I have no words. I am so sorry.

OMG, Agnes I am so sorry.... Hon, the only comfort u can find in this, is that he is free of pain....Remember the good and funny times... I know exactly what u r going thru...((HUGS))

Agnes, I am so sorry to hear this.. I have been just a follower for over a year, and only posted one time.. You have a beautiful spirit about you, and I will say a prayer for you today..

Agnes, I just learned the sad news, I send all my support and hope that your youth and your mental strength will help you overcome this difficult moment.

Agnes, he was at peace having the person who loved him most holding him as he left. I wish peace for you as you are held by those close to you and by us who are distant in miles but very close in love.

Agnes, so sorry to hear this. Despite knowing only what you put in this blog about you, my heart goes out to you, your family, and Geoff's family. I wish I could do something other than that, but I cannot unfortunately. I cannot even say "I know how it feels" because I do not. So, just take your time, do what you have to do and we'll be sure to wait for your next blog even if it's a few months from now.


Oh my god that's devastating news. I don't know what to say.

Oh Agnes. I so hoped it would be good news. I am so sorry. I have no words. But I do have tears to shed with you. All I can offer you right now is a long-distance friendship. And hope. Be strong sweet Agnes. hugs xx

I am so sorry for your loss, your sorrow, your pain. Day by day is the way back, but it's a slow process. Geoff will always live in your heart and thoughts. The heartbreak will ease and joy will take its place as you recall your wonderful life together.

Oh, dear Agnes...my heart goes out to you. I am so sorry. Thank you so much for finding the strength to share this sad news with us. How beautiful (for both of you) that Geoff died in your arms.
Hugs and Prayers,

You were the very best wife and life's partner to Geoff, Agnes. You taught us all how to be loving and caring and strong. How to be better humans than we are.

We mourn Geoff's passing away.

Agnes, I am so sorry. You're in my prayers.

Agnes, I am so sorry to read this. I have been thinking a lot about you lately. I know that no word will ease your pain. I am thinking of you. Remember the happy times. Geoff and your love for each other will always be there, in your heart.
lots of love,

Agnes, my heart goes out to yours and I am so very sorry for your terrible loss. Please know that there are many who care.

love and hugs, Kate

I am SO SO sorry to hear this Agnes. You are in my prayers and I hope God gives you the strength to cope with this.

I am so sorry Agnes, I had hoped that things would take a turn for the better. You have so many beautiful memories and I hope you can embrace those. My thoughts are with you.

I am shocked to hear this... I'm so shocked...

I just knew things would get better, he would be better and we'll have you both back again... But...

Sending you my tiny hugs and a shoulder, though it might not count for much, that's all I can send across so many miles...

Have strength dear Agnes... Please have strength.

Terribly sorry to hear this news. Having only been a follower for a short time, I could still see the deep love you both shared for one another. That is not gone.

Take care, thinking of you during this difficult time.

I'm really sorry to hear this Agnes. I will light a candle for you this week and I'm sending all my positive energy your way.

Agnes, I am just devastated for you. I am so, so sorry.

Dear Agnes...another long time (kinda) reader, first time poster. In tears over your loss, though, as others have said, I know only what you have revealed online and Geoff, less. I remembered however seeing a comment or two here and there from him. I think I like this one best...his words first: "Cancer doesn't scare me and the possibility of death doesn't frighten me. I simply feel that the diagnosis is a death sentence eventually, just like life is. It is the denial of time and energy that should be used to create the future that is the most difficult part...." and then he quotes Cicero: "Be sure that it is not you that is mortal, but only your body. For that man whom your outward form reveals is not yourself; the spirit is the true self, not that physical figure which can be pointed out by your finger." Thank you, Agnes for introducing us to Geoff. Though his body has been painfully torn away from you it's clear to even the casual reader your true selves, your spirits are even now forever united. God bless you as you grieve, mourn, reminisce, cry and hurt...and may you find comfort and solace in unexpected places.

Oh Agnes, no. I am so, so sorry. I know your heart must be breaking but I hope in time (and even now) the precious memories you have will sustain you and once again make you smile. Blessings to you and safe journey to Geoff.

Oh my gosh. I was just thinking about you yesterday. Really. I'm so sorry for your loss... There are no words. I have come to love and admire you guys so much through your blog and the things you share of your life. I'm sure you will find the strength, you are a strong woman that's for sure. Your blog is a beautiful documentation of your love and devotion to Geoff. Take good care of yourself, my dear. Big hug and kiss..

I am so sorry Agnes. I wish I could give you any words of comfort.

Agnes, my brother died in my arms 10 years ago. It's as emotional for me today as it was then. I know that these comments to you are probably a blur ... Hopefully a comfort ... But truly an outpouring of love from all your admirers. If you ever want to talk to another about this experience ... I would be happy to share. Much love, Joel

I believe you will meet each

I know there are no words, but I still want to say I'm sorry. I am devastated to hear of your loss. Geoff was so lucky to have such a wonderful wife. Please take good care of yourself. {{{HUGS}}}

I wish there were words. I wish there was something I could say. I wish things were different.

I'm so sorry.

My sweet Agnes, I am so terribly sorry :(. ..My thoughts and prayers go out to you and Geoff's family.

Sending my love to help you through this tough time xo

Agnes, my compassion to you both, the beautiful team.

Much love,

I'm so sorry Agnes.

My best to you.

Agnes. No words, I cannot believe it. I hope you will find the strength to make it through this.

All the best to you,

Dearest Agnes, thinking of you during this most difficult time.



I am so very sorry Agnes! I was thinking of you the other night and prayed for you and Geoff before I fell asleep. I have to agree with the others who said that you and Geoff are soulmates and will meet again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful relationship with him on your blog. I loved reading his sweet, loving comments to you in the comment section. My heart just hurts for you and Geoff's family. I'll keep praying.

I don't know what to say. I'm so sorry.

Agnes, i'm so very sorry to hear about Geoff, be strong and my prayers are for you during this difficult time. *Hugs.
Love Hans.

He was lucky to have you with him through it all.

Agnes my love, literally I couldn't open your blog update email today. I just knew what it was going to say. Finally, after about 5 minutes I opened it and as soon as I saw your words I teared up. Saying I'm sorry for your loss just doesn't even come close to what I feel. Please know that I am here for you in ANY way. I'm sending you much love and hoping that your heart is able to heal with time.

Oh Agnes... I do not even know what to begin to say. This is such a irreplaceable loss. I remember being so touched by the comments he left you, the love.... his beautiful spirit. Holding him in those last moments, could of never been any other way with that kind of love..

Thank you for sharing that love with us readers and know I will be praying for you to find comfort and solace. Love, Cynthia

Agnes, so sorry for your loss. My your memories give you strength in this difficult time. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thoughts in Progress

Agnes I am so sorry. My heart goes out to you. All my prayers are with you.
I am not very god at expressing myself in such moments and nothing I say will ever be enough.
I really am very sorry.

Oh God, Agnes. My deepest condolences to you and wish you loads of strength. Despite not knowing Geoff and you personally, I feel a sense of loss. I will pray for his soul and for you. Lots of love, Rachna

OMG !!! OMG !!!! I am so sorry....I was totally out of blogs...My Dad died last month.

Agnes, I am not on the same boat like you...for me it was my Dad and for you, your life partner. But I think, that you've tried your best in healing him and even Geoff has tried his best in fighting against his cancer.

Even my Dad was hospitalised for 2 months in Intensive Care and finally we lost the battle.

But the only thing is we tried and he tried. Thats the thought that'll help us ride through this storm after the death of a loved one.

Keep strong....write more....put down your thoughts...let them all come out of your heart, till you become light inside.

Or pour out your thoughts to your friend nearby.

Lots of hugs and love sent your way, to make u feel a little better. Take care dear.

May you have enough strength to bear this loss. I am so sorry Agnes. Please rest and take care of yourself... I am sure, with all his love Geoff will always be around you but we will terribly miss his comments on your blog :'(

Really sorry Agnes. I had hoped it would be different...

Oh Agnes - this is the saddest news. I have missed you and your blogging so much. I feel heartbroken for you. All my love.

Oh my God!

RIP, Rockstar.

God be with you, Agnes.

I dont know what else to say....

I'm so sorry for your loss. In tears..

I know that nothing anybody can say will help reduce the pain...but please do know that we are all with you...and our prayers!


Very sorry. I know nothing helps now, and won't for what will seem like a very long time. If you have close ones near you to hold on to, do it. Even if it only feels worse to do so. Hold on to them... hold on to God. Mostly, just hold on. Better comes later, but it does come.


This is so very sad. You have many people praying for you and sending you their condolences. Please add me to this very long list.

Hi Agnes! It's been a while since I last read your post....I'm a bit busy. So sorry to hear the news...no words can console your lonely heart and soul...I'll pray that in God's time you will find peace of mind...please accept our dearest condolences to you and your family...

Hugs and prayers Agnes!

Dear Agnes,
When you were silent for so many days, I got afraid.
I can imagine what you must be going thru. Hope you have your family n friends with you to support you thru this phase.
We all cant be there with you personally but you know that we all are concerned about you.
It is only your blog which is the connect between us but still your little sentence made me cry.
May God give you strength.
May Geoff's soul rest in peace.
A warm hug from a virtual friend in India.

I will include you in my prayers.

So sorry Agnes. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. bd

hmm...I am sorry....dear Agnes.

May Allah give you strength to cope with the pain and sorrow...Amen.

I'm so sorry Agnes. Hugs to you dear. Sending lots of love your way. As others have said, if you need to talk I'm here too.

I'm so sorry, Agnes. I DO know what you are going through as I lost my husband of 37 years some 11 years ago. Believe me when I say you will find inner strength you don't even know you have and you will get through this. Handling grief is a very personal thing and none of us do it the same way. God's Grace will see you through. Your memories and friends will always be there to draw upon. Take care of yourself and your own health....try to hold on that that independent spirit that your blog so reflects. {{{{HUGS}}}}

Praying for you and Geoff. I hope all of the comments bring you a small measure of comfort. I'm giving you a big cyber hug dear.

Oh Agnes. I cannot even fathom such a loss. You are in my heart, thoughts and prayers.

Dear Agnes,

What do you say about something that was hoped would not happen? I think of Geoff and two things come to my mind. How helpful he was to me and my husband over in India when I was fighting for my life. And how much I appreciated his care and concern in keeping things together for me, when he hardly even knew me. And, how he (through you) turned me onto Kerpal and made me laugh for days and days. I know that is not very deep, but, that meant so much to me to be able to laugh for days and days over something so silly and it made life not so serious during that time period. I will remember that for a long time to come.

In regard to your loss, Agnes, I cannot even imagine. You have been through so much. It's obvious that you have put Geoff ahead of yourself and fought a hard fight. You did everything that you could.

I wish the best for Geoff and his future where ever it is that he ventures off to. I know that you will get through this. There are many people counting on you to continue to be who you are and communicate in the way that only you can! You are a loving and beautiful person. Thank you for being that way and for being my friend. You are in my thoughts.

What can I say to ease your pain? Sadly, there are no words that can lift you from your sorrow and misery. Only you can bring that about.

I know, it is hard for you to think beyond the emotions seizing your mind. “Why Geoff?” you cry. It is all so unfair.

I understand your overwhelming grief. My wife was killed crossing the road 23 years ago and I still feel the pain. Deeply.

I have no answers for you. For you see, there is only the Universe. But what an “only” that is. The thinking process that evolution gave us can merely marvel at it. But it is more amazing than anything our minds can comprehend. Don’t try. Just accept that “it is”....as everything “just is”.

But the Universe is so unfeeling and uncaring, you say. It does not notice how piteous are we poor sentient beings who can feel pain and sorrow. That is true. But wait. Why should we be pitied when we can also feel happiness and love?

Keep in your mind the happiness and love you felt with Geoff. It will make you cry. But it will also be a balm.

My thoughts are with you.

I am so sorry to read this. Along with everyone else, thinking of you from far away.

It will be alright. There is God somewhere. And He will give you the courage to walk through. Believe.

Dearest Agnes, Geoff shared so many gifts of beauty and wisdom. I hope this will give you strenght as you allow yourself time to heal. I have no doubt his spirit will be with you always and in all ways, as your journey continues. Love,


just started to follow your posts by accident, or was it? i am truly sad for you.......can feel the sorrow and lostness. my thoughts and care are with you.......

Agnes~ You are forever in my thoughts and prayers...I feel a bit intrusive reading your post, as I am but a fellow blog reader, but I am truly sorry for your loss and I wish you much peace and comfort during this time! xo

My dearest Agnes,
Words can not convey the sadness I feel in my heart and soul for you and the loss you are now enduring. You are in my thoughts and my prayers. Take care of yourself!

I am so, so sorry. Prayers for you.


Oh my dear no words will express ... my heart to yours.

Agnes, I'm so sorry.....was really hoping to read that he was getting better. Havent been logging in frequently but U and Geoff were in my prayers all the time. Even now I cant believe it.
I always loved the comments he left u and his humourous take on life had me smiling long afterwards. I really dont know how to make u feel better, there is this tight feeling inside my chest.

His Love and Memories never will...I am literally shaking , and dont have the words to express my feelings right now... My prayers always with You.

Agnes, I haven't been checking in recently but yesterday I just decided to see how things were going for you. I couldn't find the words then and all I can say now is how deeply sorry I am to hear of Geoff's passing. He certainly had his soul mate in you. I woke up this morning trying to imagine your pain but I know I haven't come any way near it. Rest in the knowledge Agnes that you were with Geoff in both of your every waking and sleeping moments. He left this world in the arms of his dearest love making his passing surely somewhat easier. I'm sending you healing thoughts Agnes, you are in my prayers. Look after yourself.
Love and Hugs,

You were there, he died in your arms! My heart goes out to you. Just know so many people are saddened by you loss and only wish the best for you.

So sorry to hear this news Agnes, Kia kaha (Maori for 'keep strong'). Cherish the memories. Love, Kay

Oh, Agnes. Such simple, devastating words. I wish for you peace and love and light in this mourning. You are in my thoughts. <3

I sympathize with your loss AGnes....I'm sorry to hear these news. I am praying for you and your family. My deepest condolences.

i am so sorry, agnes. i cannot even imagine what you are going through. you are in my prayers.

So sorry for your pain. I had missed seeing your blog and then such sad news. God bless. He was so young!

I am truly truly truly sorry.
No words can take away the pain.
No words can heal.
It is easy to say things like 'time will take care'.
'He is in a better place now' and all that.
But it still hurts.
Like hell.

Prayers and hugs

When my dad passed away in June 2003, I was so numb that I could hardly feel anything. But in time, I realised that my daddy and best friend had joined the realm of eternal life. And I was glad for him. Souls live for ever!


Blessings to you during this time. In our prayers...


I am in tears Agnes. Very sorry for your loss.

Dear Agnes,

Came Via Doreen's site.

I understand how much it hurts. Twenty one years ago, my baby died in my arms.



That sucks so much and I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to you.

I am so sorry for your loss Agnes. Words cannot heal, only time does. I always hoped I'd read something interesting about your escapades when I remembered you this morning. This is so unexpected and unfair.

Take care and some more care...

And now I feel guilty that I wasn't here for you. Isn't that crazy?

I can say I'm sorry...and I am.

Death is an amazing thing. An incredible, awful, thing that over time...when we can peek our heads out and look around...teaches us things we thought only past generations knew.

You'll never forget him. I don't need to tell you that. And that's a good thing. (Even though it feels like hell...)
