    I'm so very sorry Acco,
    though I am glad that Pat passed peacefully, and in your loving arms.
    You describe how most of us would wish to gently move on from this world.

    Wishing you strength in the coming weeks.
    Love Geum xxxx

    Dear Acco
    Thank you so much for sharing your last moments with your loved one, I too was very moved. Pat was so lucky to have such a beautiful partner and that she was calm and safe in your arms at the end of her life.

    Take comfort in the peacefulness you have given her in the sad days ahead
    love to you x

    I am so sorry you have lost"your Pat", that must be a wonderful way to leave, being in your husbands arms , knowing he loves you so much. Take care of yourself now, God bless.

    Your post brought tears to my eyes, when reading that you had lost your beloved Pat. I know you don't feel especially lucky at the moment, but it was wonderful that you had this golden opportunity to say all those things, to pray, to sing, and to hold her tenderly in your arms.

    There cannot be a wife, or husband, who wouldn't want to slip quietly away from this life to the next, being told by their beloved how much they love them. Thank you for sharing those lovely moments. xxx

    I couldn't say this as well as Scarlett has. This was exactly what I felt and thought when I read your post about Pat. Please accept my condolences too x

    Thankyou

    It is very, very hard to continue without my loved one but our children, adults, need my support and friendship at this time as indeed I need and receive theirs. Thank you all for your lovely kind responses. This is the week when I will need to call upon all my strength as we finally lay Pat to rest and I pay my final tribute to her for all the wonderful times she has given to me and our sons.

    What a wonderful farewell you gave your wife. I'm sure she felt secure in your love.
    So peaceful but nevertheless a very sad time for you. My sincere condolences. x
