    Hello Judy, I am so sorry to read that your husband has passed away.

    It is a tremendously brave thing for him to have made the donation and I agree it is a wonderful memorial for him, I hope it brings you some comfort.

    I hope some one is supporting you too, TP is here whenever you need it. xx

    I am now in the nightmare of registering his death and arrangements for his funeral. He has donated his brain to Dementia research, which is a lovely memorial for him, he did this via a living will which he completed as soon as he knew he had Dementia.

    I feel numb.

    Judy , I am deeply sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with you all at this difficult time.

    Your husband must have been a remarkable man to leave this legacy and lets hope that this type of research helps others in the future.

    Kind regards , Angela.

    Thank you to everybody for your replys and good wishes. Still feels very numb as we had to register my hubby today at registry office. Just dreading the next few days really.

    Dear Judy

    Deeply saddened to read about the death of your husband, and so young. What a wonderful thing for him to do, a remarkable man and you must feel very proud of him.

    Such a difficult and emotional time for you, wishing you the strength to get through what lies ahead. Please do write on TP at anytime, it can help, and there are others here who have lost loved ones and can empathise, as well as those still on this journey who will be there for you.

    My sincere sympathy.

    Loo xx

    My deepest sympathies to you at this difficult time. I lost my mum on Tuesday - she was 82 and had a happy life until nearly the end. It just seems so cruel that your husband has been taken at such a young age but what a positive gift he has given.

    Feeling the numbness too but beginning to get flashes of what lies ahead. I think it's just helping you get through next few days and weeks. I'm glad that you and your family are taking comfort from one another.

    You poor soul,how cruel to be robbed of so many years with your dear husband.

    I know that numb feeling,and it's just as well that we're protected by it in the first few dreadful days.

    Sending you my deepest symathy and wishing you strength and comfprt in the time ahead.
