Hi. I’m David, Karen’s husband.
Unfortunately my beautiful, bubbly, kind, sweet, amazing wife Karen surrendered to cancer this morning and passed away peacefully at the local hospice. To have to tell her amazing 16-year old son Callum that she had gone, four days before Christmas, just epitomised this horrible disease.
Karen never said she was ‘fighting’ the disease or ‘battling’ it, she said she had to deal with it the best she could.
Over three years of tough, tough times have ended in her surrendering and moving on to a much more peaceful place, free of side effects, pain and sickness.
She left us both letters to be opened when she has passed away. They have been read and the contents are beautiful, just like her. It created smiles and many tears.
Your community was a great help to her, with her posts and just reading other people’s experiences. Thank you ladies, you helped her more than you’ll ever know.
A horrible, horrible day.
Look after yourselves and have a Merry Christmas.
Al the best.
