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
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."
