10 December 2010

I wanted you to know... ..that Mr. V passed away this past Saturday. We were divorced, but that was beside the point - I still loved that man. I was able to be at his bedside right to the end. Fuck cancer. It's been three years this month since his operation to remove his cancerous kidney and a wedge on his lung. He had a smooth passing, surrounded by his two kids, his two brothers, his girlfriend of six months, and me. Everyone here has been so supportive during all the ups and downs we've had - I just wanted you guys to know.
Condolences, redvixen, and hugs. I hope you have all you need (it sounds like you do) and it's good to know you're with other people who loved him. Hugs, again, and peace and good memories to all of you.

It's so hard to lose someone, and to see them taken struggling with a disease like cancer is heartbreaking.

I hope you have people around you to give you many hugs.

Damn, I'm so sorry. What a wonderful thing for him that you stayed until the end. I have such a hard time with death, and I would hate to think that I'd be alone when my time comes.

It's more than fuck cancer, fuck death.

I'm so sorry. You've had such an up and down time with him, but it's good that you could put other things aside and be there for him. Yeah, fuck cancer!

Take care of yourself and your kids.

My sincerest hugs to you, redvixen; he had an arduous journey — but so have you, and you allowed yourself to be guided by love instead of pain, which is a personal inspiration to me; I will always be looking to that example in how to act be.

I'm very sorry.

(There was more here, but it felt like cancer one-up-ing, and that didn't feel right.)

Thank you all so very, very very much. This is why I love this place. We had his memorial service today - beautifully done, lots of people. And his family and I are still close, hope to always be so. He would have been touched by all the outpouring of love surrounding us. Thank you all again.
