Battle Is Over


My husband Mitch passed away January 12th after fighting prostate cancer for 5 1/2 years. I was glad he was able to stay home and that I was holding his hand when he died. I pray soon there will be a cure for this awful disease.

Oh noooo, my deepest sympathy for the loss of Mitch. Another Brother taken by d@mn PCa

Rest in Peace Sir and suffer no more😭



Darn, saw the title and teared up again... seems that lately I see someone I have followed during my four years with this disease has passed... Bless you for supporting him to the end. I know my wife will probably have to do this also one day. God bless all the wives that see us through to the end... His pain is over and now you must battle to get through your grief. Remember all the good times and laugh with your family, it really does help... Doug

I'm so very, very sorry. May you find find peace knowing his pain has ended.

I feel such sorrow, especially on this Sabbath Day. This day in Shul, we pray the Prayer for the sick, and those that have passed. I Pray, the Prayer recited this day in all Synagogues today somehow reaches you, and includes Mitch.I would like to just say 'Shalom Ha Gadol'---> this means a great peace--a peace for you that transcends time. This is a peace few know---may it cover you spiritually.


He is resting in a place ...where there is no pain, no suffering and no misery.He is one with God his comforting embrace.

My deepest heartfelt condolences go out to you . This is so sad news. 🌸🌻🌼🌈🦋❤️❤️❤️

So sorry. It’s a shame something can’t click for us for many years. Going from one treatment to another takes it’s toll on all of us. And most of it is a bad quality and experience. God bless him, he’s at eternal peace

I’m so sorry for your loss. Please take good care of yourself

So sorry for your loss.

Thanks for letting us know. Sometimes the simple act of holding hands is the greatest thing one human can do for another.

No more pain and no more suffering for him. I hope your grieving process is surrounded by support and love. I think leaving my wife one day will be extremely hard on her like all those we leave behind. Xoxo
