Robert G. White July 10, 1956 - June 25, 2011

He was almost 55 when he died. There was so much pain in his body that He felt he just could not take it another day. The doctors said they had done all they could for him. So there he was ... unable to even leave his house to take a walk anymore. Very little joy for him as he sat day after day taking pills that didn't take the pain away now. Only were so addicting that he needed them to quiet his nerves. Life isn't supposed to turn out that way when there's so much left of it to live.

So we shall forever miss the smile that was his alone and the kindness that all experienced that came in contact with him. He leaves many to mourn his passing especially a son, David, brothers, a sister and a brokenhearted Mom who will always love him as she remembers the line from Hamlet..."Goodnight sweet prince and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest".

I have heard it said one could tell if a persons' life was a success by the folks that are left to mourn him. Robert's was surely that. Rest in Jesus' arms, my son. We'll all be with you someday.

Dearest Robbie
by: Your Mom

It's been over a month since you left us but my grief comes on too strong to resist every day. I want to stop crying and hurting so much but the pain you suffered that led you to end it all keeps coming when I least expect it. I long so to talk with you and so I look at your pictures and talk to them. I am having a hard time trying to understand why my prayers for God to heal you were unanswered.
I wouldn't bring you back to this world to suffer again for anything and I know why you had to do what you did but your poor old mom misses the sound of your sweet voice more than I can say.
So I'll just keep coming here to have these outlets for my grief and maybe you'll be able to know you are in my thoughts always. XXXX Mom

My heart cries with you...
by: Sharon


I am so sorry at the loss of your husband. On June 29, 2011, I lost my husband due to a heart attack. I'm taking it one minute at a time and trying to live in the moment. I live out in the middle of now where and I am isolated from family and friends. I talk to God and he comforts me when I have panic attacks. I find that with God, I am never alone. I am also writing a Dear Gary journal that I share my feelings and everyday happenings with. That is helping me too. God Bless you....

Missing Our Loved Ones
by: TrishJ

I am so sorry for your loss. The grief so deep because we loved these wonderful people so much. I lost my husband 7 months ago. I miss more today than I did the first month. I look back on our life together and realize what blessings we were given. I just wasn't ready to let him go. I'm lost without him but trying hard every day to put my life back together.
Hold on to your beautiful memories. The grief ride is fresh for you. You are in the stinging baby step stages. Everyone tells me that eventually we make our way back to happiness. I'm still searching for that. I had to learn to take things one day at a time, to be thankful for what remains and not to lock myself in my old life with my husband. Some days that's all I sit and think about how things used to be. Other days I'm a little stronger and actually try to work toward the future.
I hope you can find some peace in realizing we will all be together again some day. That doesn't help me so much during the lonely evenings but it is something I truly believe.
God's blessings to you.
