On 21st January 2016, after 19 months of putting up the strongest, bravest, most inspirational fight imaginable, my amazing husband James passed away. I am so unbelievably proud of how hard he fought and how hopeful and determined he was. Sadly the future we dreamt and hoped for wasn't to be. And I, like so many of those who loved him, are now left feeling incredibly lost, heartbroken and devastated.
Words can't begin to express what an amazing person he was. Wow it is so hard writing about him in the past tense. He was loved by so so many people. He is often described as kind, caring, thoughtful, loving, brave, strong, courageous, motivated, determined, inspirational to name a few. I am honoured and priviledged to have known and loved him. As I know many others are too. They say grief is the price you pay for love. It is with utter devastation we now have to plan his send off. We have obviously been unable to work for the last 19 months and therefore funds are extremely low and it turns out that funerals are bloody expensive! It appears that I am looking at having to pay at least £5000 for his funeral. He is worth absolutely every single penny, without a doubt. The problem is I don't have that sort of money.. So that is why I have set up this gofundme page.. I need your help please. Please help to give James the send off he so deserves. Thank you in advance for your support!
