Sad news

Postby HarryZ » Fri Sep 28, 2007 4:04 pm

It is with great sadness that I have to advise the readers of this forum that my wife Marg passed away late this afternoon.

After suffering from MS for over 36 years and in the past year from various ailments, she is finally at peace. She was recently admitted to hospital with Pancreatitis but had several other medical problems as well.

I am so sorry for the loss of Marg. Even though I didn't know her the fact that she lived for 36 years with this disease makes her a hero in my book. And, given your clear devotion I'm convinced as well that she must have been quite a special person.

With deep condolences

We've had our run-ins on this site, but please believe me when I say my thoughts are with you. You were an incredibly devoted husband and I'm sure your wife was grateful for your continuing support. May she rest in peace.
