Farewell to my amazing husband

Geoff passed away yesterday afternoon.

His passing was a blessing and it was an honor and privilege to have been by his side during and at his time of death.

He has not gone far away because he will always be in my heart and the hearts of those who loved him.

I was so very lucky to have found this intelligent, articulate, funny, loving, caring and amazing man.

Now is the time to remember our incredible 20+ years together.

Dottie Lottie I am so sorry that you have lost the one you love. However he is free from this awful condition now. I am sure you feel glad he is free but heartbroken that he's gone.

Just remember we are always here for you. God bless to you and your family and prayers for your husband too.

So sorry to hear that.

You are right to hang on to the memories and acknowledge the good fortune to have met such a special man.

I find those memories strengthen over time.

Thinking of you in the next days.

Dear DottieLottie,

I’m so sorry for loss. I joined this forum last summer so I’m a bit of a newbie. Sometimes it’s hard for me to read about all of the sufferers who have lost their battle with this dreadful disease and I think to myself how fortunate that they are no longer suffering. Your love was lucky to have had you by his side.

At the exact time that I was reading your post a bird flew into our glass window and landed on the hard surface of our patio. I wrapped the tiny little thing up with tissue and put him on top of a shrub. I wasn’t sure if he was going to make it but I kept telling him to snap out of it. Sure enough, after the shock of knocking itself out, he moved it’s wings and then eventually he flew away. I’m telling you this because of how random life is and how fitting for this to happen just as I’m reading about your story.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to just fly away. But then I realize that one day I too will miss all of the new norms that come with PSP/CBD.

Thinking of you and sending hugs.

Xoxo from I SewBears 💐

Dear Pam, I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Even though our loved ones are so very ill and limited and we know it's coming, they are still alive while we're caring for them and worrying about them....and we have life with them! To pass from this to death is a profound change and loss. Yes, gratitude does help!

I send my heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Be good to yourself now. ❤️❤️❤️

My condolences D0ttieL0ttie, the next few weeks will be very busy but soon it will be your time, to look to the future, as you say, remembering all the good times but hopefully having many more happy years. He will always be with you but life can be very good after PSP.

So sad when your loved one finally leaves you after such a mammoth struggle. My heart goes out to you Dottie. It's a year today since Ben left this world and I'm have a quiet day of contemplation, trying to get passed all the suffering he went through and remember him before PsP struck, not easy but I'll try.

Sending lots of love and a hug.

Do take time out to care for yourself now and accept offers of help and support.
