Please pray for our family

My beloved husband passed away unexpectedly early this morning. Please keep our family in your prayers. Our daughters and their families are with me. I feel like I know you so well that I needed to share this with you.
Love,
Sweetie

Sweetie, words fail me, my heart is so full of sorrow for you. I know others have offered but if there is anything at all I can do for you please let me know. My personal email is onlycs11@comcast.net and I'm here to listen if you need an ear, any day, any time. I do believe with all my heart though that he is with Sherry at this time. The questions your family has about Sherry, he now knows the answers to. At this time I pray that your heart may be comforted in this trial. Let your family be your strength and help you through. It won't be easy but they can lift you and strengthen you. May God be with all of you at this time of grief. Cindy

Hey there -

You don't know me, I found your blog through Donna's. I didn't know her either as of a couple months ago but she left a sweet message on my blog since both our parents have Alzheimer's and my blog is all about my dads journey with Alzheimer's.

I just wanted to say that I am sorry to hear about your loss. Can't even imagine what that is like. Not to mention you lost your daughter too? Holy Cow!! So, sorry!!

Anyway, I really love your blog and you have such a beautiful family.

Take Care!
