I am writing this on behalf of my husband Tim, who passed away at 4:30 this afternoon, 13 March 2012. The cancer was far more advanced and aggressive than either of us realised and he just couldn't do it anymore. Thank you to all those people who offered him support and words of advice, courage and wisdom. He appreciated it. Good bye Helen

My deepest condolences for your loss of Tim. Words at a time like this seem inadequate. From one who lost their soul mate just before christmas last year,I would like to say that you are not alone in how you are feeling. Many on this site from their own loss, understand the depth of your grief. wombat4

Dear Helen, So sorry for your loss, there are no words that can adequately comfort you and your family at this time. Take each day at a time and remember, Tim would want you to go on and make each new day count for him as well. Prayers for you at this difficult time. Find strength, in the memories and let them comfort you, with the blessing of the time you had together. Sam
