On August 11, 2019, I said good-bye to my husband, my friend, my partner and the one who always loved me best. Jim Mantock took my heart with his final breath. He passed away peacefully laying next me to in our bed at home. We were blessed with a love beyond measure and 30 years of happiness and memories. Jim was a gift to many and the romance of my lifetime. Rest in peace my angel…
Thank you to all who followed Jim’s blog. He treasured knowing that his voice was heard by so many.

Sad news and great loss.
He will be missed. He was a great support to me and many others through his blog. I have been dreading the day that I would get this news. Hopefully, he got the deserved peace and treatment free, side effect free, final days. Farewell Jim. RIP. Cheers, Phil
These words pierced my heart. A good man has left us. Fair winds and following seas, Jim.
Lisa, I knew your husband only through this blog and mine. It was clear how much your support and love meant to him. It was clear you were holding him up, keeping him together. I’m so sad that the world lost such a great guy! Thank you for sharing him with so many!! All the best to you—sending cyber prayers your way!
Lisa, I’m so sorry to hear this. Jim and I compared photography notes through our blogs. I admired his strength and spirit, and he’ll be missed by many.

Lisa, Thank you for posting the sad news of Jim’s passing. Jim was always quick to respond to my blog entries and always with sound advice and encouragement. Still, I am shocked that it came so soon. He was far too young. He will be sadly missed. Stefanie and I send our condolences for your loss. God bless you. Les
Goodbye, Jim. I’m sorry to see you go. You made a lasting impression on me and I will always be inspired by your courage, good humor, and honesty. Lisa, please accept my sincere sympathy. I wish you and yours the strength to get through the difficult times ahead. Thank you for sharing Jim’s last moments with us.
This wonderful man and his lovely wife changed my life in so many positive ways. I will be forever grateful!
My heart goes out to you and your family Lisa, and I am saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. From his previous post in June, it sounded as if he felt relieved of the burden and side effects of treatment, at lease for a time. Thank you for posting this. I knew Jim only through this blog which I came across when my husband was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer. Although Jim titled it Yet another Prostate Cancer Blog, for me, it was the only one I read, and your husband’s spirit, honesty, tenacity, and steadfastness was and will continue to be uplifting and a comfort. Please accept my condolences.
