Tragedy Strikes Our Family...

  Dear Friends, Yesterday my Dad went to be with the Lord. He had not been sick but he had been suffering since the loss of Mom just 5 short months ago. I truly believe he died of a broken heart. He had not recovered at all from the loss of Mom. She was his everything and he didn't really realize it until she was gone.
  I know that they are truly happy together in Gods' arms but our hearts are devastated....shock..beyond belief. I do not have the words for this but rest assured I know that they are not suffering apart any longer.
  My world was forever changed in August and now it changed again...forever. I am in such anguish. My Dad was in Florida and I just don't know if he could have returned to Ohio to all of her things again...Please pray for us at our lowest hour....we need all God has to offer to survive without them.

I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. Yes, I also do believe people can die from a broken heart. Know they are together again and happy. Sometimes the Lord asks us to bear the unthinkable but you WILL get through it. Will pray for strength for you.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my parents 10 weeks apart two years ago, so I know how you feel. I pray God gives you the strength to move forward, and please be comforted knowing that they are together again in the kingdom of God.

I am so sorry. You haven't had time to fully grieve for your mom and now more sorrow. How heartbreaking for your family, but joyous for them to be together.

I am so sorry for your loss. My grandparents were that way, but when my grandfather died, my grandmother went senile over losing my grandfather. They are together now and at peace, as I am sure your parents are. I will keep you and the family in my prayers. They are in heaven, getting all things ready for their family. Once again, I am so very sorry.

God Bless~
Debbie

Sweetie, I truly am sorry for your loss and agree that someone can die from a broken heart. I lost my precious daddy just 9 months after my mom. I find great comfort knowing we will see each other again. My parents were married for over 60 years and were just as much in love when mom died as when they were married. My prayers are with you. Sarah
