For those who have been following along on my "first wife's" condition, she passed away peacefully at home this morning.

Here's a couple more photos from " The Good Times".

Heartfelt condolences, swt.  I'm glad you have those good memories to cherish, and that her loved ones were able to bring her home at the last.  Cancer just sucks.

It's 5:00 am, sitting down to a cup of coffee, browsing the internet, read your post and have set here for the past 10 minutes, thinking about how you must feel, thinking about your children and how they must feel.

In my 53 years of living I have lost people I love, but never a wife.......I have lost a parent, but he lived a full life.  As a police officer for over 30 years I have on many occasions been the messenger with horrific news.  With that, I think I understand what you must be feeling, but still can't say I know how you feel.

I believe our God hears all prayers, even from those who pray for a family they've never met, and he hears mine for yours.

Outside of religion I also believe we live eternally.  Physically in our children, and emotionally in the minds and hearts of the people we touch throughout our lives.

My prayers are not just for comfort, but for strength as well.  They are beautiful pictures, exemplifying a loving wife and mother, whose life was short, but full, giving you and your children many fond memories to hang onto.

As a family grieve your loss, know that she watches over you, and get busy living lives in which she finds both pride and entertainment.
