My wife died of a squamous cell carcinoma of the heart exactly a month ago today.

She knew that for the last four of five weeks of her life, that there would be no respite and she would die sooner rather than later as the cancer filled the heart and gradually choked off her circulation.

But she bore her fate stoically without tears, constantly planning the lives of those who would be left behind and properly closing all of her cases as a family barrister. In the end she died peacefully at home in her own bed.

That is true bravery and it is in us all.

It certainly has helped me to face the future.
