A Tribute to the Best of Men

I write this post with a heavy heart. You see I’ve not been around on this blog recently because I’ve been busy caring for my beloved husband Ian who passed away yesterday at the age of 52 from cancer. He was the love of my life and my best friend and I am utterly devastated. All our family and friends are.We had a very happy marriage and a great life together.  I cannot believe he is gone.

This post is a tribute to the man I’ve shared my life with for the last 16 years. He was the best of men: kind, considerate, generous, intelligent, mischievous, cheeky, funny, witty, thoughtful and a fantastic father to his four kids. He leaves a huge hole in our lives and in the lives of many, many others, and we will always love him.

This is also an opportunity to say thank you to my fantastic family and our fab friends for all their love and support over these last few months. Thank you too to the NHS and Marie Curie staff who cared for him in his last days and to MacMillan for their advice.

It’s been a tough time for us and no doubt the coming months will be just as tough, but I look to the future knowing I had the privilege of loving and being loved by the best of men and that some day we will be reunited.

I’m going to finish now, but before I go this is a message to Ian: I love you Ian Thom, to infinity and beyond!
