"elyse, those are the words that I use regarding myself, "my past, present and future" are gone. Candace had just turned 30, less than two months b/4 she left. That was April 09, 2010. Then on Sept. 22, 2014, my younger bro passed…"
"Trust in God. I feel responsible for three deaths. 1) My Grandma who had a stroke while at church praying for me. 2) My only child, grown, who asked me to move w/her but my roommate said I couldn't come back so I didn't go and she…"
"Being a Respiratory Therapist, my brother dealt with patients with heart and lung problems. When he got PHT, he had lung issues so I wanted to give him one of my lungs but he said, "it won't be a good outcome". He ended up passing…"
"My little bro passed Sept. 22 '14. He had PHT, PulmonaryHyperTension. SO ironic because he's a Respiratory Therapist! Maybe it's transferable from patients and he should've been inoculated or worn a mask at least! Hopefully in…"
"Tony was 42. Engaged to be married to a lovely girl. We were starting to plan a wedding. Then all of a sudden we had to plan a funeral. I will never get over the shock of it!! As far as I knew he was in good health. Never any cardiac problems. But,…"
"Thank you Melinda for remembering Tonys love for the Dolphins. Every time I watch them play I cry through the whole game. I just wish they could win once in a while!!! Tony was always for the underdog. He was that kind of guy. I do miss him so much.…"
"I'm sorry Lynn. My brother passed 9/22/14.He had PHT, Pulmonary HyperTension. He's a Respiratory Therapist and gave breathing treatments to patients in the hospital. I think they'll discover he should've been wearing a mask. I…"
"My sister is my best friend too Karen. You have my sympathy.That's good you write her, I know her Spirit sees it. My sister is four yrs older than me and she was diagnosed with R.A. Life is too short, I wish I realized this when I was…"
"It took 40 yrs to NOT feel that gut wrenching pain in my gut when Iost my Grandma Billie at 17. I lost my lil' bro Doug on 9/22/14. He would've turned 55 on 11/13. He has one child, a daughter in college, studying to be a…"
Tony was 42. Engaged to be married to a lovely girl. We were starting to plan a wedding. Then all of a sudden we had to plan a funeral. I will never get over the shock of it!! As far as I knew he was in good health. Never any cardiac problems. But, he had a sudden heart attack. And living in a small country American Samoa. There was not very good emergency care available. Since I am a retired nurse, I will always believe he could have been saved if he was here !! But, I am coming to accept that it was out of my hands!! I just hope and pray every day that I will be with him again someday! Peace to you at this time of the year when we all feel so much grief. Merry Christmas. To celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The only way to our beloved children.
Thank you Melinda for remembering Tonys love for the Dolphins. Every time I watch them play I cry through the whole game. I just wish they could win once in a while!!! Tony was always for the underdog. He was that kind of guy. I do miss him so much. As I know you miss Candace. Please enjoy her children. They are her. I wish Tony had a chance to have a child for me to love. But it did not work out that way. Peace.
I'm so sorry for all you have been going through, it's hard enough for me to deal with the death of my wife I can't imagine having to deal with a daughter, brother and friend also. My Prayers will be with you.
Thank you Melinda. That was his last picture. It was a selfie he took on this IPad. As far as wailing is concerned, I do that silently every day. I don't think we'll get past it, we'll walk along side it. Your picture of Candace is beautiful.
Melinda, I am so sorry about your brother. I can only imagine what you are feeling during this time. Especially this time of year.... I know you have good memories of both Candance and your brother...please know its okay to cry and its okay to smile as you think about pleasant thoughts....God is collecting all our tears...(Psalms 56:8)
