45 and lost - only 9 years they went by so fast

Richard was so full of life. He passed on 11/4/15 after 4 mos of battling stomach cancer.  WHY didn't I push him more years before to get checked more thoroughly at the DR.  I said to him years before that he didn't look right.  He jokingly replied "oh well maybe I am dying."  Well sadly he was right.  I told him for years that sleeping 12 hours a day was not normal and I thought he was just depressed.  We were so busy working and just trying to make it in life that we missed the fact that…

A Lasting Legacy – All That Remains

When a parent, spouse, sibling, child, or friend dies, we grieve for our loss. As we continue to mourn, we wonder if we will ever find the love, companionship, or support that is now lost. While our loved one is physically gone, we cherish the memories of our time together. As…

A message of comfort to all.

My condolences to the family of those who have died. I will like to share a scripture I found comforting, Acts 24:15. It says that “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous”. We all cant wait to see our loved ones again!

A Widow's 'All Girls' Trip Is Worth the Try

Q. I’ve been asked to join some women acquaintances on a long weekend excursion. The participants are widows (like me) or divorced. What do you think?

I’m all for it. In fact, I’ve been doing something similar for several years. The “all girls” trip has become an annual highlight. In my case, the idea took hold after my husband, an attorney, died. One of his biggest clients was a…

Many of us have heard these words..." To death do us apart" Death  brings an end of marriage. Many children get mad if their parents want to remarry. The decision is personal and one should want their parent to be happy- 1 Corinthians 7:39

Respecting Your Love One's Wishes

Very important that our sick love ones have someone that can act as an agent and advocate.One of my friends was too sick to talk and her mother acted as an advocate. It was a sad situation because her children wanted to do something opposite of my fiend's wishes. This is so sad. As children we need to respect our parents wishes dead or alive. If our love one wishes to be cremated ..respect their wishes. When you see them again one day, you can say I did every thing just so. It's not a bad…

After a Family Rift, Should You Go to the Funeral or Memorial Service?

Q. My aunt just died, and I want to attend the funeral. However, I haven’t spoken to my cousin (her son) for several years after a series of arguments. What should I do? I’m afraid he’ll be annoyed to see me there or even challenge me.

Funerals and memorial services are meant to be healing rituals for survivors that bring us together to share the loss of a loved one. But that doesn’t happen if the bereaved are…

Any advice for soon to be widow

Good morning,

I was hoping someone might be able to share some advice from their experience of losing a spouse.  My husband has a rare form of cancer and has endured a year worth of chemo and other treatments.  Unfortunately, there are no other options and he is currently receiving hospice care in our home.  What I am curious about is whether there is anything I can do for myself or my young children before the real grieving process starts?  I'm an emotional wreck and know it's going…

Comfort Those With Anxiety

May we comfort those with anxiety & depression issues that have resulted from losing a love one....( 1Thess 5:11)...

1)Support & have empathy

2) Learn about it ( PTSD for example)

3) Continue to comfort our family and friends

We all have a fine line between actually experiencing this ourselves..

My heart goes out to those who continue to struggle with this

Cry If You Need To

Some may say to men  " Don 't Cry" In some cultures, its considered unmanly to cry... Well, even Jesus cried ( John 11:33). He was the greatest man who ever lived! Crying is a normal part of grieving and we should cry if we need to do so. Holding this in is very harmful.
