We have supported each other along the way with this fight against the ‘beast’, through many trials and tribulations for both dear men during this past four + years. Dianne fighting every step of the way to obtain the very best care for her beloved husband with such support and so much love and goodness, while with courage and wise words supporting others like us along this journey.
Today Vern entered into hospice care and my heart goes out to them both, with love and hope that in the coming days they find the eternal peace that they so deserve.
Vern and Dianne visited England some time ago for their 30th Wedding Anniversary and so I post these photos taken yesterday at the highest point ‘Red Hill’ near my home; as I blew a prayer into the wind, to cross an ocean, in honour of them both.
addendum: Vern West passed away on the 22nd September 2010 “eternal rest give unto him Oh lord and let perpetual light shine upon him ” His loving wife Dianne was by his side.
