Your story has inspired so much hope in so many people. Teddy leaves such a legacy of love, not to mention all the miracles! Now I know who to direct my prayers to when I need a little help upstairs–our very own Miracle Man!
“Watching a peaceful death of a human being reminds us of a falling star; one of a million lights in a vast sky that flares up for a brief moment only to disappear into the endless night forever.” ~Elisabeth KDecember 8, 2010 at 2:32 am #45213momsdaughterParticipant
This quote from an unknown person helped me grieve without feeling crazy. It is overwhelming, but after the storm, you will eventually get better:
“It has been said that time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its’ sanity, covers them with scar tissue, and the pain lessens, but it is never gone.”

Peace, love, prayers….what more can I say. Teddy is now amongst Rob, Jeff and so very many others that have transitioned to the other side because of CC. Rough days coming up for you, but we are all here for you and you are a very strong being. You have been a wonderful wife and friend. Take care of you now.

Lainy-all my love and prayers are with you. Thanks to your love, Teddy’s cancer was bearable, you made his struggle and pain worth it. God bless you and lots of prayers- CathyDecember 7, 2010 at 10:40 pm #45208marylloydParticipant
Tom and I are very sorry to hear of Teddy’s passing. Know that you are in our hearts and prayers as you go through the coming days. We will miss Teddy but it’s good that he is free from pain and at peace.
Take care of yourself, MaryDecember 7, 2010 at 9:06 pm #45207helenmorementMember
My dear Lainy
My heart really goes out to you, reading that your darling man, Teddy, has passed. But you were with him every step of the journey, to the very last – and I feel it has indeed been a privilege to share a little of that journey with you.
Do you know the piece entitled “The Ship”? I will do my best to paraphrase:
A ship sets sail from the harbour and those on the quayside wave farewell until it reaches the horizon, passes from view and seemingly is gone. But, as those watching and waving farewell lose sight of it, there are others beyond the horizon seeing it come into view, and they welcome the ship into harbour with great joy – safely home!
Teddy is indeed now safely home.
With love to you and all your family.
