6/01/2012 * Denise * Gordon age 62 - stage IV colon cancer * I have 3 adult daughters, Wendee, Tara & Heidi.*I also have 7 grandchildren and 1 in the oven. * My sweetheart of 40 years went to be with the Father after a three year 3 month journey like no other we had ever been on before. When first diagnosed we prayed for healing and never stopped but we also prayed THY will be done. We knew Yeshua was there each and every day walking with us, guiding us, encouraging us, intervening with miracles. We saw the cancer go away twice only to return after coming off treatment for 8 weeks. There were ups and downs, praise and anguish all the while knowing that our redeemer lives and helps always. I find myself physically, mentally, and spiritually exhausted. This came over me a few weeks after the funeral and after out of town family returned home. My help comes from the scripture and a book on grieving a friend gave me. She had lost her husband 1 year ago. The book was just what I needed. Thank you for this blog. I have found help already as I read the many posts. I never imaged I would find myself in these waters at this time in my life. Your blog and others like it are like a lifeline to me. Thank You for being here. * Florida

6/4/2014 * Debbie (56) * Ron, age 64 was killed in a motorcycle accident, due to vehicle failure. * Daughter Amanda (31) son Aaron (28) Step Sons, Jimmy (34) and Jonathan (29) * It was an unexpected accident that caught all by shock that my husband - the excellent mechanic that he was, to pass away on our beloved huge touring motorcycle. Until the investigation was completed and proven that it was nothing my husband could have or didn't do that caused the motorcycle to fail, it was extremely difficult to be out in public or to have any contact with the majority of people in our lives. We spent our entire dating and married life (18.5 years) riding all over this beautiful USA. God was merciful and granted my husband his wish. When it was his time "to go" he wanted it to be doing something he loved doing. To God be the glory, through all of this. Ron didn't suffer, no one else was involved and I was not on the motorcycle with him. * Warren, OH
