Sarah 1963

I am sorry to tell you all that my darling wife Sarah passed away on Wednesday June 4th aged 50. It was a peaceful end at home with myself and our sons , Matthew and Jolyon , by her side . She fought so hard for over six and a half years and faced it all with great dignity and courage and a wonderful sense of humour . Sarah would want me to pass on her love and hope to you all , especially the good friends she made on our many trips from Norfolk to the Royal Marsden . I won't be coming on this site again , but you all make such a difference by helping each other . Keep it up ladies . Sincerest thanks , Gary .

  • I was so sad to read this it was only a few days ago I asked jan if she had heard anything about Sarah as I wondered how she was doing. She was a very brave and inspirational lady never giving up and travelling miles to stay alive for you all. I will miss her post and brilliant sense of humor. I met her also back in 2012 but sadly we did not meet up after that. Good luck to you all. I am in a similar situation and am in a hospice hoping to go back home to spend time with my young sons before the inevitable takes me too. Luck to you all Jackie xxx

  • Dear Jackie, I do hope you will be home soon to spend valuable time with your sons.You know one day we are all going to be in this situation, I dont know about you but I really believe in an afterlife and have had many experiences that are unexplained to make me believe this, I have no fear of death its only sadness at leaving my family, even knowing one day we will be together again in a better place. This world has many beautiful things and lovely people but it is also a very cruel place children and animals suffering etc. Dont mean to harp on and I want to wish you many more months of happiness with your family.

    Much Love Jenny xxxxx

  • Oh Jackie, it is so sad and I'm so sorry that you're in this situation. I hope you can go home soon, my boys are around the same age as yours and my heart aches for you. Thinking of you.

    Love Kaz xx

  • I'm so sorry to read you're in a hospice, Jackie. I've always admired your courage and determination to have fun with your Boys and make happy memories. May you soon be able to be back home with them.
