BOB CAREY 1946-2003

My husband Bob was dx 5/02 had a successful whipple on 6/6/02. Best possible prognosis. No spread anywhere. Did chemo and radiation as a follow-up. Returned to work full-time 8/15/02 gained weight felt great until feb of 2/03 ca19-9 began to rise. ct scans still clean. Doctors did scopes more scans and on april 7 had exploratory surgery which showed it had spread to the lining of his stomach. He never got better. He died on July 4th 2003. He was a wonderful husband, father, and my very best friend. He was so loved by all who knew him. Always ready to lend a helping hand to whoever might need him and always with a smile on his face. His men lined the street with the company trucks for his funeral. I was very lucky to have him for my husband for 35yrs. He will be in my heart forever. I miss him more than life.
