An interview about Elaine's illness, death and our family's recoveryFriday 14th October 2016

Posted by Neil Todman

I was recently invited to speak at the Village Church in Emerson's Green in Bristol about how I had coped with Elaine's illness and death.  It is by far the most extensive reflection I have done on this time in our lives, including the year following her death.  I hope it will bless you if you choose to listen.

Interview with Neil at Village Church, October 2016

The questions asked are:

  • Tell us about your family life up until the time Elaine fell sick
  • Tell us about your emotions during the 21 months of Elaine's illness
  • Tell us about how your faith in Jesus helped you during Elaine's illness and has helped you recover following her death
  • Explain how you told the children about Elaine's illness
  • Explain how God can be powerful and loving yet let your wife die from cancer
