My wife passed away 4weeks ago.She suffered for 15months with a Gliosacoma,which is a terminal brain tumor.She was a remarkable lady who battled this insidious disease to the end.
After 39 years together it is hard to come to terms with her loss.I saw her as a caring,loving,
human being.She devoted her life in caring for dementia and alzheimers patients as a Aged Carer.I saw those who had worked with my wife crying as they told me what a wonderful human being she was.
I cry a lot and think she will walk in one day.I miss her so much, but I know she is in heaven where only good human being go. It's difficult to believe that she would be anywhere else,even though she was not religious .How you live on earth as it is in heaven.She was a good human being who fore filled her roll on this planet.
I will never forget my mate who played an important part in my life.

A shared experience
by: Jo

Dear Owen, I am so sorry for your loss. I feel I can understand some of what you and your dear wife have been through. You see I lost my dear husband in May, he had the same horrible condition as your wife, a glioblastoma multiforme of the brain. It really is a nightmare of an illness. My husband fought bravely throughout and gradually it took his independence, his mobility, his speech and finally his life. He fought for well over 2 years. How can we possibly recover from seeing our loved one suffer and fade away before our eyes? I don't know Owen, I really don't. Grief is the price we pay for love. I am sure Owen that your dear wife is with you and sending you strength to go on until you meet again. God bless you.

Owen I am sorry for your loss of your wife from brain cancer. I lost Steve my husband of 44yrs. marriage 8 weeks ago to lung cancer caused by working with asbestos. Steve knew he was going to die. This is hard to watch someone die slowly. The only good thing is our loved one is not suffering any more. Steve had a very painfull cancer journed for over 3 years. His pain at the end was so severe it was unbearable to watch. It is a very lonely place to be now. Living without our spouse. I cry a lot but it comes spontaneously for all of us and we cannot avoid this. It is part of what we are supposed to do when living with this awful grief. I have a sister living in Queensland. She flew over to England to be with me when I lost Steve 8 weeks ago. I miss her presence with me. But I talk to her on Skype all the time. I have 3 sisters here in England and are very supportive. I hope that you have family and friends supporting you. As it does help you over the worst of the initial days after the funeral. Everyone in our family separate to deal with their grief in their own way. It becomes an even lonlier place to be whilst adjusting to our new life without our loved one. I wish you better days ahead and hope that life improves for you daily until you find yourself in a better place with your grief. Best wishes.

your wife
by: Julie

I believe you do not have to be religious to go to Heaven. God loves his children.

My Charlie died 13 weeks ago. We had been married for 45 years. I can't believe he is gone either. I still expect him to be here waiting when I come home. We grieve so terribly because we loved so much.I will love him forever. I know he is waiting for me to join him.

Your wife will be waiting for you too.

I wish you peace, Julie
