    i lost my wife 4 weeks ago. she was my life!! i can only take comfort in three facts. 1) she always said she wanted to die before me. 2) she never wanted to live to real old. 3)whatever took her life, she wanted it to be quick. GOD GAVE HER ALL 3 OF HER WISHES.It was God’s greatest gift to her!

    Thank you for these quotes.

    A husband with a hole in my heart that will never heal, I don’t want it to.She was worth dying a little for every day i live.
