I miss you...

Later this morning, i will go and do the most difficult thing i have ever had to do...make funeral arrangements for the love of my life. My precious, precious Roy passed away during a catastrophic triple bypass on Thursday night. Oh, how my heart aches to just have a little more time with the only man i have every loved. But I know that he is whole again, and that he is loving being with his dad, who he lost at the tender age of 16. I am certain that his dad and mom met him at the gates to the most beautiful kingdom he has every seen, and ushered their firstborn into his new home. I know that God will guide us down this difficult road, but i miss him...terribly. My heart is broken...i just wasn't ready for him to go...but he was. His fight had been difficult...too many battles for one man to face...and his sweet body just gave out. He blessed my life for 30 years and gave me 3 wonderful children, 2 amazing stepsons and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I miss him...so much.

My heart hurts so much for you Mindy! I know there are no words that can any human can say to ease the pain. Oh, but the peace that passes all understanding comes from the Lord our God. I am praying for your entire family as you grieve. We love you so much!
