In Loving Memory

23

On March 9th, 2013 at 8:12am my husband took his own life and went home to be with our Lord.  The past week has been the longest week of my life, I feel like it has been an eternity.  We held his Memorial Service this afternoon and it was simply beautiful.  It all came together and I couldn't have asked for it to be better.  I have been surrounded by family and friends since this happened.  The outpouring of support has been overwhelming.  This has been very hard to take, and we are all having a rough time.  Now it's time to pick up the pieces and move on, but how?  I hardly know where to start.  My only solace is knowing that he is no longer in pain.


"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." - 2 Timothy 4:7

God, I miss him so much.
