Angels Do Have Wings to Fly!

Angels Do Have Wings to Fly!

It is with a sad and heavy heart that I write to you tonight.

On Saturday, Feb 11th, Guy lost his battle with Corticobasal Degeneration.

It was a very peaceful passing, I know he

is in no more pain, and is able to rest peaceably.

The end was a long ten days. On the 2nd we decided it was time to

stop the feeding and drinking. I think that Guy knew that was where

he was headed as he didn't put up a fight about it. He had been choking

so much on his food and drinks the last two weeks and was eating less

and less. But each time he would try to swallow I could see the fear of

choking in his eyes as he tried to control that which he had no longer any

control over.

It's been a busy last few days, and I know that there will come a point where I will just sit down and breathe. It is then I will surely feel that he is gone. I keep in my mind that he is no longer suffering, no longer in pain, no longer drawn in from his muscles tightening up. I hold on the knowledge and faith that I will see him again one day and that he will be the Guy I knew before this disease took over. He will be walking, talking, and holding my hand. Oh what a glorious day that will be!

Staying strong with Gods hand in mine,


John 14: 1-6

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

  • Note: Good to see the spam post was removed and my note is now unnecessary.

    "Your post is inappropriate for this thread. The original posting is about a man who was taken from us by corticobasil degeneration and your bot-like post and resembles internet spam - resembles is being kind. I have looked into the site you reference and they post no - zero, compelling evidence to substantiate your claims. I am an advocate for using vitamins, minerals, herbs... to treat disease but would not recommend the site you are posting because of the lack of any scientific evidence, articles...."

    To vsm0001, my condolences for your loss.

  • My thoughts are with you xxoo

  • vsm0001 I am so sorry for your loss, Valerie. I pray that you will have peace, knowing that he is in a better place. My husband spoke to us through our 5 year old granddaughter, just moments after he passed. She came into the room and took my daughters hands. She said, don't cry Mommy, Pop-Pop said to tell you he's in a GOOD place. Although it was devastating, that has kept me going for the last 15 years. Many hugs,


  • So sorry for your loss. God bless you.

  • Dear Valerie

    May God be your comfort and strength as you grieve the loss of your loved one.

    Thank you for all your love, care and dedication to Guy during his illness.

    Carers are the most special people.
