I have been absent for posting for some time.
My wife has been in hospice recently and has been
battling ovarian cancer since 2010.
Roslyn died 7/12/18, just before midnight.
Many of you have met her.
Geraldine, who recently retired from Divi Little Bay
has remained in touch with us for some time, and has
been a blessing to us.
I will be back to the island sometime, not sure when.
She lived much longer than expected., but not as
long as we hoped.

God bless you all.

Don.

Don,

My heartfelt sympathies to you at the loss of your beloved wife.

Cancer is such an insidious disease and it seems so often to strike the best among us. As painful as your loss must be, I hope you can at least take solace in the fact her pain and suffering are ended. May she ever RIP.


Respectfully,

pat

I don't believe we have met, but I'm sure she was a lovely person. Losing a spouse is an awful thing.. Our condolences.

Thank you for your wonderful post. We went to aruba in april, instead of St. Martin, due to the hurricane.
At the time I was thinking that this would be her last vacation. It was, unfortunately. Roslyn went
down hill very fast starting a month after we arrived home. I am dealing with this the best that I can.
Yes, it was a great pleasure meeting you and your late husband, the first time at Dingy Dock, which
David and Louise hosted. But we must carry on ! And I will. Thanks again for your kind words.

Don
PS to Laurel.. Great hearing from you !!!
