Heartache

On March 20th, my beloved wife and mother of my children, unexpectedly went into cardiac arrest. She had never presented any symptoms prior to then.

On March 21st, her doctor informed me that her brain was no longer functioning and there was no chance of recovery.

On March 22nd, in accordance with her wishes outlined in her living will, I authorized the medical staff to remove life support. She passed away peacefully at 8:48am central time while I held her hand. She will be missed.

March 23rd would have been our 18th anniversary.

The photo is our last family photo taken March 16th.

No blogging for the foreseeable future. I’m sure you will understand.

    I lost my wife of 43 years January of 2017. It ripped a hole in me big enough to walk through. She was my heart and soul. I know what you are feeling and can tell you that while you may not believe it now, it does get better. But there will always be a hole because it will never be like it was. Find someone you can talk to. Share memories of your wife with others to encourage them to share their memories, this helped me a lot. Contact “GriefShare.org” AND GO, especially when you don’t want to. Best thing I ever did.

    I lost my wife of 47 years to cancer almost two years ago. I feel for you and am praying that the Lord eases your pain. I received some wonderful advice from a man I truly admire and that is, when you think of your wife and start to feel overwhelmed, think of the good times you had together and smile, it makes you appreciate what you had together. Prayers for you and your children.

    I don’t stop by here often, but I’ve been stopping by for a long time, I feel like I know you like that guy you talk to occasionally at the gym.
    I hope you know that all of us on the periphery are here for you in the ways that we can be.
