Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
Nigel. I recently went thru such trauma. Not with someone so close as you are experiencing so I can't imagine your despair. The only words I can offer are these. Love her. Accept the future now, all the while hoping for a miracle, as we must. Talk with her of good things of the past, whatever those could be (only you can know of them) and how they matter to you and to those she loves. Most importantly, reinforce the good things of the past to provide the solace of knowing it was ALL worthwhile... EVERY minute of it.

I'll stop there. I am no priest and I certainly ain't no saint. Just an ordinary guy who wishes he could shoulder some of your burden and knows he can't.

I ain't religious much at all needer, but... God Bless.
