To My Beloved husband of 43 yrs---my best friend

To all who have lost a spouse and are in painful grief as I am, I am truly sorry for the sorrow you have been asked to bear. I too have been very angry with God for taking my husband away when he was just 65 yrs old--a strong man in the good health (so we thought) and was suddenly taken away with a sudden cardiac arrest. It has been nearly 6 months since he died; I miss him more each day and I now realize this will not change. I will miss and long for him until I die and am reunited with him in heaven. Then and only then, will I have any peace and comfort. I have great faith in God; He makes no mistakes and the bible tells me that we are to suffer as Christ suffered for us--to save us from our sins and to have eternal life in heaven. I say this because we have been asked to deal with and live through one of the hardest events ever. For me (and you) the only way for us now is to live as Christ-like as possible so that we may draw others to the love of Christ and eternal life. My husband was a great man of faith and total respect for God--our creator--and I post this Memorial page to him as he made me a better person in so many ways and helped me to try to follow God as closely as I can. May God give us comfort and peace as we travel this road of tears and sorrow.

John THANK YOU! so much for your kind words. I love people. I also want to help others as much as I can.
A little background information from me would be to say that I always wanted to be a counsellor and a writer. These were my dreams. But my passion is to SUPPORT other's everywhere even across the pond. If I could come alongside you all in Person I would. I can express myself better through writing. I will keep on writing and supporting you all as much as I can. My Best wishes to you all.

Hi Doreen
by: John Pitts

I have to tell you that I read all your posts. This one as well as when you are responding for others. You carried me through the last year. Yes, it is excruciatingly painful, but I've read your messages daily since loosing my Mark one yr ago on May 2..(53 yrs young heart attack) . You could write a,book, you are so eloquent and seemingly an effortless writer. It comes easy for you to communicate through written words. And, I just wanted to thank you for that, while we are sharing our stages of living on after our loved ones have passed. Since, you've had my attention, I know, that, you've had others all the same. Hugs to you....John

To My Beloved husband of 43yrs. ---- my best friend
by: Doreen U.K.

AMEN! What a lovely powerful message of comfort and Hope for those who have lost a loved one. This is truly one of the worst experiences one can go through. No one can understand what grief feels like till it happens. Sorrow is so painful. Yes this may be our GETHSEMANE experience of great trial and suffering on this earth, which feels as if it will last forever.
I was married 44yrs. and lost my husband 1yr. ago to cancer and he also was 65yrs. He died 16 days before his 66th birthday. The Bible does tell us to Sorrow but not as those who have no HOPE. So all we can do is encourage each other to be OVERCOMERS. We will be sad for a long time. It is painful to lose someone who we have lived with for half a lifetime. Our HOPE is ETERNAL LIFE. Where we will live with our lost loved one's forever. No more tears, No more sorrow, no more grief, and no more DEATH. Death will be swallowed up and destroyed forever. God comfort you through your grief and your life as we battle together for our Healing from this grief.
