Life With Out Richard : A message to all my AD friends
>> View all 407
My husband, Richard has been gone three months now. My life has drastically changed! Some how I have survived and am slowly moving forward.
Beyond forever, will you be waiting for me?
Beyond forever, someday that's where I will be.
My heart sings a thousand songs of yesterday, as I remember our love once shared while traveling along life's way.
Special moments so divine, filled with sunny days and star lit nights, held our hearts in loves sweet embrace.
We shared countless moments as days, weeks and years passed by. Our love and understanding of each other grew stronger along with passions flame.
When we reached our golden years, our lives changed as health problems plagued us. We both continued onward doing the best we could.
One day it all became to hard for you to continue to endure. God took you away from all who loved and cared so much about you.
Your passing broke our hearts as we cried and mourned for our great loss.
Our family is not complete and it will never be that way again.
You are now in paradise and suffer no more with medical problems for which there was no cure.
Sometimes I feel that you are with me and I can feel your heart touching mine!
True love can and does transcend the realm of heaven and earth.
Some day soon, I'll cross over and be with you once again,

|Beautiful writing, MaryGrace...your and Richard's love still is a great example to other couples to cherish and value each other, and to express that love.
No doubt, Richard is looking forward to you being with him again, but he can be patient now, seeing from eternity's view. God will show us so many things when we meet Him and our loved ones in heaven.
Yet, He has chosen for you to stay here, carrying new burdens with His help, and reaching more individuals with your writing. Suffering adds new importance to what we say. And remember, "My strength is made perfect in weakness."
I love how you wrote about Richard's heart touching yours, and this line: "True love can and does transcend the realm of heaven and earth."
with Love and prayers,

|MaryGrace, Your loss is enormous and your strength shines through. I will keep you in my prayers. Deeply meaningful write which I believe anyone can relate to, but only some can fully understand. Be well, Kathy|

|so beautiful marygrace and i know he surrounded you watching each loving word as it went from your wounded heart to paper.
i pray that you feel our loving Father's arms around you as he slowly heals this enourmous wound to the very soul of you...hold tight to Him with trust and keep writing. transferring pain to paper makes the healing a little easier...pat

Wonderful poem that is a tribute to Richard and will touch the hearts everyone in your family.
On the last day of her life my wife told me she wanted to go home. She was in much pain. I told her that I would not fight her if she wanted to go home. Then I told her that I loved her very much and she said, "Now I know that you really do."
It's the miracle of faith. If you love someone enough to want them with you forever you have to love them even more when it's time to say goodbye knowing that we will all go home to be with The Lord eventually. When will we go home? That's the mystery of faith.
MaryGrace you have strong faith that can fill mountains. Your poem will certainly touch the lives of many. God Bless you!
Peace, love and blessings,
