Dear Hopeful,

I’m so sorry for your loss. Richard is in a happier place now and all the pain and suffering is over for him.

Please take good care of yourself. I lost my husband to oral cancer too, and when he passed, there were a couple of years when I felt I had PTSD. The caregiver’s role is not at all easy. I’m keeping you in my thoughts.

My condolences. He was so fortunate to have you in his life
over the years to support him not once, but twice through
such an awful ordeal. Be kind to yourself now and take care. (Hugs)
