In the Blink of an Eye…

A very dear friend of mine passed away on Monday afternoon after suffering a massive stroke Friday evening.  His unexpected death has left me at a loss for words, and has hit closer to home than I would have ever thought possible.

He and his wife are such loving and caring people, and throughout all of the ups and downs of their marriage, they remained best friends and lovers.  To see them embrace one another to express their love was not an uncommon sight.  Their love stood the test of time, it grew with each year that passed, and it will continue on even after death.

My heart aches for this precious woman (my sweet friend as well as my boss), and I can empathize with how she must be feeling during this horrific, life-altering time.  I dread the moment when I will have to face the loss of my own husband; it will be devastating, and I am certain that I will become (and remain) an absolute basket case!

When you are lucky enough to find that one special soul during your travels in life, it completely alters your reality.  You somehow fuse together and become one single entity.  You come to rely upon one another in all things.  How could you possibly survive without your other half?!  Overnight, you simply become a shell of that person that you once were.

My heart goes with this family, as well as my prayers.  May they EACH find the comfort and support that is needed during this difficult grieving process.

His presence will be missed by many!

Rest In Peace Mr. Jerry…

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Several of my friends have lost loved ones in recent weeks, and I understand your sense of shock. It knocks you off balance, doesn’t it? But I’m glad both you and your friend have, or had, that kind of strong, loving marriage, where you can’t imagine life without the other. That is a rare gift. Blessings and prayers.
