I'm sorry for your loss Forkz. I help stroke victims daily in the hospital and see the sadness it brings to the families when their loved ones have no chance of recovery. Prayers are with you and the family.
we were not married she was widowed when we met we were very close she had a grandson born after we met he took to me soon after while hes not my real grandson i love him like he is i try to tell him everyday i love him if not in person by text he is 12
My condolences Forkz. They say blood is thicker than water, not really true, in my experience anyways. My wife and I have been together for almost 45 years, it was her 2nd marriage. She had a daughter from her first, which I basically helped raise. She gave us some grief, but thats neither here nor there. She in turn had 2 daughters, my first grandkids. Although not my blood grandkids, they are just the same. I guess they are probably my favorite grandkids, although we are not supposed to pick favorites. Probably is because we helped raise them more than my own daughters kids.
Guess my point is, family is family, no matter who they are.
Dang man. Prayers from PA. I have been where you are at 30 years ago with a fiance`. I can only pray that they are both together in the lords hands laughing about the good times we with them. It's gonna be a tough but you can make it. Trust in God, trust that what has happened is in his plan for you. I know that is no help right now but....... I know we all wonder why! But God's plan is better than ours even though it hurts. Just a word of how I dealt with my "misfortunes" in my life. I asked myself what am I getting out of this other than pain and loss. How is this making me stronger, how is this bringing me closer to God, how does this help me help others through this? If you need to chat message me, I will be glad to chat with you. If you have faceboook you can message me at Tony Hertzler Lancaster PA.
Here's a few songs for you. I have seen Casting crowns live and they are really what they sing. They are a band of faith and hope. Third day is another good band to listen to for encouragement. A band I found at Creation Festival NE is Ashes Remain and their songs helped pull me through a separation/divorce 3 1/2 years ago, I send a song of theirs (right here) to my "now" wife to help her when she was at her bottom of life and it helped her as well as my friendship at that time. They are a harder sounding band but man their words hit me right in the heart.
Music has always been my healing grace in times of struggle, when there is nobody but you around it is a connection to God, a way to gain strength, faith, and a feeling of love from God in your lowest times. I hope this helps some. I know, I have been there where you are at and right now nothing helps the loss. Just know you have brothers and sisters in Christ here to help you get through this.
Sorry, I didn't mean to write a short story I just want you to know I know what you are going through and I am here if you need me, and to give you encouragement.

Specifically for my mom and her extended family.
Awhile ago, a relative of my mom's was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer, and she has been undergoing treatment. She responded well to the treatment, and was well on the road to recovery. Our family saw her over the Summer, and she was fine...
I was at dinner for less than 5 minutes last night, when my wife asked if I'd heard about Neil's passing. I had not, and was overcome by shock.
I only saw Rush once (November 1987), and didn't realize I was even a fan. I was working (EMT detail) at the venue, and no one got hurt, so I was able...
