I have lost my husband

I lost my dear husband of 56 years yesterday on our wedding anniversary. He had a six year tussle with Alzheimer's and a six day battle with pneumonia.
I want to say what a blessing TP has been and I sincerely thank everyone who has posted.
The knowledge I have gained has been a godsend in these last weeks particularly, and it is a wonderful source of comfort to know that you are not alone with this awful disease, and that others are always ready and willing to offer help and support.
Thank you all.

Oh Maymab, I'm so sorry. How strange that he died on your wedding anniversary. It may sound a bit far fetched, but I wonder if somehow in some part of his brain he knew and waited until that day. I had a friend whose husband (quite young) had a brain tumour and he died on their 2nd wedding anniversary.
I don't know what your family circumstances are but I do hope you have support around you.
Sending you love and a huge hug. I hope you can get some rest tonight so that you can tackle the next few days. Do be kind to yourself. Es

I am so very sorry you have lost your husband. I hope his passing was peaceful after suffering so much.

I thought for a moment we shared an anniversary but as I wasn't on TP yesterday, which would have been our 54th wedding anniversary, I see that of course your's was the previous day.
So very poignant for you. xx

Very sad news. Yesterday was our wedding anniversary too so I can imagine how especially poignant it must be for that now to be the day you had to say goodbye. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
