Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Michelle. You're still in our prayers, as you go forward in the sad time. I can't imagine what you must be going through. I would be lost, without my Carol.:crying:
"Rocky" thanks for being a part of this board and for staying in touch with us!
I feel as if i knew "Michelle", if I have the right to do that?
As much as she loved you and the kids she is happy to be where she's at right now and knows that because of your "Faith" in Christ that one day you will join her!
It's an awesome thought that her "Heart' continues to beat in a persons body in AZ!
He or She is now a member of your family and very grateful to say the least!
I lost my Father,2 uncles and Grandfather all were killed at different times, my father was murdered whenI was 28! That's as close as I can come to relating to your situation plus my 3 best friends who I lost in front of me in "Nam"!
Your kids are looking to you for emotional support, so stay strong for them!
As you know there may be a "Ripple Effect" in the next few months with them, so be gentle as they come to grips with this!
We're here for you Bro, just let us know if you need us!
Believe it or not, there's nothing much I can offer beyond what the guys are saying, eventually the sorrow dulls, what's left is the good memories and in the end that's all we really have. It's a grevious thing when a loved one is taken so soon, I can only imagine your pain, sadness and the hole left in your life. This too will pass.
Dear Rocky... May the lord bless your family, and help you always to keep Michelle in your memory forever ... ... I lost both parents, and a Mother-in law , within 6 terrible years... I can share your grief... I found this site very helpful on those days when I did not want to even go to work : http://angel-on-my-shoulder.com/ and I think this one helped the most : Do not stand at my grave and weep;I am not there, I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow;I am the diamond glints in snow;I am the sunlight on ripened grain;I am the gentle autumn rain.I am the swift, uplifting rushOf quiet birds in circled flight;I am the soft stars that shine at night.Do not stand at my grave and cry:I am not there. I did not die. Take care ... SilverDave
I just got back from working on an Emmaus Retreat and found that Michelle had passed on. I'm so sorry to hear that. I could tell by your posts and others that she was a special woman, much like mine Sally. My heart goes out to you and you will continue to be in my prayers.
Rocky and family my thoughts are with you during this heart wrenching time. I've been throught it with the love of my life lost her at 47. It will take a long time for the pain to ease and it will never quite go away. , but it will get better. Keep busy and allow family and friends to keep you occupied. I wanted to be by myself and that was a mistake. Hang in there and God Bless.She will continue to be with you.
