My Love, Dennis, went to be with our Lord yesterday. It came fast, he suffered but two days with pain, continuously told me he loved and adored me, held me and kissed me until I told him to take Jesus' hand and go. I told him how sad I would be, but because of his love I will continue.

Thank you dear friends for all of the times you've been there with words of comfort, information and prayers. May God be with you all, and never, never give up!

So sorry to hear about Dennis. Wish he would've hung on till after Christmas. I hope you have family to be with so they can help you through this tragedy.
I can't wait for the holidays to be over. Always loved them before, but this year without tom, is going to be very hard. I miss him so much and still can't believe he's gone.
Even though out hearts are breaking, it does get a little easier. I was doing good until a few days ago. He will be gone 9 months on Christmas day.
Please keep in touch with us, cause I found this site after Tom died, and have gotten so much comfort from all of you . Take care! "Carole"

Dearest ones,

As I prepare to meet a new year without my love, many thoughts enter my mind. How will I do it? The "business" side of losing a loved one can be so overwhelming. I continue to ask God to guide me. The emotional side is heart wrenching! I continue to ask God to hold me. I wish to give you all some words that have carried me through all of this battle with my beloved's cancer:

Keep Thy Face toward the Sunrise

Behold, I have sent thee out alone, but I have gone before to prepare the way; yea through
the darkness to bear a light.
I ask thee only to follow Me, for I will surely lead thee in a safe path though dangers lurk
on every hand.
Yea, I will be thy protection: I will be thy comfort. I will be thy joy. I will turn the bitter tear to sweet perfume. By My Spirit, I will mend the broken heart. I will pour warm, fragrant oil into the deep wound. For Mine heart is fused with thy heart, and in thy grief, I am one with thee.
Yea, I will fill the vacant place. Mine arms shall hold thee, and thou shalt not fall.
My grace shall sustain thee, and thou shalt not faint. My joy shall fortify thy spirit even as a broken body is rejuvenated by a blood transfusion. My smile shall dispel the shadows, and My voice shall speak courage. Yea, I will surely keep thee, and thou shalt not know fear. Thou shall rest thy foot upon the threshold of heaven. I shall hide thee in My Pavilion. Thou shalt have my constant care. I will not leave thee for a moment.
I will keep thee from despair: I will deliver thee from confusion. When thou are perplexed, I will guide thee in wisdom and in judgment. By thy light shall others be led out of the valley. By thy courage shall the weak be lifted up. By thy steadfastness shall he that wavereth be stabilized.
Lo, the hour is upon thee. Look not back. Keep thy face toward the sunrise, for He shall rise fresh daily in thy soul with healing in His wings.

Frances J. Roberts

At a time when it may be the most difficult thing to imagine, I wish you all a good new year.

Lucy

Lucy, That is very nice. I envy those who can rely on faith to guide them through. I too wish all of my friends here a New Year of peace and optimism of better times to come.
Peace

Becky, I know it's hard to rely on faith, because it's a real struggle for me too. The day Doug died, my faith and spirituality somewhat went away as well. I want so much to believe that God is good and there are reasons for what happens, but I am still angry and confused why He did this to such a good man. I find it almost impossible to pray and I haven't been to church in weeks. I was a good Christian until this and I am being tested...am I losing my religion?

Gayle,
Thank you for responding, and responding so honestly. I too have had a lapse in my faith. I went to church every weekend, taught religious ed, volunteered at the church office. Since my Terry's death six months ago, I have not been to church, see no value in prayer. I believe that life is a series of ups and downs, you are lucky at times and other times you are not. All the hoping, praying, worrying will not change the outcome. I know how bad this sounds, but nothing seems to make any sense any more. Why would a good and loving God test us? Sorry for venting. I cannot understand why God would take such a good man like my Terry.

Lucy, I am so sorry. I haven't been on this site for awhile. My husband passed Nov. 23, 2010 and it has just been too hard to read all the sadness. I will keep you in my prayers, as I know how hard it is.

I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. No matter how much I read, my therapist talked to me, nothing could have prepared me for this deep loss and immense pain. I pray that you will continue to heal, for I now know all too well how you must feel. Hope to continue to read and share posts. I truly believe that coming to this site will be a big part of my healing journey. God bless,

Lucy

I too am sorry to hear this news, but remember the hope we have in Jesus is that someday we will all be together again and in a world where there is No sickness, No Cancer and No death.

God be with you and give you the strength you need day by day.

You know, that is a hope that I have. That one day my love will be there waiting to introduce me to our Lord! In my mortal mind, I could not imagine anything more glorious! At this time, 14 days since my love left to be with Jesus, I am struggling with his absence, with my sense of direction, what is out there for me without him? My faith in God is stronger than ever as I know I could not even be posting this without His love and care for me! I guess I just have to begin to have faith in myself. Blessings to you.

All of this takes time. Just take it slow as you can and you will get there. Remember all the postings we have seen about finding a group to grieve with and how helpful that can be for some people. You will know when you are ready.

Prayers for a sense of peace and blessings in your future.

My father left us on the same day a Dennis. I feel glad that they went with so much love surrounding them. You have been in my thoughts.

Oh I am so sorry to hear of his passing. Sounds like you both had a relationship to be envious of, wonderful to see a relationship as loving and caring as yours was. You will always have the warm memories and that is such a great gift to help you through the difficult times ahead.

I just wanted to let you know we all care on this site and keep posting through your grieving days ahead. There are many on this board who have been where you are now and can help, as you have seen in the past.

Take care of you.

Blessings,

Bluerose
