    Sorry for your loss. I can't say anything to ease your pain. Make sure you and your wife are open with each other. I suspect you'll need one another like never before. Again, very sorry.

    I'm sure she's looking down and thanking you for everything you've done. Try to take comfort that she is at peace and is no longer suffering. So sorry for your loss.

    Prayers to you and yours. You never get "over" losing a child, but it does eventually get easier to accept. Hang in there.

    Thank you all for the kind words.
    Being a good mechanic, I am devastated I couldnt fix this. I finally stopped beating myself up about that. May sound strange but by Damn I was put on earth to fix things. I have failed.
    And She is pain free. The only blessing I can find. I couldnt believe the amount of meds She was on before hospice and still in agony.

    If I sound angry and confused,I am, and My awesome wife is too. We are there for each other as someone mentioned.
    Thanks Again All

    Typ4, I can't imagine your pain, but just consider for a moment that you did not fail. When the bird flies free, as we wish for all our children, its direction is totally up to its own decision and the wind. We can't control the wind.

    God bless you all,

    Neill

    I am so very sorry! I've lost many family members to cancer.

    Please don't consider yourself a failure for not being able to fix her. Think of it this way, someone loves her enough to call her up sooner than we feel she should have gone.
