    Dear wife4life,
    My sympathies are with you and your family. Your tribute reminds us how every loss to this disease is often a loss to many beyond immediate family too. Although nit long enough, I happy he was able to share a few more milestones.

    Take care,
    Catherine

    On September 29th, 2016 my husband Robert’ battle with cholangiocarcinoma ended and his life with his creator and savior began. He was diagnosed during an attempted liver resection surgery on November 8, 2014 and was told that 50% of patients did not make a year. He was able through chemotherapy and some clinical trials through MD Anderson to hang on for almost two years. That extra year he got to see me retire, our oldest daughter’s senior year, graduation and start of college, his adopted son finalize his college graduation plans and our youngest daughter in 8th grade connected to a solid support system.

    What I am most proud of is that he shared his battle via Facebook with his colleagues and former students from throughout his 32 year teaching career. He was adored and respected by so many people and was even honored by having the high school where we worked together name the performing arts center in memory of him. We had three different memorial services with hundreds in attendance. We have been showered with so much love. I am hopeful that all of our former students, colleagues and our family and friends can go forward and make a difference of some kind in the battle against this horrible disease.

    His last breath here was his first in Heaven and that cancer is gone. Rest In Peace my love!
