Read your message and it sounded very familar. My husband died Oct.12,two days after my birthday, after battling non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for 6 years also. In 1994 he was 118 lbs. stage 4. It was up and down for 6 years while we went into deep debt. There are no words to express the pain of this journey. Running our business alone was in my hands (which was our baby) and when he left, it did come with a certain sense of relief. I was praying for his release at the end, as his suffering was great. My heart goes out to you. I'm glad you have your children. My spiritual life is strong and allows me to receive the gift in this sorrow. His passing opened my heart and is showing me the true meaning of life. I'm grateful for the opportunity to connect with people who understand. Take care.
