John

My husband John passed away on April 18th after battling cancer for almost 3 years. He was surrounded by friends and family and went very peacefully and without any pain. Thanks to everyone for all the love and support!

Jody, i admit that i have not kept up with blogs in over two years so i had no idea that your beloved John was still fighting for his life. I came across the gorgeous smiling photos of him on Flickr while looking for a friend's vacation photos from this weekend. I was shocked to read the comment under John's photo that he had passed away. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. There are just no other words to express my sadness at your news.

I know that you are surrounded by loads of good friends and family who will hug you when you need comfort and listen when you need to talk. I am sending you my thoughts and prayers for peace. I know form John's blog when he first became ill, just how much pain he was in and i am relieved to know that he is no longer suffering such cruel pain to his physical being.

Sending you hugs!

Your husband had such a kind smile. Although I never met him in person, I did get to know him through your blog. I am so sorry to hear your news and for your loss. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you and your family.

Much love, Amber

Dear Jodi,
I saw the obituary in the Flier, and I gasped. I am so sorry to hear of this loss. My prayers are with you and your family that you find strength in your happy memories.
Sincerely, Meredith (I'm the one that used to work with Joanie at PPC)

Just surfing ravelry and found your site, I am so sorry to hear of your loss, he looked like a great guy. Be strong and may you find peace in the beauty you create.

Me said...

I follow you but haven't checked in awhile... I'm sorry for your loss as well... I too lost my husband when I was 26 years old, he was 28. Not cancer, an accident, but it hurts all the same...

I wish you many happy memories after the grief has settled.
