  17. Dear Kathy,
    I have been following your blog for some months now and have been awed by your strength and attitude. I am so glad that you had these last months to create lasting memories and time to say those things that you wanted and needed to say to each other. Your David is surely resting in the arms of his Lord and Savior...what sweet comfort that is.
    Peace to you and your family as you make your way through these next days.

What a wonderful tribute to your love and the life he lived. I couldn't help but think of the words of the old hymn 'Safe in the arms of Jesus'. Thank you for sharing a bit of your dear one with us.

  43. Dearest, Kathy. I just fell speechless when I decided to come by for a visit today to find that your love had gone on. Made me think of my own love and how precious our time is on this earth with the ones we hold dear. I am positive that you will see him again and that he is in the best hands until you see him again. I'll be praying for the comfort of you and your family.

  44. Kathy- You have been on my mind constantly in the last few days. Now I know why! I am sitting here with tears in my eyes...I cannot believe that this happened so quickly...that he is gone from this world. I know that you have a deep faith in the afterlife and what is to come. However, I don't know that even that assurance makes this life reality any easier to bear. I am sad for you, my friend, sad and yet I know there is some peace now in your heart because your beloved is removed from the pain and illness that kept him captive. God bless you, dear Kathy. I hope we can connect again soon! Hugs & love to you- Diana

  46. Dear Kathy,
    I am so sorry for you and the family to hear the news of Daves homegoing!! Praise the Lord you know where he is, and that you will one day be reunited, but I know that doesn't delete the pain for you and the family, but I am sure this time has prepared you to let him go. I know that first hand from watching my parents and Jims' parent go thru sicknesses, especially his dad, he had pancreatic cancer, and was in so much pain at the end. We were praying for the Lord to please take him.

    What a wonderful way to break the news to us and to pay tribute to the wonderful man he was.

    I am crying for you cause I just can't imagine
    what this has to be like for you, but I know you love the Lord and I know He will carry you thru this painful time. We have been and will continue to pray for you and the family hon.
    Again my deepest sympathies to you!!
    Love, Nellie

  65. Oh I am so sorry! I am truly touched by your love for each other. I hazard a guess that at least half of us commenting, have never loved or been loved like you have in our entire lives. You were given a gift most of us will never experience, along with a deep sorrow we will also never experience. Oh what a loss. When you are ready please come back, we are here to listen, we will cry with you and eventually laugh with you. JUst know we care!

I once read that the sympathy of others has the power to lessen the burden of loss for those most afflicted...please allow me to offer my deep, deep sympathy for the loss of your life mate, true love, best friend.

I pray that each good thought of comfort and sympathy we all offer helps to alleviate your suffering in any/all ways possible. My heart is with you. Blessings and good thoughts to you and yours.
