I miss Dave so much

Dave went home to be with God on August 14. 2012. I miss him so much.

We knew that he was going to leave us but no matter how sick

Our loved ones get I guess we still find it difficult to deal with them

Leaving us. I miss his smile and hugs so much and he was able to do

These things right up to the end. How do those of us left behind

Deal with our loss. Does this get better? My heart is broken.

  • Hi Judy, your family's story touched my heart so much when I first found this forum because it seemed so similar to ours. I am so very sorry Dave had to leave you this soon. Please take care of yourself. Prayers for peace for you and your daughter,


  • So sorry for your loss. Your faith is precious, cherish it and the thoughts of him at peace x

  • Dear Judy,

    I have no idea what to tell you - I have experienced the loss of my Grandparents and my in-laws but never someone as close as a life partner. It is so hard at first, the sense of loss overwhelming but it does ease with time.

    All I can say is that your PSP "family" are here for you and thinking of you x

    sending much love and hugs

  • Hi Judy...I know exactly how you feel. Frank left us on St George's Day 23 April & I'm finding it very hard. The first few seconds when I wake seem ok then I remember he isn't here. Unlike Dave, Frank hadn't been able to cuddle me or smile or talk to me for quite a while. His decline was very rapid at the end & I'm sure he decided that he'd had enough. It was a blessing in the end although very hard. He went peacefully in his own bed at home, surrounded by family & friends so he knew he was very much loved. I am a strong person so always said that I would cope. How wrong was I !!!!!! Perhaps this is also because our daughter-in-law died exactly 3mths later. We hadn't really been able to grieve properly for Frank as our energies were needed elsewhere in Allison's fight against the brain tumour. Unfortunately we now have to grieve for them both. My time is not my own as I have a motherless 9yr old Grandson. Sorry about the rambling but I'm having a bad day today & am typing this through the tears which are running freely at the moment.

    Sorry again as this should be about you not me. My thoughts are definitely with you. Just keep remembering that Dave is in a far better place, free from pain & distress. I'm sure it will get easier but I don't know when that will be.

    Love to you. Take care & try to keep smiling. Love Hazel B xx

  • I am so sorry that you have had to go through so much. I can only imagine what you are going through. I hope that you are able to remain strong but also have time to grieve or yourself. My heart goes out to you. God bless.

  • hazelb, bless you as you go through all this after losing your dear Frank. I know your heart breaks for your grandson. He is so very young to endure so much loss,

    Thoughts and prayers. xx

  • I don't know if we will get over losing our special loved ones. I think we learn, eventually to live with the pain and try to make some kind of life. But what do I know? I wake up some mornings trying to think "business as usual" and then other mornings, "What will I do?" I don't know and I don't think anyone knows. What I think is that our loved ones would not want us to give up living but make the best of the good things we have, children, grandchildren and family.

  • Hi Judy & HazelB

    My thoughts and prayers are with you both. Please be strong I know that's what your loved ones would want. I say that intellectually and yet I know when my Dad passes which could be any day know I can't imagine the unbearable sadness I will feel. They say time heals all things let's hope "they" are right. Take care of yourselves this has been a long hard journey and you are to be admired for your love and compassion.



  • Having lost a first wife to another rare disease I can say with time, friends, and family you will slowly heal. Although it was 24 years ago I still think of my first wife and shed a tear. I'm remarried now 22 years but memories are forever. God bless you and comfort you and the family.
