Hi everybody,Rex my darling husband passed away last night,he died in my arms and with his hand on my heart with me telling him he is so loved.What an honour to be with him when he took his last breath in this world. He could not fight this aggressive disease called cancer any longer. He is at peace now and will be in my heart and our families hearts forever.He was so brave and a gentleman to the end,what a wonderful role model. Thanks for all your support over these past 6 months. Remember all you wonderful carers out there..you are all 'victors not victims' Gently Gently on your journey. May the grace of your god go with you. Dotty
