Today is Chris's birthday. It was so different then how it should have been. There was no cake, there was no date night, card or presents. The Tigers game was on the radio in the car, i turned that immediately off knowing it would have been on if Chris was still here. I feel guilt that none of this is the same, but i know I can not live as though he is still here. All of this, living without him is so unbelievably hard. The loneliness and the pain of him not being here is comparable, as i have… Continue

A letter about your Daddy in you

Dear Gabby,

Its been a little over five months since your Daddy went to live with Jesus. You're 15 months old and your Daddy is coming out in you more than ever before. When the sun was too bright or an internal concentration took over, your Dad's eyes would narrow and his mouth would stay slightly open. You have that same look.

Your across the face half smile with your top teeth showing is your Daddy. Your love of bouncy balls, basketballs, tennis balls, plastic baby… Continue

Daddy's Eyes

Dear Gabby,

Do you remember your Daddy’s eyes?  His eyes showed you who he was, and who you were to him. If you can’t remember I will tell you about them as best I can. When your Daddy looked at you, love and adoration was spoken into your heart. When you first started to smile it was because of an uninhibited reaction by your Daddy’s look of unrelenting love that radiated…


A Birthday and a Hope

DSC_0025-2 Happy Birthday my big one year old! Wow, what a day! Did you realize that 38 people came to celebrate your life today? Did you also realize that all of your friends, “brothers” and “sisters” (the kids) outnumbered the mommy’s and daddy’s? Just so that you are aware, we are not doing this every year. You will not  have your own memory of this day, so I am going to do my best in giving you some of my favorite highlights.


I was holding you as the…

I also longed and still do to see him again and be with him.  It is amazing that most people on this site are Love of your Life marriages.  Life without these special partners is shocking and terrible.  3 miracles happened when he passed away in front of me at home.  I  went down 30 lbs in weight and I was not 'fat' before. 

You husband's photo is sad but there is a quiet beauty in his face.  So many wonderful men being taken.. I got the thought that they are being taken for God;s army and oddly enough was given a book by Billy Graham and he said exactly the same thing!

I see visions of our beloved riding on horses behind the Lord as he arrived to take us home. Gina blessings and love

My Roses  Gina tried to leave a message on your other website,, but  not sure it  got saved. It said something and then vanished. Tried to tell you how this photo and your thoughts are so like mine ... I also left on your website a comment that there is an article I posted on People of faith group  on this WV website - about being reunited with  our husbands etc.  About heaven.  Also about Testimony of Heaven which is a video online by Pastor Oden.  I lost my husband to cancer .. he looked so young, and then became so thin and fragile.  He was and is the love of my life.
