    The love of my life, Pat, passed peacefully away in my arms tonight.
    Whilst in my arms I sang our night time routine songs, said The Lords Prayer and sang Psalm 23 as best I could remember it. I then told Pat again that I loved her and she would always be in my heart and memory. I thanked her for all the love and joy she had given to me and told her there was nothing more to be said and she could now leave me and be at peace. I kissed her and said, 'Goodbye'. A moment later she was gone.
    A beautiful period and my hopes and prayers came true; together at home for a peaceful end to the trials we have both faced over the last 10years of that dreadful disease.
    I know the manner of her passing will be a comfort to me over the coming days and weeks.
    Thank you for your kindness and support shown to us via Talking Point.
