For Sue (The Cottage at the end of the lane)

Be strong my dear - for his sake and the sake of your children and grandchildren.   My heart goes out to you on this very sad day.   I send you my love - I shall remember Col from the short time we spent together over coffee three years ago.

I'm across an ocean and only know Sue and Col through her blog and I can't get the news out of my mind. She has many supporting her near and far.

I have followed Sue's blog for several years and truly care for her, Col and the family. This is the most sad news and Sue and her family have all my love, prayers and support. As Jill said, she has many supporting her from all around this planet. Sue - know we love you and care.

I have followed Sue's blog and feel like part of the family. I hope your post doesn't mean Col has passed. They are in my prayers.

Thanks Pat for this chance to let Sue know that we are thinking of her and the family at the moment.
The photos that she has of them with the grandchildren will be extra precious now.
I hope that,in time, she will be able to have lots of enjoyment with her children and grandchildren.
For now I hope that she has lots of support from the people around her. Sue

I've followed Sue for a while and am deeply saddened by the passing of her husband,Col. He certainly tried all the best treatments and sometimes they just don't work.
My thoughts are with her at this difficult time.

Amen to all the comments and expressions of love for Sue. I can’t remember where I found her blog, but I kept reading it because I admired her strength and courage (Col’s too of course) and her determination to do what had to be done to ensure a normal and peaceful end of life experience.

Barbara Womack said...

Oh, I am so glad you shared this, Pat.
I hadn't yet seen the sad news. Poor Sue. My heart goes out to her.

Vivian Swift said...

Sue, look how many people "know" you and Col and we've never even met you except here in Blogland -- his grandchildren will certainly know him from the many stories that you and their parents will tell, and they will know how much you loved him and how much he wanted to be part of their lives, part of his legacy. They will know. And they will honor him, as we all do, him and you.

XXOO
