David

My dear David slipped quietly from this world with peace and dignity yesterday, July 3, 2010. As they say in the COPD world "He is breathing easy now..."

I awoke early this morning to feel waves of love and joy emanating from David's spirit. It was such a comfort, as I thought I'd be waking up in pain.

Yes, I feel sad. Yes, there are tears, but right now I know he is flying; he is lighter, having left his painful and worn out body behind.

Dearest Wendy, My deepest sympathy on David's passing. I wish I had just the right words to comfort you, but may you take some comfort in the fact that he has left the "surly bonds of earth" and all its pain behind him.

Sending you love and peace and lots of big hugs,

Rose

I am so so sorry that you have had to lose your dear David. I feel I am welling up as I write this.
However, the fact that he went peacefully must have been a comfort to you.
It is also a comfort to believe that he is breathing beautifully now...... but you will miss him and I send you my love and sympathy and pray for your peace to continue....
Love & hugs

Dear Wendy,
Love and light....
Thank you for sharing this time with us.
It is an honor to be your friend. You have taught me so very much about love and letting go. You have taught how to be in the moment. How to be "loving kindness".
You are an inspiration.
Many hugs. Much compassion.
Sherry

I've been checking all the time but my family were here and I missed this.

I'm so, so sorry Wendy. Words must be little comfort at this time but there's little else that can be offered. I guess the fact that he was peaceful and you were there (I hope) makes you feel a little better. It was so obvious how much you loved him and although he is in a better place, your life has changed forever. I hope you can cope.

Wendy thank you for sharing your journey. David has found his peace. You are so brave and strong. You'ill grieve and be sad but I guess with David's spirit nearby that will carry you forward. God Bless you.

Dear Wendy, May those waves of love and joy surround you always. You and David have fought a gallant battle-one that I don't think you lost. You both gained so many things from it. A deeper love-a true kindredness of spirits-knowing your selves and each other at a level few attain.

And you dearest Wendy have gained a strength and confidence that will help sustain you through the difficult times ahead. I am in awe of your abilities in sharing your experiences and feelings.

I wish peace for you and your family. And take comfort in knowing David's love is everlasting.

Dear Wendy,

Words are so feeble at times, and this is one of those occasions. So many emotions washed over me as I read your post, but no more than what you are feeling and experiencing yourself. I am so glad you have family around you at this time--especially those precious grandchildren to love you and give you hugs. My only wish is I could be there to hold your hand and put my arm around your shoulder.

We have been traveling and I have been unable to check my email in a couple of weeks. You have been on my mind and in my thoughts the entire time. I hope you can feel the love and support, not just from me, but from all your friends in cyber-space.

Hugs filled with love,
Jenny

I am sorry that I was not on when David passed on. He is in a place of peace and rest.
I have great empathy with you. The joy of having had a wonderful person in your life. I join the others in offering you hugs and caring thoughts as you move from one phase of your life to another. May you too find joyous tomorrows.

Oh Wendy, he breathes. He soars. I am so sorry for your aloneness. Such a faithful spouse you have been. Sending you all of my love on the wings of a desert sparrow. Love, Deb

Oh Wendy....I wasn't active these past two weeks and I just came over...I'm so sorry to learn about David. may God give you the strength to bear this loss.Sending hugs and prayers your way.

My brother-in-law passed away on July 4 which is why I didn't have the heart to post nor check blogposts. You're in my thoughts and in my prayers.

Mary said...

Dear Wendy,

I've been away too long. I'm so, so, sorry. David is lighter now! I remember feeling glad that my Mom didn't need to struggle through every day with the same disease.

As for you, may you rest. You need it. Enjoy happy memories with him. That's what he would want for you.

Hugs,
Mary

Oh, Wendy. I'm SO sorry. I will be praying for you. The grief will come and go, ebb and flow. It is like the ocean.

Ah, may God comfort your heart in knowing David is safely tucked next to His heart.
