Dearest Joyce, we are never prepared for death. Death is a very ugly demon that we try and fight everyday. The only hope we have is the promise that God gives us at Rev. 21:3,4. One day death and pain and sorrow will be done away with forever. Continue to pray for faith and strength to cope with your lost one day at a time. Always remember, you are not alone. Take care and my Jehovah continue to bless you and give you will to continue.
Joyce, I am so sorry for your loss. I know I don't know you or your husband, but my sorrow for you is sincere. My husband of four years just passed on Feb 22nd, 2010. He was the best friend I could ever hope for and the pain is numbing. You've done what I did right away, too. I turned to the internet and I was lucky to have found this site. It has really helped me. Nothing will bring back my husband, but talking about him to anyone that will let me does help me cope.
Like you, I didn't know anything was really wrong with my husband. He collapsed here at home, I called 911, and that was it. I wasn't prepared for this at all. I'm still in shock I know.
To let you know, he was 57 and I'm about to turn 49, we were each married and divorced before and were genuinely happy in our marriage. Our 4th anniversary is next Sunday with my birthday four days later. I'm already making plans so that I'm only alone for short periods of time.
If you need someone to talk to, I'm here. I truly mean that. When you're ready...I'll listen, as will so many of the others here, too. Sometimes it's easier to talk to internet friends than other friends and the people on this site are very kind and supportive. They've helped me, and I know they want to help you too. I don't think there are any fixes, but there is kindness and fellowship.
During your time of mourning, I would like to express my sincere condolence at the loss of your Husband and best friend. May the tender mercy that God has always shown be with you now so you will know that you are not alone and may the prayers of others help in some small way to bring you strength, comfort and courage each day . Many words will be expressed, yet we know God can and will express and provide to you and your family everything that is needed to care and sustain your hearts at this sad time. Isaiah 41:10,13.
Every song I hear on the radio remind me of the wonderful times we shared, we were married for 18years he was my best friend and I miss him so much, his funeral is Tuesday the 16th, i can't bear to say good-bye. I had just spoken to him one hour before he died,he was at work not sure what happened, he was found face down by his fork lift paramedics never was able to revive him... my world has been upside down every since....i just miss him so much.
