Condolences to all her loved ones.
Been sitting here processing this for a couple of hours. It's hard to express the sorrow one feels when friends are hurting. Victoria hurt for a long time and now has eternal relief. Heartfelt condolences to Alvin and family and of course continued prayers.

Take care my friend,
Sad to hear about your Victoria ,,Alvin ,, here's wishing brighter days for you to come after your loss..
so sorry for your loss, will continue praying for you and crying with you from this side of the country. Praying for strength and God's peace that passes all understanding!
I am sitting here with a tear in my eye, but I hearken back to all of your posts about the battle you two went through, and I have never witnessed such courage, bravery and positive attitude in two people in my life.
She was a strong-willed lady, and you were the model of models of a good husband.
This may not provide much to ease your pain, but your story has been an inspiration to me, and I only hope that I will be as strong as either of you two should I face similar adversity. And for that, I thank you.
Alvin, Please let us know about services for Victoria. Where and when.
You and your family are our heart and mind. A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. Our condolences on the passing of your beloved Victoria. We are honored and blessed to have known Victoria. She was a gracious lady.

Oh Alvin....Tanja and I are so saddened by the news. We are very blessed to have known Victoria and just the couple of times we were together, we felt that we had been friends for much longer.

That being said, please know that you & your family are in our prayers and may God grant you the strength and peace necessary for getting through this difficult journey.
Your Friends up North,

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find peace and comfort in God and know that His loving arms are wrapped around her, welcoming her home.
Martin, Thank You for letting this stay in the Spoon until Saturday morning.
My report... We had a wonderful service today for a very compassion lady. Her integrity, character and compassion was well spoken of. I would never have dreamed how much closer we became during the pass year and half during this battle with a deadly disease of Leukemia. A battle that we thought we had finally won but an infection and a couple other issues prevented it. She fought like a true warrior and never complained. Oh, if I could have that strength.
She knew her Savior very well. Carried his word everywhere we went.
After a couple days I have found some peace in knowing she is now having a wonderful reunion with here dad, who recently passed and her mother who she missed for years. She is now at peace too.
To all my Stovebolt buddies, all over the world who sent up prayers and letters WE both thank you. Many of you she knew well and looked forward to our next gathering. She spoke of you and never, never spoke a bad word of you or anyone else. Such and elegant lady!
I miss her, I am sad and heart broken but the pass year and half has been a blessing. to care for such a wonderful lady only caused us to love each other more.
She is not here now, but she is not, and will never be forgotten.
Alvin, I am truly saddened by this news. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Victoria was a true fighter, her courage and strength was more than most of us could muster.
so sorry to hear that Victoria passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers to you all.
RIP. So sorry for your loss Alvin.
Sorry to hear of your loss Alvin.
I join with all of your and my stovebolt friends to say; - very sorry to hear of your loss.
While I expressed my sympathies on Facebook to yourself and Victoria, I just wanted to come here to do the same...
Meeting both of you when you came to Vancouver eight years ago was truly amazing... we all enjoyed meeting and spending time with you so much...
To hear the news that Victoria had lost her battle after fighting so hard was shocking... she was such a warrior and gave it everything she had...
It was almost unimaginable when we heard she was gone and we were all so shocked... we had really hoped to have you back for another visit to spend time with both of you again...
My deepest sympathies at losing your lovely lady, my friend... she was an amazing lady and will be missed by all of us!
Thinking of you and sending our thoughts and prayers from here in Canada...
Alvin-------I learned of your loss today at the reunion. I'm so sorry. I'm blessed and thankful that our paths crossed. You're in my prayers. Joe
Alvin you were Blessed to have Victoria. And Victoria was Blessed to have You.
So sorry to hear of your loss. God Speed to Victoria.
You are in our prayers. Lots of friends and support here for you, Alvin. Hang in there. Tom
