I am so sorry for your loss. As hard as it is to have cancer, it must be far worse to be the caregiver, the loved one who has to watch suffering, the one who must go on living after the terrible loss of the love of your life.
May God's peace and comfort surround you.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your husband.

The Loss Of A Husband~

You two had been together
All those wonderful years
Then the angels came and took him
Now you're left with just your tears

Oh, I know how much you miss him
And you feel you can't go on
But the Lord has a way of healing
He will help you to be strong

One day you'll remember happy memories
As you look back at the times you had
You'll smile as you recall the times you laughed
And yes, even times that were sad

I am trying to think of something to say that may bring even an ounce of comfort to you. I have nothing. I am so sorry that you lost your precious husband. I am so sorry that in this day and age there is no cure. I am so sorry that you have to feel this God awful pain. I am so sorry for all that have felt this before and all that will feel this in the future (me included). I do hope that in time the pain will dull and the memories will sustain you.

I am so very sorry for your loss. How loving that you were there for him every step of the way. Someday there will be a cure for this horrible disease! It's too late for our loved ones, but someday someone else's life will be saved and cancer will lose.
