    Really sorry to hear this TJ – I’ve been seeing photos of the two of you on here since I can remember there being a singletrackworld and it was always a highlight.
    Take good care of yourself.

    So sorry to read your news. My wife and I are heading along a similar journey, maybe a bit longer and slower but with the same outcome. Your experience and your handling of it gives me some hope for dealing with the future. Thanks for that.

    Shit, so had to hear this Mark, cherish every moment fella, need to get that ride in soon mate.

    Thanks all, MND is my wife’s diagnosis, but I’ll leave this thread alone for TJ.

    I don’t know you TJ, but I’ve read and enjoyed your contributions on here for years, including your many adventures with your partner.

    I always thought that you came across as a thoroughly decent man, and your response here has only reinforced this (the “new bike” joke especially).

    Love and strength to you and all who knew her.

    She decided she wanted no treatment – she wanted to go “home” to spend quality time with friends and to hear birdsong and see trees. With the help of our wonderful friend Iona who gave us use of her ground floor house and garden and a huge supporting cast of friends and family we were able to make her wishes come true.

    I nursed her to the end and she died peacefully in my company. We were able to ensure she had a good death and that her final weeks were filled with laughter and love.

    At the end she died much as she lived – very much on her own terms

    What a lovely way to pass .Thanks for sharing it, and remember you still have all the memories.

    Heart breaking Tj, but my goodness, you’ve done her proud. Thinking of you and others who are coping with ill loved ones and loss.

    Oh man that’s a hard read.

    Like many on here I’ve never met you but feel like I’ve known you a long time. I was looking forward to reading about your adventures travelling around in your retirement and I’m so sorry this never happened for you both. You may think of yourself as an argumentative old curmudgeon, but it’s clear you are loved and respected on here and I suspect in the real world as well. Take care, and if you find yourself in the Dunkeld area, it would be an honour to meet you and shake your hand.

    I can barely begin to imagine what that must feel like.

    TJ – heartfelt sympathy to you, so sad to read.
    But you’ve undoubtedly made the best of a horrific situation, I’d settle for slipping away in such a way.
    Take care of yourself.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    I guess the recovery starts now and I guess that will include plenty of cycling. Looks like a custom shand is in my future and that of course means I need a new bike for now 🙂

    I will be shouting out on here for folk to ride with once I am ready for that and a vague plan is being formulated to have a “see how many STWers I can find IRL” tour later in the summer. Be warned!

    TJ I think your empathy for other on this thread is a measure of you as a human being. Folk are here for you.

    Please accept my belated condolences TJ. I rarely look on the chat forum. Your account of Julie’s last days was extremely moving. I am currently receiving treatment for cancer and thankfully things are looking very promising but if/when I have to face the end, I can only hope that I will be allowed to go with the peace and dignity that you were able to allow for Julie.

    All the best to you TJ!
