A British man has won the hearts of Russians for his soul-stirring account of his love for his beautiful dying wife, and their extraordinary romantic 'fairytale' adventures together as she was gradually killed by cancer.For Will Cheyney, 35, from Norfolk, it had been love at first sight when he met Katya (Ekaterina) Rusyaeva while posted to his father's agriculture business in the former Soviet Union.
She was the personal assistant and interpreter to the general director.'I fell in love from the first glance.I signed a contract without checking my salary.'I wanted only one thing ~ to see her smile and to hear her voice.'He tried to invite her on a date but she brought a girlfriend.My mother always cooked turkey and Christmas pudding.On 27 December 2013 we went to Barbados from the UK.The next day he wrote: 'Yesterday I lost the most important person in my life.'After 5 years battling cancer, my wife didn't wake from her final sleep.'I've never known a kinder, more sincere, gentler and more beautiful human being than her.'She treated everyone like you would your closest friend and anyone who met her for even just two minutes would never forget her.'I felt so honoured and humbled to be her husband.'She was so brave in the face of such pain and suffering.
She lived life to the absolute max, celebrating even the tiniest details in life and appreciating every minute of every day.'As I write this, I can't stop crying because there were so many things I didn't get to say to her before she passed, but I hope and pray that she's in a better place now.'I've been overwhelmed by the support and kind words from her friends and family.
I fell in love with your country,' he told Starhit magazine in Moscow.
He studied agriculture at Shropshire-based Harper Adams University College, winning an award when he graduated aged 27 in 2009.'In November 2011, I went to Voronezh,' he said.'I planned to see the town, the office and the local economy within two days.'I entered the office and Katya met me there.
well, it can feel like the door just got slammed in your face. It’s not like you were dating and now he’s with someone new, but there’s no denying you have some serious feelings for this person.
It’s totally natural to feel bummed out and even kind of jealous, but how can you deal when your crush starts dating someone else? You obviously think your crush is a catch, so you'd be excited if you started dating him.
She was told she had a maximum five years to live.'When I saw my beloved woman again, I was impressed with her positive attitude,' he said.'Katya met her friends, she spent time with her nephew Stepan, but she treated me only as a friend.'At the end of August I could not bear it any longer and confessed my feelings to her, in a very boyish way, right on the staircase.'Katya smiled and said: 'You are a good friend'.'He kept trying to woo her, buying a coffee machine and making her favourite cappuccino every morning.
