This is something that I knew would be coming but that does not make it any easier to read.
I hope Todd is able to have family with him for a bit. We must all remember that Fran is now without pain.

I weep tears of sorrow for Todd on the loss of his beloved Fran. My deepest sympathies to you and your family.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
So sorry to hear this. Prayers still going up for Todd and family.

Just struck me that maybe there is this big white ship that always has smooth seas, a free bar & all the food is superb BUT free of calories, all the rooms are suites and someone you particularly disliked is your butler....hope so Fran ...have a good cruise....
Todd, from the day you came to Cruisemates, you told us of a love story with every post, even with your sign off. How fortunate you both have been, and we were fortunate to get to know just a part of your lives.
I know your treasured memories will bring you comfort. My sympathy to you, and, your family...xo
Trip, with her book & tea!

My heart is breaking for you. I am so sorry to read this news, and I wish I could reach out and give you a big hug. I hope that it will somehow be a comfort to you to know how many of us here have been touched by you and Fran, and how much we all care and love you.
So sorry that this post had to come. I have tears in my eyes now. Please know that you are both in our prayers for comfort. Fran is now at peace with no more pain and suffering. Love to you Todd and if there is anything we can do please let us know.
Todd, I wish there was something I could say to make you feel better. I think Donna said it best: words to the effect that you are experiencing the worst thing that can happen to a human being, the loss of a loved one. Please accept our deepest condolences.

Todd, at times like this there's not a lot one can say but please believe it when we say we're truly sorry for your loss of your loved one.We feel some of the pain you are going through.
My wife just lost a brother a few days ago--this is something we all have to face up to but that doesn't make it any easier when the time comes. But knowing you have others sharing in your grief will give you needed strength to get through this.
My heart breaks for you-----but sadly knowing that Fran is no longer suffering--will bring you some peace----
I too will remember this day and I knew I would--- it would have be my parents 54th wedding anniversay--- I thought of you both continuousely today----
