I'm pretty sure Scott now is in a better place, but still hasn't forgot your nor your family.
He will be still there sorrounding you with all the good things that may come in your future (and they will).

He will be there helping you with these difficult moments, life goes on and i think he will be waiting for you on the other side.

A big hug.

DeAnne I feel very sorry for your loss. I've read almost every comment you've posted in the last years to become familiar with the process considering my dad's case and it was terribly sad to see his health go downhill.
My heart broke reading your beautiful words, especially about angel Ajala. Wishing you all the strength to cope with this. You've been a great support for him that's something undeniable.

I cried and smiled, then cried again at this beautiful sharing of the end of Scott's life on earth but the beginning of eternity in Heaven.

Thank you for it all. From the story of the angel floor cleaner, the doctors who really cared, his fun going home ceremony and rainbow fingers. Your children will remember these things so much more than they'll remember how sick he was or any pain they saw. You're a blessing to Scott, to them and this morning, to me.

God bless you and the family and keep you safe in the coming years until you're reunited with Scott in our Father's house!

DeAnn - I just reread your post, it is sad and awful but it is also so beautiful - seeing as God can make all our ways nice and blessful..putting rught people on our way. I read it like a novel from another world...
Your love shine through every word, but I can tell you that such nurses you will not find here where I live... or docs, no one ever spoke with us, phone calls - it will be such a miracle that we will be dead of heart attac...
So - I am SO SO SO sorry you lost the love of your life, but reading your story as I can see, you have 4 wonderful sons, you are so connected with love and care, it is a priviledge to know someone like you and your husband and I am sure your memories will turn into hearwarming scenes in you heart and mind. May God bless you and your family.
Sorry for my english.....I hope you can understand what I mean to say

Not being an eloquent person, all I can add is it sounds that our ultimate passings should be as beautiful as Scott's. So hard for you DeAnn, but sharing here was a gift. May you find your feet, clear your head and one day have the peace to move forward without having to count the steps.
Prayers for you, the children and for your Scott. You made him a wonderful wife, he chose a beautiful soul to share the journey of marriage. That man will never leave you, only wait.
Again, much love coming through my fingers to your screen.
