Jim has gone to Heaven


Recommended Posts

My wonderful Jim passed away on March 24 after 4 days in ICU battling aspiration pneumonia. I bless the nursing staff at Brigham & Women's hospital in Boston for caring for him with compassion and dedication and being so good with his family. We were able to be with him 24/7 and three of us were holding his hands at the last moments. The nurse reassured us that he could hear us and he knew we were with him, so we had time to tell him how much he was loved. In the weeks before he died, when people were asking what they could "do" we asked them to write him "love letters" sharing memories of how much they cared about him and how he had impacted their lives. We read them to him those last days and then shared those stories with others at the visiting hours and services. It was a tribute to his life. His humor and selflessness and his courage through this battle inspired everyone. I will miss my hero and best friend forever. Sandy

So very sorry Sandy, my heart goes out to you. How wonderful that you and all the family could be there with your husband when he passed. I am sure he knew how well you loved him.

I thought the idea of the "love letters" was a wonderful one. So often people don't know how to express themselves at sad times like these and often end up just not saying anything.

I wish you and your family peace and comfort.

Paddy
