"Laura, I do understand. There was always a look in husband's eyes of desperation although outwards he was fighting as hard as he could to live. I have pictures of him when he was well and there was a sparkle in his eye. As soon as he got sick…"
"I feel the same as you do. I saw Bo in my dreams twice and it was a fast glimpse and he was not relating to me in the dream. I ask him everyday to please come to me in a dream if only for one time to hold me, kiss me and call me Baby…"
"Kim, you have just read my mind. I think about what you have just written all the time. We had almost two years from the time my Bo was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer till he passed. All our time was spent fighting to keep him alive. It's…"
"I wish you knew that I think you are one of the sweetest men I know and LouAnn was blessed to have your love. Some of you wishes did come true. Your post comforted me and made me feel better. I do feel your hugs all the way across the blue Pacific…"

LINDA: I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH GEORGE. YOU SEE GEORGE WOULD ONLY EAT 1 MEAL A DAY AND THAT WAS DINNER. AND WHEN HE DID EAT DINNER IT WAS LIKE HIS LAST MEAL. ON WEEKENDS HE WOULD ONLY WANT SOMETHING IF HE SEES ME EATING. I WOULD ASK HIM DO YOU WANT A ENGLISH MUFFIN HE WOULD SAY NO,. BUT WHEN HE SEEN THAT IT WAS DONE HE DECEIDED TO HAVE ONE AND SAY THANKS HONEY HOW DID YOU KNOW I WANTED ON THEN IT WOULD BE CAN I HAVE ANOTHER ONE FOR LUNCH IF I HAD A BLT I WOULD ASK HIM IF HE WANTED ONE AND YOU CAN GUESS WHAT THE ANSWER WAS BUT WHEN HE SEEN ME EATING AND I WENT TO THE RESTROOM WHEN I CAME BACK IT WAS GONE HE WOULD SAY IT WAS GOOD
Loni and I had many missunderstandings, but one of us was always right. It was usually Loni that was right. I would talk to much while Loni was trying to read her bible and she would go into the bathroom to read in slience. I would feel bad about that. Loni knew i couldn't shut up long enough. When she was done she would come back out and be smiling at me with that look; what am I going to do with you !
And that would make me feel better. We knew enough about each other that those little things didn't matter all that much.
I want to express my condolences to you due to the loss of your husband. Although the emptiness left behind after losing a loved one never fully disappears, you could find comfort in knowing that God wants to bring them back to life and make all suffering go away.
The Bible holds many promises for the future that assure us that our loved ones will be with us once again and very soon. Job was sure of this when he said: “If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait, until my relief comes. You will call, and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning.” Yes, just as Job mentioned, Jehovah God has a deep desire to resurrect all of those who have lost their lives. He has empowered his Son, Jesus Christ, to do this in the near future.
When Jesus was here on earth he promised: “For just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes those alive whom he wants to. Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5: 21, 28, 29) Linda, you can be sure that your husband will be amongst the ones who will hear Jesus’ voice and comes back to life. When that happens you will both be able to put all the pain and suffering behind you. Revelation 21: 4 promises: “And he [referring to God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
I truly hope you can find comfort in these words and scriptures and that they help you go on while you wait to see your husband again.

I miss him so much....I just want to feel better...
I will be thinking of you, Linda. Douglas died one week after our 26th anniversary (July 2009) so July will be most difficult for me. Our anniversary and his death plus June 28th will be his birthday. We were going to renew our vows as well. This past weekend I found our wedding album and inside was a copy of our vows (we wrote our own). I will read them out loud on July 9th -- and probably cry. Thank goodness for Ben & Jerry's!! Take care and know you are in my thoughts.
