I have posted on soops kitchen but would just like to tell people who know me that my dear husband died very peacefully yesterday.

We had a very long marriage of 60 years although the last 7 or so years were marred by his dementia.
I was with him, holding his hand as he slipped away and I am very ,very grateful for that

I am so tired now but feel at peace with the decisions I made for his last few months .

I echo what everyone else has said. You were a loving supportive wife in good times and bad. I'm so glad you were with him at the end, for your sake. Sincere condolences.

So sorry. It must be a time of great sorrow but also a bit of relief that the struggle is finally over - at least that’s how I felt when my poor old Mum finally passed away

I have only just found this, ann. Your husband died the day after my mother did and I had very little Gransnet contact for quite a while after that. Please accept my sincere condolences. You have had a very hard time to deal with. All best wishes.
