Oh Jill, My heart goes out to you and your loved ones at this time. Cancer is such a brutal force that relentlessly targets our loved ones. What a valiant fighter your dear husband must have been and such a wonderful man to have you beside him throughout his battle. His memory and spirit will live forever in your hearts and through those he touched. Hugs and blessings to you and your loved ones Jill and please be gentle with yourself atm....I have heard that for the past 2 months but finally get it - take all the time you need and be mindful of your needs (which you might have pushed aside over the past months). x Amanda.
