    It will be soon, I think. Please keep praying for an anxiety free and pain free passing. That would be the greatest gift my husband, our families and I could receive at this moment.

    I was with him when he passed away yesterday, and was holding his hand. He had so many people praying for him from friends, family, and those he never met to have a peaceful passage to Heaven, and those prayers were answered.

    I'm very thankful that I have faith that he and our son are in Heaven and that I will see them both again. Hopefully, that thought will help on the days my grief is unbearable.

    There is so much more I could write about my relief that his passing was gentle, my grief that my wonderful husband is gone, my thankfulness that my off-line friends and family and everyone here online at this site have been so supportive and giving of their time to pray and leave comments of support, but I'm rather exhausted from the past two days so I will have to leave that for another time.

    But before I log off, I would like to say thank you again for all of the support. I have never met any of you and may never do so face to face, but it has helped so much to have words of encouragement waiting every time I could get to the computer.

    :hugs:

    I'm so glad that it was peaceful and that you were able to be there with him. You will continue to be in my prayers. I am so sorry that you have lost such a wonderful husband, but I am happy that you had him, even for a little while. Many hugs, prayers, and tears are here for you. Let us know how you are doing and if there is anything that we can do. :hugs:

    I'm sorry to hear about your husband death--- it brings tears to my eyes even though I never met either of you. I pray God would surround you with strength and comfort--- that you know that your husband and son and THE Son is watching over you and loving you from above.

    God bless you Hun *hugs*

    I was hoping I would log on one day and you would tell me that he was better, yet I knew that wasn't likely to happen. I hoped with you every day. My God be with you at this time, know that he is in the arms of God, and you are not gong to be seperated forever.

    My prayers are with you.

    Many prayers for you & your family in the days ahead. I'm sure the next few will be very difficult as well. This is the first place I look in the morning to see how he/you are doing. I know he is now in a better place & painfree. For those left behind it's hard. Just know we are here when you need us!!!

    Many prayers & hugs being sent your way!!!

    Dear teacherintexas,

    Your posts are so touching, and you demonstrate amazing strength and courage. In the days to come, know that He is with you, and continue to ask Him for strength and guidance.

    When you need to talk...we are here...Sometimes, you just need to keep talking to someone. Keep sending us your threads...

    The funeral was today. The service was wonderful, and I know my husband would have approved. He had a packed church to come say farewell.

    He was such a hunter and fisherman and loved the outdoors so I bought him a new camouflage shirt and jeans to be buried in. Many of you are probably aghast at reading that but I had thought about getting him a nice dress shirt or a suit, but I found a nice almost dress camouflage shirt and I knew at once that would be the one. We had many pictures displayed at the funeral home and in many of them, my husband was wearing one of his many camo shirts while fishing or working outside. He was not a suit and tie person, but he certainly was an outdoorsman so the camo was a perfect fit.

    I'm better than I thought I would be at this point, but I think I'm still going on adrenaline and will have many bad days in the weeks and months ahead. Right now, my parents are staying with me so I'm not alone. The first night alone in our house will be difficult so they are postponing that for me for a little while.

    Thank you for your posts and the prayers. I'm glad I never took my husband for granted, and always got a kiss goodnight and an "I love you", even on the last night he was alive. Even though I got mad at him and he got mad at me at times like almost all married couples, we had a good marriage and though it lacked in length, it certainly didn't lack love.

    We're still praying for you, and we won't forget. When this time has passed and you do start to feel the loss acutely, remember the joy and the triumph of the Resurrection and that your husband is with your other loved ones in heaven praying for you too.

    teacherintexas, the camo is perfect. It's what your hubby was most comfortable in. You have been such a strong person throughout this ordeal and it has resonated here on this board. Your husband was lucky to have you in his life. You and your family continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I'll mirror what eduk8r said in that with your faith, you know you will see him again and he will be waiting for you in heaven.

    Master Pre-K sent me a pm saying she thought many of you might want an address to send cards or a charity/cause that we have supported. I don't want to post such personal information, but if you want that info, you may pm me.

    I used to be a two or three times a day "a to z-er", but recently I have only been logging on once a day so it may take a day for me to respond.
