Oh Marilyn, I am so very sorry to hear this, devastating at the best of times and this certainly isn't the best of times. I keep thinking about people who have loved ones in hospital and are unable to visit them, I can't imagine anything worse, I feel for you, I'm not religious but know he will always be with you, in your heart and in your memories. Sending a huge virtual hug. Carol x

Marilyn..so, so sorry. How can these words help to comfort you in this deeply sad time for you and your family. Not having family with you must be heartbreaking. Easy words for me to say, but keep going, you will come through this horrible dark time. Keep as strong as you can, but don't bottle it up...my sincerest condolences💕

I am so sorry to hear this awful news, Marilyn and such a shock too. It is so worrying and upsetting not being able to see or visit loved ones, because of the virus and having to self-isolate ourselves. It is so cruel when loved ones are taken from us but I hope you will be able to remember all those special & happy times you had, within those treasured 50 years you were together. Please take care, someone will always be here for you, keep safe and sending hugs. Claire x

So sorry Marilyn. This would be devastating during normal times but so much more so when we can not be with our loved ones. A hug is the one thing we need at times like this .We must never take tomorrow as a given because this virus does not discriminate . My thoughts are with you Alison xx

So sorry Marilyn to hear your sad news. I can't believe it was the virus when you don't go out. It is so frightening to think we can still get it staying at home. Please take care of yourself. I hope you can stay in contact with your family perhaps through video on your computer. I know it's not the same as being able to hold them but to actually see them might help. Sending you lots of hugs. Jennyann. X

Marilyn, I am so sorry to read about your husband's passing to this horrible virus. It's so hard not being able to be with family at this hard time, we lost my Mum's sister to the virus also. Please look after yourself and hopefully this isolation period will pass and we can once again be with our families. Linda xx
