Her suffering has ended.

My darling Ruth passed away in the early hours of yesterday morning. I was holding her hand and my sons were with her. I know she is now at peace and her terrible suffering has ended but I am missing her so much. This terrible illness has taken teo of us. I will be strong and get through this. After twelve years+ I look forward to a day without sadness.

Dear Afghan

I am so sorry to hear of the death of your lovely wife and would like to offer my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to you and your sons.

There are no words of comfort to ease your pain but I hope you will find some consolation in knowing her struggle is over.

Be at peace with yourself.

I'm so sorry for your sad loss. I hope your and yours find some comfort in the weeks to come, knowing your loved one is no longer suffering. I lost my granddad 5 weeks ago and while I miss him daily it does get a bit easier. Thinking of you. xx
