My gorgeous husband Chris died today and let's be honest, it's just plain shit. But, and please take comfort in this, he got home from hospital yesterday and we had a lovely day and a chilled out evening with Team Turner all being back together.
I don't think anyone quite realised how much energy Chris had put into keeping going recently and getting himself home and this morning I think he decided he didn't have the energy to go on and stayed asleep. He was very peaceful, not in any pain and most importantly where he wanted to be.
It's way too early for his life to have ended but it ended well and he didn't suffer.
At first he couldn't understand why so many people were so bothered about him and so desperate to help but eventually I got it through to him that so many people loved him …. because he was him and he deserved it.
Thank you for all the messages of support - I'm just going to have a bit of quiet time but I promise to call and ask if I need anything x x
I knew Chris thanks to this forum and I'm so glad I did, I'm a better person for what he brought to the world. A light has gone out. RIP
That's so sad. Glad he was where he wanted to be, with who he wanted to be with, and his passing was peaceful.
Rest in Peace, Chris. I didn't know him (at all) - but he was evidently a deeply courageous man.
Bollocks. I can't add anything more than Pondo and may others have already said.
I only knew you through this forum Chris but I'm sure you were a top chap. All my best wishes to Sharon and the family.
Filled up reading that Jules.
Such a short time. Utterly shit.
remember reading this thread at the start and now to find this out is terrible. :(
So very sorry to read this news. Chris was someone i really admired . All the best during this tragic time
Such sad news.
Thoughts are with his family.
Just read all this for the first time. I am tearing up and refusing to put the lounge lights on as a result.
What courage, I hope all involved are now at peace.
Agreed Jimmy. Keep yer family and friends close folks, you never know when they'll be gone....
Only found out about the sad passing of Chris last night whilst in Marsden. I was lucky enough to meet him, and although it was in a professional basis, as we had chosen him to be our wedding photographer, as soon as he found out we were into bikes that was it. We hit it off fantastically, he was a genuinely great guy and was always smiling. My heart sunk when he emailed us saying he would have to pull out of shooting our wedding due to his illness, I wasn't bothered about the wedding, just how awful it was for him. We did however get to do a small pre wedding shoot with him around Marsden and we have several of these photo's on our wall at home. Each time I look at these I think of Chris and what a great guy he was and how cruel the world can be. He'll forever have a lasting legacy in our house as we'll keep these photo's for the rest of our lives.
