My darling husband has gone to rest,he is whole again

On the 16th of June at 3 in the morning my most precious and darling husband passed away. I lay beside him with my arms around his, holding his hand and my head on his chest and waited as his dear heart stopped beating.I felt quiet and peacful as I knew his struggle was over. After my children said their last goodbye I closed the door behind them, we had our last moments , I washed him and shaved him and dressed him in the clothes he had always worn when we went,then I just smiled at him and said,We did it darling, together we did it . He is free at last, he left our house as the man he has always been strong and proud.The whole house felt so warm and happy as if he was radiating a huge warm and loving smile that just filled us with peace and happiness and the feeling that everything was right ,he was where he should be ,free and whole and after all these long sad years, back with us again .Each time saddness over takes us we just think of his beautiful smile and the way we felt that day. The day before he died I took a small lock of his hair to wear in a locket around my neck, to feel him close to me , but I do not feel alone .He is with me and I will always love himand feel the love he felt so much for me. He will always be my darling husband as death hasn't parted us ,we are just apart for a while......................Thanks to all Bye Daizee

Dear Daizee,
I only started reading about your husband`s struggle today, and replied to one of your earlier threads. I am devastated by your sad news and the tears are flowing for your husband and mine. I am so so sorry. He was a very lucky man to have someone as caring as you. I know you have many friends here and I am sure we don`t want this to be a final goodbye from you. Come back for support whenever you feel low. Let all the support carry you through the sad bad times.
A big hug from chrisply. xxxx
