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.

My sister (Hez) called to tell me the sad news.
So sorry Todd, but if it's any comfort, Fran is at peace and out of pain at last.
My deepest condolence to you and your 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

Default A Word from our Good Friend Todd

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.

Judy and Keith

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.
Kindest regards,
Ron
