Memorial Wall for January 2013

Here's the January listing from the Memorial Wall right here at Widows Christian Place. I hope you'll use it throughout this month to pray for everyone. If you'd like to add your own tribute to the Memorial Wall, please follow the directions mentioned here. I'd be honored to add you.

1/1/2009 * Gerel * Enkhsaikhan, at age 24 - tumor * Tushig (boy) 2years old * He received Jesus Christ 7 days before when he passed away. And I also become Christian and my son too. I am a follower of Jesus by all my heart and mind. * Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
1/2/2012 * Karen * Spouse - Don Age 67 - Hypertensive and Diabetic Cardiomyopathy * Daughter Andrea - 44; Son Kurt; - 41; 4 Grandchldren (15, 8, 6, 3) * My husband and best friend passed unexpectably in his sleep 1/2/12. We were not aware of any impending problems that would cause something like this so waking up to find him "gone" was a real shock! We had just celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary 3 days before. I am not able to stay alone due to some health issues of my own so I had to leave our home in TN and move in with our daughter in FL. We were together 24/7 and I depended on him for everything so in just a few seconds my life was turned "upside down"! I thank the Lord for helping me get through this first year in some very amazing ways. In Jeremiah 29:11 the Lord says "For I know the plans I have for you"..... I still do not know what all of those plans for me hold, but am trusting the Lord for direction each day. With all of that said, I still feel as though I have a huge hole in my heart and part of me went with him the day God called him home.
1/2/2011 * Sharon Vander Waal * Wayne, passed away after a 4 ½ year struggle with a rare neurological disease called Multiple systems atrophy type c * Three sons all married: Derrick, Troy, and Brian * Wayne was the love of my life, and we were married for over 39 years. * Wisconsin
1/03/2012 * Carol * Larry - Bladder Cancer * Sons: Edward (50) and Allan (46) * Larry moved to heaven the day before his 73rd birthday. Without my best friend and husband of 51 years, life continues on around me but I know my life has changed forever. I'm trying with God's help to adjust to the loneliness, cherish the memories and live my life as he would have wanted. But, it is so very hard to continue on without him. * Florida
1/03/2011 * Kaye * Ken Boyd, multiple organ failure * Kelly, 52 * Ky, 49 * Dated for 31/2 years, married for nearly 55 years. We grew up together. Was very out-going, loved sports, loved his children and grandchildren. Served in the Army for 3 years, was a car salesman, and worked with the Texas Youth Commission, a juvenile detention center. He worked with the student work program.
Was a baseball coach for many years, coaching son and grandson. I miss my guy. He always made me fill he was the luckiest guy in the world to be married to me.
1/4/2011 * Carrie * Darryl, age 48 - Sepsis Pneumonia * one daughter, Brittany, age 19 *
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I believe that is true even when God calls a loved one home. When Darryl would tell me he loved me, or had a promise to make to me he would end it by saying, “hard fast promise.” Darryl I want you to know I will love you forever and always, Hard Fast Promise. Love your wife, Carrie
1/10/2011 * Jean * Glenn, age 59. * Went into the hospital for a simple hernia repair. Due to the hospital not knowing how serious his prior heart condition was. Glenn passed away on January 10, 2011. I do not blame the medical staff, as each and every one of us has just a certain amount of time on earth. I do thank them for admitting it was human error - though in reality it wasn't, but I do thank them for taking what they have learned and using it in other cases. He had dedicated his life to the Lord when he was in his twenties, but did not fully embrace his walk until about three years before his death. He had a great respect and love for his aunt who used each and every day and each and every hour to speak of her Lord. Glenn emulated this in the last years, and it was a great blessing to hear of how his love for the Lord had affected others lives at and after his funeral. * He leaves two sons Geoff age 36 and Gregg age 30 and one daughter Gabrielle age 32. * God was merciful to us in that for a few months before the surgery we knew that his time was limited. Over these few months God gave us blessings in our relationship that still amaze me. Yes, I am lonely and miss him terribly but God is Good --All the time.
1/13/2009 * Wendy * Chris - Glioblastoma Mulitforme * Ian (17 months) and Claire (10 days old) * We miss you every day.
1/15/2011 * Lucy Anne * husband age 51 - from end-stage MS * sons Luke 23, Jake 20.
1/19/2011 * Jennifer * Alan, my husband of 24 years on due to multiple myeloma. * We have 3 children, Daniel 15yo, Amanda 12yo, and Adam 6yo. * We miss him.
1/20/2011 * Louise * Alan - Cardiac Arrest * My Love I Miss You. You Are With Jesus Now and i Want To Tell You So Much That If I Had to Do It All Over Again, i Would be A Better Wife & Friend. I Love You & I Always Will. You Loved Me Like No Other Man Could & Will Again. You Made Me See That We Are Able to Love Because Jesus Loved Us First.
1/21/09 * Stacy * Stan - Sarcoma metastasized to lungs and brain * Deacon, nearly 3 and Mathias, 1.5 * Stan was diagnosed when I was 8 mos pregnant with our second boy and passed away 15 months later. His progression was mercifully quick - it was a very painful journey for him. We miss him. * MA
1/31/2011 * Cindy * Barry - melanoma * Jeffrey (27), and Ryan (17) * In my Father’s House are many mansions ----until we join you----we carry your love in our hearts. * SC
