Yes they did but it was a monster journey and they got held up badly on the way.

So sad. sad

That is one of the most saddest, tragic stories that I have heard in a long, long time.

I hope his family don't feel responsible for his death.

He was very ill to begin with, and they did what they felt was best under horrible circumstances.

I hope he rests in peace with his wife.

So much sympathy for both families, what a terrible waste

His family can't feel at all responsible for his death, with his awful injuries he probably would never have recovered anyway and i'm sure they just wanted to bring him home. An awfully tragic story.

Such a dreadful situation.
Their poor families. sad

Such a tragedy. This has really shocked and saddened me. Two happy people with great lives ahead of them.

I hope they find the person(s) responsible.

shrinkingsagpuss Sun 03-Aug-08 18:46:31

desperately sad story. but for him, the only outcome possible really. Can you imagine how awful it would have been for him to have woken up? It would have been unimaginably awful to suffer the terrible brain injury, and then to gradually learn that the woman you loved had already died.
At least they are together, hopefully in peace.

littleboo Sun 03-Aug-08 18:47:39

My feelings too shrinking, something that he would probably never ever have come to terms with, really sad.

YumeeMumee Sun 03-Aug-08 18:50:50

This is so, so tragic....hopefully they are together again sad

Pixiefish Sun 03-Aug-08 18:53:20

Terribly sad. Their poor poor families

AllieBongo Sun 03-Aug-08 18:53:36

that is such a waste, how very sad.

allgonebellyup Sun 03-Aug-08 18:59:50

this world is a depressing place to live.

Phoebes123 Sun 03-Aug-08 19:05:21

The whole story is immeasurably sad.

I am not a religious person but hope that they are both now at peace, together.

this has moved me to tears, 3 weeks ago they were starting their married life together. thank god none of us know what is around the corner. sad
