    Default Thankful for 37 years together-Now he's gone...

    As some of you may remember I've often posted about my husband Steve and his breathing and heart problems.

    To make sleeping easier he slept in his recliner in the den. When I awoke this morning he was not breathing and his body was cold. I knew he was gone.....

    The paramedics and Sheriff's department (they do a cursory investigation to make sure there is no foul play involved) were very gentle and understanding. I'm holding off on notifying his only remaining sister until late tonight, after her family celebration is over.

    Thankful for the 37 years we had together. There will be no formal service. Prayers for Steve welcome if you desire.

    Oh my God Judy, I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I am at a loss for words but know that I am thinking of you and send you prayers and hugs as you go through this journey. May your memories with Steve help you through this most difficult time.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    My deepest sympathies to you, Judy. May you find comfort in reflecting back on your 37 years together, and in knowing that your dear Steve passed peacefully and at home. Kudos to you for thinking of the kindest way to break the news to his sister.

    You have many friends here on this forum who will lift you up in prayer and in spirit, and who stand prepared to listen when you need a sympathetic ear. Peace be with you.

    Oh Judy, I'm so sorry for your loss. It really hit a chord with me. My dad passed in a similar manner. I hope you'll find peace and comfort in the coming days with happy memories of your 37 years together.

    I am so sorry for your loss, My thoughts will be with you. My Mom also passed in a similar way. She went to nap and never woke up.
