Memorial Wall for February 2013

Here's the February 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.

2/9/2011 * Lynn * Frank-Head and neck cancer * one son, Jamie, age 31 * So glad you cherished me and I you, for 36 wonderful years. So proud of your love for your fellow man and how you ministered to them
2/10/2012 * Judy * Bill, had surgery and didn't wake up. He had been diagnosed with several serious health issues past 6 years. * Kim (49), Scott (45), Tim (43), Heather (35), Josh (26). * Bill, you will live on in our hearts forever. 
2/13/2012 * Carol * Rich. No illness, died suddenly of a pulmonary embolis just one month shy of his 48th birthday. * Two daughters - Ashley (22), and Cassidy (20) * An outgoing, lively person. He worked with troubled youth for over 27 years. I miss him more and think about him more than I thought possible. * Upstate New York
2/13/2009 * Bridgett * Kent - brain cancer * Joshua (7), Ethan (5) and Nolan (4) * 2 Cor. 1:9 & 1 Thes. 4:13-14.
2/15/2000 * Ferree * Bruce-brain anyuerism * Brooke,19; Lisa,16; Brad, 14 * We'll love you forever. (grateful God sent Tom, remarried in 2002).
2/19/2011 * Cheri * Ward died of a massive heart attack after having back pains that his doctor said was muscle pain. He worked hard all that week, so it was unexpected. * Son, Paul was 40, and our daughter Keli, was 8. * Ward died in Hawaii. I have since moved to California to be near my son and his family.
2/19/2005 * Vivian * Dale, 67, died in a "one in a million accident" as stated in an article in the Golf Magazine. He loved playing golf and retired early to be a Marshall at the local golf course. Our son Scott was playing golf one day, and Dale was woking so he went to watch him. He hid behind a tree like he should, but Scott's drive hit a tree branch and then hit Dale in the back of his neck. It ruptured the large blood vessel in his neck and he was unconcious within minutes. He had told me 3 days before that when he died he wanted me to donate his organs (which I did) because he knew he would die before me. * Married 43 yrs * Lynnette (41), Philip (39), Scott (31), Deanna & Dean (29)* You were loved by everyone who know you but especially by me. You taught me what love was since I had not experienced it before. I was so privileged to have you as a husband and father for our children. I miss you more than you could have ever known. I wish I had told and showed you more than I did how much you meant to me. I am so thankful that you taught us all to love God and we all look forward to spending eternity with you.
2/21/2012 * Gail * Lawrence, died of Colon cancer, aged 54 * Nat (31), TJ (29), James (26), Mandy(20) * I am so grateful to know my honey is in the Lord's hands and that we will meet again at the Resurrection. It has been a hard year and I have missed him sorely, selling the house and moving and then putting on a 21st party for my daughter last month was the hardest. I have been receiving your emails and they have been a great comfort to me! Bless all you other widows who are here for each other! - New Zealand.
2/24/2012 * LoriAnne * Roger - a 2 year battle with Pancreatic Cancer * 3 children (adults): Anna (32, Sarai (28), Jared (22) * I never knew how horrendous this 'grief thing' was going to be, until I was thrown into it! Yes, my husband fought this dreaded cancer for 2 years; but we held fast that the Lord was going to heal him here on this earth. The final 2 mths, he was very sick & I had to watch as the cancer ravaged his body. I am thankful he is now whole once again & yes, HEALED; & with our Savior & full of joy! But I that remain here on this earth, desperately miss him & find myself torn in 2. We shared such a complete love & he was the dearest man. Will these tears ever stop flowing....I am so alone without him. I put all my faith & trustin my Lord & I know He will get me thru this one day at a time. As the Bible says; HE is my husband now & takes care of the widows! * Oregon
2/27/2012 * Karen * Frank, age 58, heart rupture * two sons, Nate 27, Brandon 26 and one grandson whom he loved, Luke 28 months. * We were married 34 years. We were talking out in the yard and he just fell forward. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I don't understand but I choose to trust the Lord. It's a daily choice.
2-28-2010 * Ramona * Jimmy – congestive heart failure * Jessica, 21 *It’s such a comfort to know you are with Jesus, but we miss you still and will love you always * FL
