There is no really preparing for what we sometimes know is coming, & in some cases a long time coming. You kind of grieve along the way from watching the decline, a witness to what they have to endure knowing you can't make it go away. A very helpless feeling that one lives with. Then POOF, it's over. All of THAT
which absorbed both of your lives for so long is now gone & took your loved one. But the memories of your time together are yours to keep.

I had to look @ things as Brikee to make sense of it all. Rather than what was taken away, look @ what you were given & what you gave them. That you were put in their path to care for their needs when they would need you the most.

I like that Diane. You know we all have a scent & I remember missing my DH's.
It's been a long time for me, but some things you never forget. I just know that cancer patients never lose the battle. They are winners, over & over & over again, the most worthy of opponents.
Best Wishes in healing.
