    Dear All

    I am sorry to have to tell you that my beloved Ken died suddenly this afternoon. We had had a lovely afternoon driving along the North Norfolk coast and he was chatting about the lovely time we'd had and making plans for going back to Canada last year and saying what a wonderful time we had and how he had so enjoyed his birthday just two weeks ago with all the family together - and he sighed and died! I tried to resusciate him - as did some lovely bikers who stopped to help till the ambulance arrived but they couldn't get him back. The doctors think he had a massive heart attack - nothing to do with his previous problems - but as it was a sudden death, we have to have a post mortem and police will be involved.
    I am just absolutely numb at the moment but I also know that he loved me so much and he was so proud of me and of all his children and grandchildren. He was my soul mate - and I'm not sure how I'll get through this, but I will do it for him and in his memory. He was so proud of the weight I'd lost too that I have been spurred on to do even better now for him. I will get on here as often as possible - but I know you will understand that I need time at the moment.
    Thank you all for your love and care over the past months while he was in hospital. At least he died with me by his side and having had a lovely day out doing what he loved best.

    Oh Chris, I'm so sorry, the tears are rolling down my cheeks as I read this, its so very sad, but if there ever was a better way of leaving your loved one, I think that has to be it, it seems he was so very happy just beforehand.

    It's going to be a tough time for you (ive recently lost my mum and have been supporting my dad too) - but am sure with the love of your family and grandchildren you will get through as best you can.

    I know nothing anyone will say can change anything, but i am sending you all my love and hugs and thoughts.

    You seem such a strong lady, your husband will continue to be so proud of you.

    Nat xx

    It is difficult to find the right words, but I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Ken sounds like he was a lovely person.
    Remember we are all here if you need a friendly ear.
