CHRISTINA........RIP DARLING

I am sorry to tell you that my beautiful wife Christina lost her fight at 10 past 4 today. The end itself came quickly and thankfully i am 99.99% confident she was not aware of what was happening.

I thank god i was there holding her hand and also one of our daughters as well.....there is very little more to add other than to say we both found good advice and some comfort from the site over the past couple of years, for that we thank you.

Christina was diagnosed with high grade serous OC in Oct 2010. We knew after her op in Dec 2010 that today was always going to come, we had just hoped it would have been further into the future.

I believe i will see her again and i cant wait for that day, she has given me 44 years of love, life and laughter and i felt blessed that we found each other back in 69.

Rambled a bit but there you go.

Laurence

    I was so sad to read your post last night and to hear of Christina's death. You were a devoted couple and I know you couldn't have done more to love and support her and to give her comfort right through to the end of her journey.

    This is a tragic time for you and your family. I remember you saying a little part of you will die with Christina. I'm sending heartfelt condolences on this tragic loss.

  • So sorry for your loss x

  • I am so sorry, I can offer no words that will help.

    This site was of help when I lost my wife recently.

    just the comfort of strangers.

    I wasn't sure whether to keep my wife's account here active, but I will for a while longer I think. If at some time in the future it would help to speak to someone who is experiencing a similar grief then feel free to PM.

    Take care of yourself, my thoughts are with you.
