Oh Rob!!!!! Bill too!!!!

I had been wondering so about you as it has been a while since you posted last. I am so very sorry for your loss. You ALL fought a valiant battle. Hopefully you have wonderful memories of times before all this of late which will help you through this very rough leg of the journey. Prayers for all of you are being said.

Dear Rob and Bill,

I am so sorry to hear this news about your mother and wife. Please accept my deepest condolences. I know you hated to see this end this way. I pray and know that Etsuko was surrounded by the ones she loved the most in life. You will be together again some day. take comfort in knowing that etsuko is your guardian angel and whenever you need to talk just look up. She is right there watching over her fave guys. Let the tears come when ever they come. I know how hard it is to lose the one you love so much. Send prayers for peace and strength during this tumultuous time.

my father is taking this very hard. worse than I expected. I saw something in ICU that Ive never seen before. my moms pulmionolist and pcp were talking with my father about the hopelessness of my moms situation and the pcp starting crying. not just a little. full out sobbing and he tried to made a fast exit and dropped his cell phone while trying to leave us in a hurry while stilll crying on his way out the exit doors... none of us has ever seen an M.D. cry over a patient likec this. my moms ICU nurse was crying but I have seem nurses cry a time or 2 before. I think that my mom was a very kind and likeeble person. every one aware of her passing today has cried at hearing the news, I think Im still in shock stage. may be my turn to really let lose crying will happen tonite. my father says that the house feel so empty

I never knew your mom, or anything about her. But I know from the passion and determination in your dad's posts that she was very much loved and must be a special person for him to be so diligent and fight so hard for her.

I'm not surprised that her PCP cried.

What a special (and sad) thing for you to witness. To know how much your mom touched people. That (and your love and memories of her) will stay with you forever.

Again, I'm so sorry for your incredible loss. My heartfelt condolences to you and your dad.

Bill and Rob,

So very sorry to read this news. I hope you will be able to find some comfort in knowing that you were such wonderful and strong advocates for Etsuko. No one could have done more.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
