MA

    I can't imagine this, even after only 30 years of marriage.

    Stay strong and try to stay positive, or do whatever it takes to cope, i honestly wish you the best.
