hollyridge Posted February 27, 2004 Share Posted February 27, 2004 Last night at 8:39pm my sweet husband Bill lost his battle with this distgusting and hateful disease. Our three kids and our four grandchildren are just devasted. He was out and about on Monday and then started to get very tired and yesterday morning he was very confused and disoriented and unable to stay awake. We had not even arranged for hospice yet. He had never been hospitalized and the night before he had all of the family over and had pizza and laughed and talked with them. We are all in shock. I thought I was going to go to get my hair coloured today and instead I am going to the funeral home to make his arrangements. He started slipping away at about 4:00pm and we called hospice and they came to sign him up. We never accomplished that. I spent the day and night lying in bed beside him cradling him in my arms and telling him how happy he made us and how much we loved him. His breathing slowed and within a few minutes he relaxed and melted into my arms and breathed his final breath. I want the world to know that a wonderful and caring and beautiful and humble and brilliant loving husband, father, and Papa has been taken from us and we will never be the same. Bill, I can feel you. I know you are here. Please hold me tight. The world is crashing around me. I miss you so much baby. Colleen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
