My wife died Sunday, 12/20/2020
Posted by oldermodelguy on Saturday, December 26, 2020 4:50 AM

I awoke @ 1am to her calling to me in desperation, her chest heaving, said she was burning up. I've never heard that particular voice come from her in 47 years. I felt her forhead it was cold but she wanted a wet cloth. Ran to the bathroom to wet a facecloth, returned to her staring at the ceiling dead. The entire incident couldn't have been 4 minutes at most. I knew she was gone. Called 911, which they came and tried for 30 minutes, and called it then and there. Heart attack. But she knew the Lord and I believe I have been gifted with a vision of her in heaven that gives me a great sense of peace between the sobs and tough moments. I can function some knowing/believing in our saviors promises and that she is with Him. Also I know the purpose of why we took in her x coworker who ran into tough times, who has turned out to be a blessing in this house in this time. A grace filled woman full of help and love for believing brothers and sisters. Amen

My Firend;

 By the Grace of GOD, I was there for my two wives, one at home, one in a care facility. They gently left, But the Pain! I carry your pain as well. She is with God now and I believe she knows your pain as well. Mourn then Continue your life. She would want that. BUT, Never forget all the moments you can, Good or Bad.Then Smile and say goodnight each and every night. She hears you.

Words are so inadequate at times like these. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I am so glad that you have your faith in Him to strengthen you during these difficult times. Clearly your wife was a blessing to so many while she was here.

I am filled with sorrow to be receiving your message. There is nothing I could say that would mean anything to you at this time.

I believe you have already described the blessings of our father in heaven. He has given you the peace and understanding which you have already described.

I will pray for you, your family, and anyone in your circle dealing with your loss.

Thank you all, I just felt compelled to share here in the forum and if mods bounce it so be it.. All of your replies have not gone unnoticed and again thank you so much.. Who so ever would come to the Lord please do it now, we have no idea how short a time we may have left. As my pastor friend and I say so often " have you ever noticed on a birth certificate there is one date, no line there for an expiration date but we all have one". Man, Dawn went quick, praise God she knows Him. He just plain and simply took her home. I celebrate that because I knew her detination and knew our hearts for ministry and whole purpose is to go home. Her life was a living testemony. Course, in our flesh and hearts, myself and adult children, relatives and closest friends suffer seemingly in waves. We are designed to mourn. But in our spirits we know where she is, this life is so short even if we live to be 100yo it's but a mere flash in eternity.

God bless you all today. I'm able to begin functioning. Got to the bank to change some account access etc, did laundry.Was wiped out by noon time, my daughter came by and folded the laundry. She brought lazagna that was to be finished cooking and I have that in the oven now ( it's actually making me hungry lol ). My son is coming by today, he is unsaved and I witnessed to him earlier in the week. He now wants to talk, which is amazing. So well, thanks again I have to go tend to this lazagna !
