    I’m sorry to inform you that my husband David Swain died on the 17th May. He had a stroke resulting from the IPF and died the next day. Now rests in peace.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Hold your memories close so that you have them when you need them the most. IPF is an insidious disease and one that many family members and friends struggle to understand. As a fellow IPF sufferer, I do understand the heartbreak that comes along with it.

    Take care of yourself.

    Dear Mrs. Swain,

    Thank you for thinking to share your deep loss with us here. Sometimes going to our rest is a blessing. Having had this disease for almost 5 years and other issues, I don’t want to burden my wife but she would not agree with that. So we move forward until we can’t.

    Be at peace best you can.

    Blessings – Steve

    Dear Mrs. Swain,

    The loss is tremendous, but the suffering is over. I am sure you will see him again, face glowing and in perfect health. May you find peace and comfort even in the separation for a period of time.

    Dear Mrs. Swain,

    Thank you for letting us know about David, but I’m so sorry for your loss. It took me a few days to reply because I was so sad to hear this news. I loved corresponding with David on these forums, especially about your travel to New Zealand and how much he loved that. He was an integral part of our forums community, and we will miss him very much. Our deepest condolences for your loss; know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May he breathe easily now.

    Kindest regards,
    Charlene.

    So sorry to hear of his passing. Now he will be able to run, jump and act like a teenager again. He will miss you as much as you miss him. We all have thoughts of that day for us and the darkness that will leave our family in. But, he will be waiting for you when it your turn to join him. You will be joined hand in hand and the love you have for each other will be re-newnd.  God bless you and keep you.

    My thoughts are with you at this time. We are all family under the veil of this disease.
