Memorial Wall for November

Did you know there's a Memorial Wall right here at Widows Christian Place? Look at the lines of words right below the header. See it? Ah, there it is---middle line, far right. When you open it you'll find directions for submitting a tribute to your husband and the life you had together, and you'll also find others' tributes listed month by month. Personally, I use this each month to pray for widows, and I've decided to post it the first of every month so maybe others will too. We all need all the prayer we can get, right? I hope you'll join in by emailing me your own tribute, and by praying for the following women who were widowed in November.

11/01/2009 * Linda * Eddie; Cause of death: Heart attack at age 54 * Michelle, 30; Vince, 27; Amanda, 24 * We were married 32 years. "Honey, you were truly God's gift to me and blessing to our 3 children. I prayed for a godly, Christian man and God brought you to my door. Thank you for blessing my life so deeply with your goodness, your beautiful, devoted love and your laughter. I can say I am fulfilled. We miss you so very much. Praise God for his faithfulness that He will never leave us or forsake us. We hold on to Him each moment, each day. Honey, we all look forward to seeing you again according to God's word. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. * Riverside County
11/4/2010 * Cheryl * Jerry - suicide * Christine 41, Cindy 39, Cara 34; Grandchildren - Summer 15, Jared 12, Andrew 5, Carson 4, Elizabeth 19 months * My sweet husband of 43 years this February........we didn't quite make it. My heart aches every hour of every day for you. We will always wonder why....we all love you so very much.
11/5/2011 * Ann * David F. Schubert * Glioblastoma Multiforme * Kelly 34, Kristy 32, Heath 26 *
David was 63 when he died; he was a charter member of the Navy Seal Team 6. We were married for 4.5 years and he was a man of such godly integrity. I thank God for the time we had together (short as it was) - I miss him every day. It is still so very surreal. He loved Jesus and I know we will be together again. * Tennessee
11/08/2010 * Stephanie * Greg - oral cancer * Luke, 7; Dylan, 17 * My love, my life, my everything.
11/10/2010 * Ruth * Jake - Pancreatic Cancer * Steve, adult; Granddaughter Kai, 5; I am thankful for 38 years, being married to my best friend.
11/10/2009 * Candy * Bob - non-hodgkins lymphoma * Leah, age 35; Annisssa, age 33; Charity, age 32; Tshanina, age 30 * The most important things in Bob's life were in this order: God, Wife, Daughters, Others * Tennessee
11/11/2011 * Susan * David passed on 11-11-11 in Tijuana, Mexico where he was valiantly fighting the final battles of his 7-year-long war against advanced stage prostate cancer and, eventually, squamous cell cancer in his bladder. It was a David vs. Goliath-type of battle!!! He was 57 years old when he went to Heaven to be eternally healthy, happy, and whole with his Lord and Savior!
* He is, also, survived by his daughter Sabrina (32), his son Jonathan (27), and, those who called him "Papa," Sabrina's children: Deseree (17), Triston (11), and Dylan (3). * I thank God daily for allowing me to share my life with David for 29 years, 4 months, 3 weeks, and 2 days! He is greatly missed, but, oh, what an adventure!
11/21/2009 * Glenda * Dan - ALS (Lou Gehrigs). We were married 3 months short of 50 years. I miss him every waking moment.
11/24/2010 * Ruth * Dan, age 57 - heart attack after 41 years of diabetes * Philip, 30; Andrew, 27; John, 24; 5 grandchildren (+ one born 3 weeks later). He preached about the glories of Heaven and how he longed to kiss the feet of Jesus - 3 days before he got his wish. My Beloved, I thank God for the 34 years we had; you were the best!

  1. My husband, Eddie, passed away on November 1st in 2009. I am Linda. My husband was Eddie who died of a heart attack.

    I wanted to say that this was the 3 year anniversary of my husband's passing. I wondered how I was going to "experience" that day. Even last year, at the 2 year anniversary, I felt so much emotional pain still. Praise be to God that I felt His strength so much on that day this year. My spirit was calm and at peace, as were my 3 adult children. I want to give honor and glory to Jesus for being that Anchor of strength within me. I am so grateful to have that peace. Through my grief journey, in the midst of my pain, I continued to look to Jesus and ask Him to help me get through "one day at a time." He has. There is a day where there can be healing in your heart. I have found that out and I thank God and trust He will continue the healing. "...He is the lifter of my head." Psalm 3. I am praying especially for the widows who lost their husbands in November that they will experience God's peace.

  2. Dear Linda, I'm so glad you've visited here since the time you first entered your tribute to Eddie. What a wonderful thing to hear how the Lord has lifted you up this third anniversary. May He continue to give you strength and peace! Thank you for praying for all the widows who face these November anniversaries.
