Sad News


  My love of my life for a little over 54 years passed away on Monday.  You all know that he had been sick for a long time and how he had struggled. He doesn't have to struggle anymore. I was with him when he passed. We are having a visitation and prayer service this evening then he will be cremated. We will be back together when it is my time as we will be buried together. 
   I am keeping this very short. All of your prayers have meant the world to me and know that I love each and everyone of you. Take care.

This is very sad indeed. I send caring thoughts to you so your heart may feel warm again. Talk to your husband every day, even though you do not see each other. Talk about the good times, there are so many. Love never dies, it just changes shape.

God bless you, Shirley. I saw this on Facebook, too. I am so sorry but I know his quality of life had diminished so dramatically in the last few years that it was hard for him to do anything---or to even feel okay.
God bless you, my sweet Missouri friend. Prayers for you-xo Diana

When I was a young girl I loved our Parish priest. I remember having many conversations with him. When my grandmother passed, he told me not to cry, because my tears were not for her, but because I would miss her so much. He told me that I should celebrate her life and how important she was to me and how much I loved her. To celebrate for HER because she was now with God. I have held that thought all my life when a loved one passes and it has always helped me in such a difficult time. I hope his advice to me will bring you comfort.
Much Love
Carol
