my husband

Dear pacer and ICD friends,

I just wanted you all to know that my husband lost his battle with heart disease last night. He was very very sick and just couldn't do it anymore. I want to thank you all for being such a great support and source of information while I was searching for answers for him.

Please keep up your good work and stay strong. God bless you all.

Kathy

I have no words...

but shall try. I am not sure when you will be back to post but letting us know shows that this site has been an important part of your lives. I hope you know that you will always be welcome on this site. Not that I` can speak for everyone but I know alot of those with their large hearts.No pun intended. I can not express my deep deep sadness for your husband ,you and your family.He fought a valiant fight and with that he did it with you at his side. Who could ask for more than to take ones last glance in this world at the woman one loved most in this lifetime. I have faith that you will meet again and he will save you a seat until your journey here is finished. I hope you think about the good times . When I thought I was only going to have 6 months or so to live my husband asked me what I wanted to do before it was my time to walk with the Lord. I turned to him and said ," I am doing it" Just being with my family and holding my husbands hand was shall we say heaven on earth. SO though these days will be hard on you please know that I beleive your husband was doing exactly what he wanted to knowing that his time in this place was soon to be over. Cherish those memories but live your life as you are now living for the two of you. That is what I told my husband. Remember there are others that care and you can talk to as sometimes it is hardest to talk to those closest to us.
With a heavy heart truly,
Susan

Words cannot express how all your pacer friends on this site are deeply sorry for your loss.
From your posts, we were able to get a glimpse of what you and your family were going through. And from these posts, we know for a fact that you have a wonderful tenacious spirit and also such a loving and caring attitude. I know your husband would agree with this 100%.
Anyway, you and your family will be in my prayers, and I pray that God give you strength during this time; He is there to hear your prayers...He understands.

Therefore, I'm reminded of one of my favorite Bible verses that has helped me numerous times, and I hope it will give you the same comfort:
"Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
Hebrews 4:14-16

Please keep in touch; you're still a part of this family of pacers.
take care and God bless

Comfort in prayers...

Dear Susan,

Like the others I am so sorry for the loss of your dear husband. The two of you obviously had a wonderful marriage and you were such a tremendous support and caretaker to him. That is the kind of love most people long for in their marriages. If you are believer then you know where he is and is no longer in pain.. You know, too, that you will see him again when it is your time. If you are not a believer please know that those of us who are will continue praying for you and holding you close in our hearts. Let the prayers of all of us lift you up and give you comfort and peace. Please continue to be a part of our group. Take care of yourself - I ask God to bless and comfort you and your family in this time of grief.
Sharon

Your sad news

I just want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this time.

I am so sorry.

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to tell God
to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to
the world, and sings a silent prayer
that makes the rain cry. People dis-
appear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to
bed, wake up grass, and spin the
earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
can see them dancing in a cloud during
the day-time, when they're supposed
to be sleeping. They paint the rain-
bows and also the sunsets and make
waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to
wishes. And when they sing wind-
songs, they whisper to us, don't
miss me too much. The view is nice
and I'm doing just fine.
- Ashley

With deepest Sympathy,

Dominique - Thank you for posting the very lovely piece by "Ashley". Is it from a book, a card or some other written piece?
