My heart is breaking for you. It's just not fair. I hate this disease! Be proud of all you did for and with him while he was here, now it's time to focus to taking care of you.

Dear Christine,

Matt was blessed to have your love to see him through his journey. You are the most amazing caregiver--all heart and strength and courage.

In the quiet moments when all the company is gone and you are feeling his absence the most, please let beautiful memories of Matt's love for you bring you comfort.

You know the times when cancer was doing the speaking. Don't give those times any power in your life. Remember his smile, his gentle touch, his loving words.

Mourn in your own time. Take your time and don't allow anyone to pressure you into taking any steps for which you aren't ready. Be gentle with yourself. I am sending hugs across the miles.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
Love you,
Sandy

My heart is with you. So sorry to read of Matt's passing but relieved as well that both of you will not have to suffer anymore with the unknown journey and all the different kinds of pains this disease brought to him, you and your family. He is at peace, you probably will be lonely and exhausted both physically and emotionally these next months but know you did everything possible for Matt in his final journey, one all of us will take someday. Time marches on and no one can stop it no matter how much we want to. I will be thinking of you in these next weeks and beyond - let us know how you are doing. Love Karen
