All the best for the future, I know how hard it can be losing family to cancer. I lost my grandma to it but I sometimes feel her presence in silly ways.

Just remember that we are all here and if you ever need to talk I know I'd listen!

My deepest condolences to you and your family!

Andrew,

 

So sorry to hear of the loss of your wife at such a young age, life really can be so cruel and indiscriminate.

Keep the happy memories alive and cherish those 2 little boys.

The mini will always be so special to you all and I hope you and the boys enjoy using it.

 

Best wishes.

Hi Andrew,

What a great post. Please accept my sincerest condolences on the sad loss of your wife from this horrible disease.
We have all been affected in some way at some time by this and hopefully one day there will be a cure.

You have my utmost respect for having the strength to post this. All the best to you and yours at this sad time.

Steve.
