The Day Life Changed Forever
JANUARY

1/1/2015 * Laurie * Bill * It's been a year since my beloved husband Bill died suddenly due to heart issues. He was 69. On New Year's Eve one year ago, he died shortly before midnight while walking on the beach towards the bonfire we were having to celebrate the New Year. He never appeared for the bonfire and approximately at 3 AM I found his body on the beach. He was a wonderful and loving husband, father, and "Papa" to our grandchildren. He loved God and his family. I am so grateful to have had 43 wonderful years married to him.
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
1/6/2013 * Billie * Alvin* Went to heaven from complications of cirrohsis of the liver. Al had not been really well for 2-3 years as the disease progressed. The last 5 months he was still with me, we shared our hearts, forgave each other from past offenses and shared time together visiting our families. I'm so thankful to the Lord He gave us those last few months together to become closer than we had in years. He was able to reconnect with his three sons who came to visit 4 times those last months. He loved the Lord. Our first date was going to his church 33 years ago. We would have been married 32 years April 11th. I miss him so much. I love him more than I thought possible. I yearn for the day when we will be reunited in heaven. I love you, Alvin. Wait for me my love, I'll be there soon.
1/8/2014 * Sandie * My husband Kenny, went home one year ago on Thursday, January 8. My love had pancreatic cancer. We have a daughter Mary, 35, and through her our awesome grandson Thomas, who is 3 1/2. For some time he asked about his poppy, its so unfair. Kenny loved life. He was a hunter, fisherman, biker, Christian, and he was so looking toward to teaching Thomas all the man stuff. * I thank God for all the Christian care that He has surrounded me with in these past not even 2 years. Kenny was diagnosed January 10, 2013 and he passed January 8, 2014. * I'm so glad you're home Mr. Honey, I love you and miss you. And so does Mary and Thomas. I can't wait to be with you and to be praising God together once again.
1/9/2014 * Brenda * Mark went to Heaven at the age of 54 from a heart attack * Sheena 30, Kayla 27, Ashley 23 * He was the light of my life and was such a great husband, father, friend, brother and uncle. We miss him so very much and feel lost without him. We cling to God's Word, Love and Promises and wait for the day He brings us together again. Mark, thank you for 30 great years together here on earth, I can't wait to be with you for eternity in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You are always in my heart and on my mind, I miss you every minute and will love you forever. Always yours, Brenda

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.

1/17/2013 * Chris * Ron, age 68, diagnosed with desquamative interstitial pneumonitis in 1994 and told he had 3-6 months to live. Many people came to believe in the power of prayer, not simply because of his survival, but because of his humor and kindness in the face of much suffering over the years. We were friends for 30 years, married for 26 of those. Shortly after Christmas he developed pneumonia, but treatment wasn't working. He elected to go on a ventilator in the hopes of regaining strength. It was not to be--after two weeks sepsis set in, then organ failure. I made the agonizing decision to let him go. * He had three children (my stepchildren) - Ron 39, Christopher 37, and Jessica 32 * I'm trying to follow his example and favorite prayer: "Thank you Lord, for another day."

I will never be the same, but I know that God is not through with me. I am also comforted to know that he is with the LORD and I will see him again someday.
2/8/17 * Laura * Brent, age 46 * Died of a brain aneurism. * Brent was a Methodist Pastor and we were partners together in ministry. Married less than 5 years, our days were full of love, devotion, and serving God. We celebrated our anniversary every month. I think God somehow whispered into our hearts that we would only have a few years together and encouraged us to celebrate often. Our love grew day by day and we cherished each moment together. I gave myself wholly to Brent when we married. My life completely and joyfully revolved around him. I planned my days with him in mind and basically his schedule was my schedule. We were truly ONE. Oh how I miss the warmth of his touch, the sound of his voice, and the radiance of his smile. Trusting God in the midst of my tears and pain, knowing I will be with Brent one day in Heaven.

Some days are better than others as we move forward in life w/o him physically with us, but holding to memories and God’s Word which assures us of a great reunion * CoMo, MO
2/13/ 2014 * Hope * Arthur went home at 83 after four years of seriously declining health. We were 26 and 31 when the Lord brought us together for almost 54 precious years. For some reason we were unable to have children, but the Lord blessed us with opportunities to help other’s kids. A month before he went to Paradise with Jesus, Arthur wondered aloud why the Lord didn’t take him. He was never pain-free and life was getting too hard. Though he could get around with his walker, he was so weary. The second time he commented about the Lord’s allowing him to still be with me, I told him that it was because I needed him. But then I added that when life simply got too hard, it was okay to go. The day I admitted him to the hospital for the last time (though I didn’t know the end was so near), I told him again that if this was time, it was okay to leave me. He smiled and said he was okay then. But I am convinced overnight he changed his mind. He had made provision for me after his passing. He knew I would be cared for, and some day we’d be together forever. I spent several hours with him the next morning. Mid-afternoon I went home to take care of our dog. While I was gone I think he looked up to heaven and asked Jesus to come for him. I was on the way back to the hospital when the doctor called to tell me he had passed. I knew he was with the Lord enjoying His presence and a body that was whole. I loved him enough to let him go. He lives in my heart and will until I am with him forever. I know the Lord’s plans for our lives were/are perfect. Together we lived for Jesus and served Him as best we could. I rejoice that Arthur’s body is whole…and I can’t wait to join him. God’s grace meets all my daily needs. UPSTATE NY

3/10/ 2012 * Brenda * J.B.; Colorectal Cancer * Tumors were found in Jan. 2012. He fought a good fight at CTCA, but lost his battle here to multi-organ failure on March 10. He left this world with so much dignity and grace, that it would be a disgrace to him for me not to continue on with dignity and grace. But it is definitely not easy to go on without him after almost 24 years of marriage! God has given me the courage to keep moving forward so far and I know HE won't let me down. That doesn't stop the emotions of grief from being there and wanting to have JB back again!
3/11/2017 * Charlene* Robert, 73 *  I lost the love of my life, my soulmate and best friend just 17 days after we found out his liver was full of tumors.  I never even had time to wrap my head around his being sick before I was faced with the fact that I must somehow face life without him.  We were together 24/7 and where I was so was he.  So hard to go on without him and learn how to go on by myself.   If it weren't for my Christian faith, I couldn't go on. * Lakeland, Fl.

Our lives have been forever changed, but God is faithful and good and we trust the plans He has for us!

We were married nearly 46.5 years and have 3 wonderful sons, Al 36, Chris 34 and Jeff 32. * This journey of grief and mourning has been absolutely overwhelming. Losing Allen rocked my world and left my life in shambles! Thanks to God’s amazing grace I am making progress . Being the one left behind is very difficult , but God is forever faithful!

I know he is with our Lord and I can hardly wait for the day I will see both God and Eddie!

4/2/2012 * Darlene * John, age 54 * Melissa 27, Shawna 24, one granddaughter age 21 months * Cause of Death - Drowning *John was an avid Hunter and Fisherman all his teenage and adult life.
The fact that he only had daughters didn't stop him from teaching them everything he enjoyed, and when they got married passed it onto his son-in-laws as well.  John left for his final ice fishing trip with friends on March 30, 2012 and on April 2nd the ATV he was on fell through the ice, he tried making it back to shore; the friend he was with tried to get to him, but it wasn't meant to be. John's last words to his friend were to tell Darlene "I Love her and to pray for him"! My life since then has been a roller coaster of emotions, and I thank the Lord for sites like this that let you know you are not alone. John was the love of my life and so much more. I praise God for the 31 years we had together, and the chance he got to experience being a Grandpa. God is my strength!!! * Manitoba, Canada

4/7/2012 * Sue * Mike* - My precious husband battled a skin cancer for 40 years and always won, until a new cancer came along and took his life. He was a precious soul. He always stayed positive, grateful, and thankful for each day, even though he underwent over 14 major surgeries to his face, resulting in the loss of his right eye, skull bone, palate and was left with his face badly disfigured. We were together 23 years, married for 16. He loved me more than any person could and I have been so lost without him. I know God has a plan for me and I hold on to His promises every day. His promise of eternity is my focus. Thank you for this site, it has already brought me great comfort. God bless all who mourn, it has been pure anguish...

I felt and still feel lost and confused, but the number of people his life touched was amazing!! There was literally no room left in the church! People had to park down the road and many stood outside the door! I've never seen that many people at a funeral before! It was truly awesome.
4/16/2015 * Maria * Kevin; unknown virus, he died the day before my birthday and 12 days before our third anniversary. * Owen, 19 (my son from my first marriage) and Victoria, 30 (my daughter, also from my first marriage. She and her husband have six wonderful children who bring much joy to my heart). My husband had six children from his first marriage, two are teens still at home with their mother. * This is the second time I have been widowed in 6 years. It's very difficult, but God is my Rock and my Fortress. When I think of my husband, I think of this verse: "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." He was a man who hungered and thirsted after righteousness - and he was satisfied. * Ohio

He was doing so very, very well and went to physical therapy for the Parkinson's. But one Friday things just didn't seem right. Things went from bad to worse. Carl was admitted to the hospital on Sunday afternoon and died the next night. * I was so unprepared.  He was anointed before death, in fact three times. So I know he's with the Lord and now I only wish I could die too, in fact I'm looking forward to it. As you can tell, I'm in bad shape but thanks for listening.

His special buddy, Ellis Litteral, age 13. * -- we had just returned from our district church assembly and he had preached on Sunday (seemed fine and had been to his uncles visitation service Sunday night as his uncle was buried on the day he died -- very hard for his dear mother). We have been married 21 years (both our second marriage) although we dated in high school. He had left his direction with God and when we got together he was saved and took up his calling again to pastor. He became an ordained elder. He was getting ready to graduate with a BSN in ministerial studies. He was the pastor of a small Nazarene church (a great family). He was my husband and I loved him very much. He is missed by many and by me.

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.

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

We had time to discuss the fact that he knew he was going to the Lord - was saved when he was in his 20's......and was very much as peace when the Lord took him home. Mostly worried about leaving me behind - said he would be waiting for me when it is my time. I'm so grief stricken even after 9 months! So many changes and though my faith in God is strong - the pain is still strong. I love the Lord and rely on Him. It is still very hard - so many, many tears! Still seems surreal. * Tennessee

OCTOBER
10/01/2012 * Gareth * Clare (lung cancer/ stroke) * We’d just moved to start a new life, Clare had a “chest infection” turned out to be pleurisy (turned out to be lung cancer). Until the week before she died we expected her to get better but then she had a stroke. The last week was absolutely amazing (the family worshipped and prayed together at 3pm everyday) (but I wish we could have talked to each other). Clare died at the end of our singing “Jesus we celebrate your Victory” but my life has been blown out of the water * Aberystwyth, Mid Wales
10/02/2015 * Maria * Dave, heart attack * Lydia, 30, and Bethany, 29 * My husband and best friend passed away suddenly from a heart attack at 56. We were married for 34 years, and he was a pastor for 24 years. He loved people fiercely and unconditionally. He was a wonderful, godly father to our two daughters, and he delighted in his grandson (born and died on Sept. 10, 2012) and his granddaughter, Hazel (born May 6, 2014). He loved carrying Hazel around and showing her off to everyone and anyone. Thank you, Lord, that you put this man in my life. He was like King David, a man after Your Own Heart. * Ohio
10/03/2011 * Sandi * Roger my 'One True Love' the Lord so graciously chose & blessed me with. *  Jessica 34, Jeremy 33, & our grandkids Levi 13, Ali 10, Alicia 10, Austin 5 & Jackson 3. * He had colon cancer and filled up with blood clots. Roger said "Don't keep me alive."  He knew where he was going, Heaven.  He was in such excruciating pain. He was tired of fighting.  He slept quite a bit the last 2 to 3 years.  Little did we realize God was slowly taking him away from us.  Otherwise I would have fell apart.  We were closer than sardines (for a lack of a better word)  So close. It was easy to let him go after witnessing all his agony.  We asked him several times between me and the nurses, "Are you sure Roger??"  Two hrs. later he slipped away into the promised land Heaven our 'Home Sweet Home'.  He said "Sorry, I'm sorry."  "That's alright Rog" I comforted him. * He was a Monumental man, a walking Angel, a gentle giant, soft spoken.  A Great Man.  Many men I have observed but he surpasses most of them.  He was a strong hard working man, a man of integrity & great character,  I was so proud of.  If anyone knew him it made me proud.  He was a stable man.  The man of my dreams.  I miss being told "Your Beautiful, your Special."  He made me feel like a million bucks even more than that.  I miss that.  He was my Dream come true.  He was a greater man than I even realized, at his wake there was a line over four hrs. long!!  That's my man!!  A Christian man was he.  He was 59.  The Best is before me not behind me.  The Best is yet to come, in Heaven!! Our kisses & hugs will continue on the other side. *  Upper Wisconsin
10/05/2013 * Donna * Jim passed away 3 years ago from heart problems. * This was our second marriage for both of us and we were going to celebrate our 40th anniversary, but the Lord Jesus decided to call him home. Looking forward to that day we will be together again in Heaven!

10/10/2012 * Soledad (Soli) * David M Serrato, age 64, passed away at almost the midnight hour. * I was there at ICU with him till the end. He loved me soo much and I love him soo much still now.
He contracted West Nile virus in the worst outbreak in US history; he fought for 3 months and 5 days till he went with God to Heaven. My husband used to pray over me when I would sleep. Because he was older than me, he knew he could go before me. He would tell me how he prayed to God for years, asking for permission to be my Guardian Angel when/if he passed before me. He taught me to learn to like myself, to be strong and to trust in God. He always told me this: "Jesus is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings and one day every knee shall bow and every tongue confess He is Lord...." God joined our prayers together, we met, and we became a family for almost 12 yrs. I feel lost without him, I thought he was MY assignment to take care of for the rest of my life, but now I feel lost, hurt, abandoned by God some times even. * Central Texas
10/13/2010 * Glenda * Jim- He died suddenly from a heart attack while playing golf.

10/15/2010 * Doris * Frank died at age 76 of metastasized lung cancer six weeks after diagnosis, the shortest six weeks of my life. Stomach cancer had spread and filled his lungs and liver and we never knew it; occasionally he would say, “I don’t feel good today,” but it never stopped him from his work. *  Frank had a daughter, Debbie who was 53, from a first marriage of 21 years; I had 2 sons from a first marriage of 18 years, Mark was 46, and Michael who was killed in an auto accident in 2000 at age 34. * Frank and I were married for 32 years. He was the hardest working man I’ve ever known, a Supervisor in the Heavy Machine Shop at Newport News Shipbuilding, had a part-time tree business for 35 years and he did the climbing – his last tree was six weeks before he died. He was known as Mr. Fix-It and helped anybody who needed him. Frank was a “man’s man,” hunted, fished and he left a big empty hole in many lives. I so miss his arms around me and the strength of his presence. I was blessed to be married to Frank. * Yorktown, Virginia.
10/16/2011 * Lisa * Bill. He went home to be with our Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 16, 2011.

Our grandchild was 1 year and 1 week old. * My husband was disabled with many physical challenges, but his heart was always fine.

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!
11/13/2011 * Dodi Bivins * Thomas J. Bivins - age 54 - massive stroke * Daughter Myra J. Bivins - age 25 * Thomas was a true humanitarian to the very end. If there is such a thing as loving too much I can say with all honesty, he did. His first love and devotion was to the Lord, secondly to me and our
daughter Myra, thirdly to anyone who was hurting or in need. We hear today a lot about setting boundaries - Thomas forgot to do this, His energy was endless, he treated all people with grace and dignity, and was never a respector of persons.  Thomas was a Bi-vocational Pastor and Funeral Director/Embalmer. Pastoral care and Funeral Service to him was a mission field and ministry. I shared with my sister the other day, that now Tom is in heaven we know he's not doing any embalming. One of his favorite songs he would sometimes sing to me was "I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You." Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday, everytime our heart beats we sense their very presence, always near, still loved, still missed. Psalm 116:15 - Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints. This is not good-bye, just good-night ~

And best of all is the hope of a grand reunion someday! * PA
