Becky's Story

The day my life changed forever was 6 years ago, Feb 21, 2004. My husband, Rick, went for a quick run on a Saturday afternoon, never to return home. At a young & healthy age of 36 he collapsed & died suddenly from a fatal heart arrhythmia do to cardiomyopathy. As I stood there in our front yard holding our 2 month old son, I unknowingly spoke my last words to him …“I love you.” Next to knowing that my husband is with Jesus & having our son, that is the sweetest blessing God has given me. Thanks to my faith & hope in Christ, I never had to say “good bye,” just a painful “see you later” & a kiss on his cold cheek as he laid on the gurney in the ER.

Yes, life does go on and we do adapt. What I have learned so far is that God can carry you through life’s most difficult circumstances, if you choose to let Him. And that is the most challenging trial, as well as a constant battle.
