Fellow warriors, he’s gone. My sweet loving and loved husband Barry. Over 30 years with him. He passed Saturday afternoon July 25th. It looked like we had more time, he was ready to start a new medicine, went in hospital with nausea, expected to be home in days, and then...suddenly it went bad. We couldn't even bring him home for the last day. Diagnosed August 2019 with extensive bone mets, symptom-free over seven months despite resistance to his meds. He was extra sweet during his illness. Daughter Nadine was with us at the hospital, we were with him when it happened, stayed overnight Friday the 24th with him. She gave him music on the mandolin during Thursday through Saturday, I sang, we all held hands. Son Erek and his dear wife Kate were nearby but couldn't get in. Erek Kate and Nadine left last Sunday Aug 9th.
I don't know what I'll do without him. We were together 30 years, I would have loved the opportunity for 30 more.
I thank everyone for your loving support and community. For all of you I hope for the best of times even as you battle this awful disease.
