    I can't add anything that hasn't already been said, but I think Sarge summed up my emotions quite well. My deepest sympathies.

    Aw, geeez, I'm real sorry to hear this. I don't know what to say beyond what has already been said. Don't hesitate to contact us if you need anything.

    Ah shit.

    Stay tough as you can, that's all you can do. I'll say a prayer for you both tonight.

    Coot, this is late because I was on vacation until last night. I'm dreadfully sorry to hear your sad news, and you and your wife will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    Coot? You haven't mentioned anything about Carol lately... you ok? She "ok"?
    Anything either of you need?

    I sooo hate talking about this, but I thought I should update. She isn't eating and she's, at least at this time, refusing the appetite stimulant that the Hospice staff are trying to get her to take, saying that she doesn't want to draw this out anymore.

    She's bedridden and can barely get to the bathroom. The doctors are no longer even offering an opinion, but from the looks of things, I'll be quite shocked if she makes it to Christmas. Not much more to add, other than she beat the initial prognosis by a good stretch.

    I doubt there's anything to say that will make... well, anything better.

    I am sincerely sorry, Lee. Offer her comfort, it's the most and best you can do.

    You and Carol will be in my thoughts. May God grant you strength.

    I'm very sorry, Coot. It's never easy to watch someone's life coming to an end. I will definitely keep you and your wife in my thoughts and prayers.

    Lee, I'm also sad to hear this. I wish I could offer something to help you through this time. Please feel free to call me, any time.

    This is one of those things, that challanges one's faith. All the prayer, I tried. If there is a God, he's going to have to explain this one to me because I'll never understand it. :(

    We love you Coot, and even though Carol isn't a member here, we love her too. Be strong and if you feel weak, don't be afraid to fall on us for support. This has to be very hard for you. We're here for you. Wish I could be there for you right now, to help somehow.

    I can't imagine what you're going through now, but I can empathize, and I can pray for you. So I will.

    Steve Is that it, then?

    Words aren't enough. I think we all wish we could be there, if only to take care of the mundane things so that you two can spend more time together.

    You'll both be in my prayers, Lee.
