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

Dear Gary

Just heard the news of Sarah and am deeply saddened. We went through such a lot together at the Marsden.

You and the boys , her home and your dog were her world. She was a brave lady and always so positive.

With much love you and those wonderful boys
