Memorial Wall for December 2015

Here's the December listing from the Memorial Wall here at Widows Christian Place. Each one tells of a sacred life and people who loved each other.
I hope you'll copy it and refer to it throughout the 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 your precious memory.

12/07/2012 * Karla * Matt * It was a fatal seizure brought on by Wellbutrin, Zofran and Ritalin., Matt was only 24 years young. We have no children. At the time we had only one cat, Grizzabella The Glamour Cat, she was at home alone with Matt when he collapsed. I came home and found Matt collapsed on the floor of our Master Bedroom non responsive. This past month was nine months, but it does't feel like it.

I am thankful for our 43 years of marriage. Thankful for our loving and growing together through thick and thin. I look forward to our reunion and being together with Jesus forever. I am thankful for being drawn closer to Jesus and thankful that He is taking even greater care of me during this part of my journey than when my husband was here. Jesus is my strength when I am weak, some days I am weaker than others and need His strength more. * I miss my dear husband and best friend daily. I feel his love and encouragement all around me in our little haven we created here on earth. I am thankful for all that he did to take care of us through the years. * Florida

Played golf two days before suffering a massive seizure and stroke. On life support for two days before being declared brain dead. We met in college and were married for 52 years, he was my best friend, my lover, and my all. He was a good man who loved doing for others. He is sorely missed. This is how I feel: Lost and adrift on a sea of sorrow, my ship sails on towards unknown tomorrows. (editorial note: the line of poetry is from an original poem by Pat Loflin. Please do not copy, thank you. fbh)

He has three adult children and I have one adult son.* I can't say enough how very much I love him and miss him so.

  1. Jimmy McCartney was 51 when he was diagnosed with Larynx Cancer. He had to have his larynx removed and his beautiful voice was gone forever. He fought so hard to live and lost his battle this past September. I miss him so much and these past three months have been hard, especially Christmas . I am especially grateful for my two beautiful children and grandchildren.

  2. Dear Kathy, I'm so sorry for these difficult losses. Cancer has no mercy, but the hand of the Lord does as you've experienced too, with the gratitude you express for your children and grandchildren. May the Lord hold you close in this coming new year. It's very challenging, but there are precious treasures to glean along the way and the tough days won't last forever.
