Hello everyone - my name's Dave and Ann was my wife - but I guess you may have known that already

Its taken me a little while to put this together - apologies for this

I wont go into the detail of the circumstances of what happened - it was a bad time - but I did see that Ann had relayed some of the progression of what occured - but the day we found out 2 weeks ago was something that I relive vividly in itself - but that was nothing compared to what was to happen

We have set the date of the service at the Bournemouth crematorium at 2.15 on friday being a week tomorrow (7th I think) - if you wish to come - please do - I would be happy to see you - though of course I know many of you are so far away - and please dont worry if you are unable to make it

Its the crematorium as Ann had always been very specific in the past about that side of things - there wont be flowers as Ann was never keen on flowers - I know thats a little unusual - but we thought we would keep it with what she liked - and thanks for the cards I have received as well

I know she really enjoyed her time with you all here - I know I had not started any posts before - but Ann showed me lots of the entries over time and I had contributed to some replies

I love Disney too - maybe not quite enough to want to go every year - but I knew how important it was to Ann - and we were lucky enough to fit in a few visits in the far too few short years we had together - in fact I remember that I was able to show Ann some parts of the parks that she was unaware of - there are so many happy memories of those times - and that makes me smile

I also remember the assistance and the gifts we received for our wedding - it was just the perfect day - for the perfect wife

I know how disappointed Ann was that we were not going to NY and we had read the recent posts that were put up by Mick I think it was, together - she so wanted to see the high line and all the sights

I have been truly touched with all the messages I have received - my apologies if I forgot to answer any - as well as the comments I saw on the earlier threads

I have also been impressed that you could see just what a lovely person Ann was - you can imagine how lucky I was - she was so devoted to me - I had never experienced anything like it - and we were so similar in our habits - soulmate may be an over used phrase - but it really was true

I would like to carry on as this name of daveann - though maybe not as often as Ann (!) - if just for the fact that she will live on in another way - because I know she will live on in all of you that knew her - and I will enjoy talking with you because in some small way I will be with Ann - so please feel free to message me if you like

Sorry not sure on the icons or tags - so hopefully this will all come out OK

Dave

Dave,
Thank you so much for taking the time to think of us. I will be there in spirit for the ceremony. Ann was a special friend and a very sweet woman. I'm glad I was able to know her.

Hello Dave. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Ann was a much beloved member of this site, as you know. We feel we know you a bit too, as she always spoke so highly of you, and the completeness of her love for you. It is a truly wonderful gift, the love you have for each other.

Ann's enthusiasm for all things Disney was contagious. She shared all her excitement with us and we were all richer for having known her.

I do so hope you come here and join us when you can. We'll miss our Ann forever, but with you here, it will help us too.

Please take care and know that each one of us will be there with you on Friday.

Dave, it is so good to "see" you here. There really are no words..nothing pretty to say. Our world is a little less bright without her here and she will never be forgotten.


Thank you for sharing her with us...:hug2:

Dave,

I have no real idea of what to say.

I know what the same situation would do to me and it breaks my heart just to think about it. I can't even begin to imagine what this has done to you and the pain you must be going through.

Know that both you and Ann are in my thoughts and prayers.

Tom (:crywave:... that's all...)

I can't put into word what I'd like to say, but I just want you to know that I am so sorry for your loss.
I recently lost my granddad and it broken my heart, I can only imagine how you must be feeling to loss your sole mate.

:hug2:I'm not sure I have the words to say how very sorry I am for your loss. I haven't been able to visit this site very often since I'm going through chemo as well. Ann will remain in my prayers as you will, I wish I could do and say more. The people on this site are an unbelievable source of comfort. Please let us help as best we can. With love and prayers, Trish
