After battling this evil illness for so long, my best friend and soulmate of 50+ years has gone. He died at 8.30 yesterday morning. We have had lots of laughs over the past days remembering all the mad, happy things we all did together as a family and with many friends and although he showed no signs of hearing it all, we just hoped he would go with lots of happy memories.
He went without food or liquid for 9 days and it was awful for us to see but he was in no pain. We made sure we stayed with him 24/7 for the last days so he was never alone.
Thank you to the so many friends on this list for your messages of support.
