    Even though I believe in eternal life, tears are streaming down my face for you and your daughter, but your DH is gloriously at peace. Please let us know how you and your daughter are doing. I think we've all come to feel very close to you. I have no idea of protocol here but just wanted so badly to know WHERE you were, could I get there? I'd done anything to lighten your burden, physically. No one could have carried the psychological burden for you, no matter how much we want to.

    oh my dearest (((joey))),

    my heart aches so heavily for your loss yet it comforts me to know that you saw your husband as he left ever so peacefully.

    i have been a hospice nurse for many yrs and can actually say that you have been such a total inspiration to me and i'm sure, so many others. your spirit showed remarkable courage, determination yet touching sensitivity.

    you, your daughter and dan shall remain in my heart for a long, long time.

    and thank you, for sharing with us, this incredibly poignant journey.

    I am so sorry you have lost this special man. I am so glad you had that last time with him and had that absolutely certain sense of his peace. You and your family are still in my prayers. I wish I could give you a huge, real hug. I am not as eloquent as so many people here. Thinking of you, and of your husband, and of your daughter, for each of you in different ways I think of that verse, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith"- you are amazing and strong. This thread is written testimony to one of the realest love stories I have ever read- of all three of you. I wish there was more I could do for you. There are no words I can say right now, than once again I am so sorry.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what you're going through right now. Your husband was so blessed to have you there fighting for him and I know he felt your presence right up until the end. I'm relieved to see that you didn't have to make any decisions that you didn't want to, and that he and his body told you it was time to go.

    Please take care of yourself and that special daughter of yours. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.

    ((((((((Joey and dd)))))))) I am so sorry. Dan's passing sounds so peaceful. I'm so glad you were able to be there and that you didn't have to make any decisions. I hope you can feel the presence of us with you, even if we can't be there physically. Don't forget you aren't alone - you have all of us here. Take care of yourself and your wonderful daughter - you're in my prayers.
