    He was the most wonderful loving man, Christian, father, husband, best friend, and soul mate a wife could ever want or wish for.  December 4th would have our been our 43rd anniversary. We went to Hospice yesterday afternoon…and by 1:10 am.  the angels took him to heaven, no more pain for him.  Something (God) woke me up 10 minutes before he passed.  What a blessing.  I will miss him so much, my heart is broken…but he is pain free, and Melanoma has him no more!! 

    Take Care,

    Sherron, wife to Jim FOREVER!

      I am glad he got the quality time he so wanted in these last years, and that you were able to be awake with him during his final minutes before his heavenly roll call was announced, and that his passing was as pain free as possible as well.

      On the 4th, I hope you will be able to still smile and say happy melanoma free anniversary to him.

You have been a very brave soul in my very humble opinion, you denied Jim nothing but gave him absolute unconditional love and care. What more could anyone ask for? There must be a vast empty void left behind right how, like a part of you is gone. I hope the light fills that space for you and that the 43 years of love you two had will now surround your heart in total healing. Peace to you Sherron, for Jim is free now as he never was when his feet were planted on this earth.
