My darling Andy went to be with Jesus at 4.15pm today.

He was surrounded by both our families and our best friends. I kissed him, and told him that I loved him, that I’d miss him, that we’d look after each other. And that it was time for him to go home, Jesus was waiting for him. I prayed over him, and he slowly, peacefully stopped breathing.

He was a wonderful man, and I feel indescribably blessed to have been married to him for one year, ten months and a day. I can’t express how much I’m going to miss him.



  1. God bless you, dear girl. I doubt that I will ever forget your story for the rest of my life. You are an inspiration to so many.

  2. God bless you. You have shown so much strength and love. May the Lord hold you close to Him and comfort you in your sorrow.

    in His peace,

  3. I saw your story and prayer requests on Ravelry today as I was posting a prayer request. There is nothing I can say, but I am so sorry. Your story is amazing Ses. God hold you His hand. I am mrspotter-tru on Ravlery if you just want to talk.


  4. My prayers are with you and your family, Ses. There are no words.

  5. My thoughts are with you at this very very sad time. God bless you all.

  6. I have no other words that just to say I’m so so sorry. Ses, you are such an amazing person and so strong. I’m sending you all the love in the world xxxx

  7. I found Andy’s blog last year and havent been on for a while. I am so sorry for your loss. Andy has given me true inspiration. 3 years ago I had pretty much the same surgery as Andy. I am a Dh racer also and was thinking of getting out of the Pro Dh class after my surgery but Andy gave me the inspiration to stick with it.I am 43 and never stop learning and finding inspiration in others….like your Andy.
    God Bless you Ses,

  8. My name is Paul, and I am the Webmaster for the Ostomy Armor web site. I began this journey with Gordo, the creator of OA, gratis and grateful to be helping someone who would be helping so many people. I was always arms length until today, -yes, I’m a month and more late with my condolences, and I apologize for that- but this affected me far more than I expected. I’m not speaking for Gordo or Ostomy Armor for this part.

    For this next, I am…

    Is there anything you would like to have put up on Andy’s web page to celebrate his life? http://www.ostomyarmor.com/andy.php . He sent us these pictures a while back, not more than a year, I think, and his email about the product, and the web page will represent his life, unless you would like it taken down. You may contact me at webmaster@ostomyarmor.com and either I will respond, personally, or I will forward the email to Gordo.

    Again, I am sorry for your loss.
