Harry, words can't possibly express our emotions. We offer our deepest condolences. I have known you to be a fighter for your wife for as long as I have been a member of the online MS community-- over 5 years and spanning so many different resources. You have always wanted to learn more so you could help more. Your relationship is an inspiration to us all, and you will be in our thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.

To all the wonderful, compassionate readers of ThisIsMs:

Like I briefly wrote a couple of days ago, I am in awe at the many messages of condolence that I received this past week re: Marg's death. The kindness and compassion from all of you has made it much easier for me to get through this difficult period. Believe me, it isn't easy to have the person whom you have been married to for 32 years suddenly taken away.

I wish to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to express your sympathy with so many kind words. Those messages were greatly appreciated.

I certainly will continue to participate in this forum and help those who I can. (sorry Ian, I won't be going away :) ) I realize what a special group of people take part in ThisIsMs and feel privileged to be associated with you.

sorry Ian, I won't be going away

Okay Harry, but I'll be monitoring you closely.

I'm not surprised by the messages and support by the users of this site. At the end of the day, and despite all our differening opinions on things, we have a common enemy. I don't think any of us met you or Marg, but we share the fear and frustration that this disease brings.

Take care of yourself.

Harry, I'm very pleased that you will continue to be on this forum. I found that I couldn't initially write in as I kept bursting into tears at the thought of what has happened. You've been a wonderfully kind brave man and I salute you for these tough times you've been through and your contribution to this site.
