He is Sitting at the Feet of Jesus Now

He left me to be with Jesus, July 25, 2021 I sure am missing him very much. We would have been married 48 years this month, August 27, 2021. He was at Misti Arbor Assisted Living for 21 days, 6 of those days he was in Hospice. He was in a lot of pain with many health issues. He died of Ministrokes. I am having a Celebration of Life, August 28, 2021, it will be the day after our anniversary.
This is the invite, I put this on Facebook and will be sending these to people that don't have computers or are not on Facebook.
This picture was taken back in Ladysmith, probably between 1977-1985. He loved music. He also played the piano, sax and keyboard.
This is one of my favorite pictures of JP. That old model T dump truck, never got to restore it, but it did run. We eventually donated it to "Rawhide" when we decided to move into town and leave our county home on 20 acres. I miss that time of our life and I miss this JP.
This picture is in the scrapbook I put together when JP raced at Waukegan Speedway. Back in 71-73. This was his favorite picture. If the driver won the hot lap he got to drive his car around the track with the American flag.

It is so hard for me to believe he is gone. I might be watching TV or on the computer, and suddenly I feel like I need to get up and go make him supper and he will be home pretty soon from work....not sure what that is all about. But then I remember, oh that's right he is not coming home.

Today I was cleaning up his room.....such a mess, he saved everything, tracts, bible studies, calendars, bibles, his study notes from books, bible and sermons. He was a Bible scholar I guess, he really knew God's Word.

I probably won't be blogging for awhile, have much to do. So many things need to be done when a spouse dies. Not even sure I got everything done. But he has only been gone 13 days, so I have time.

See you later, take care and enjoy your husband or is very short.

Louise, I am so sorry that your sweetheart has passed. You had lots of years but not near enough. I myself had a huge melt down in my Teddy's shop today while sorting. You may think you are fine one minute and then something will make you think and then you will cry or laugh or both. Sending hugs to you my friend. Blessings, love, Susie

Thank you Susie. I am not liking being a widow. But JP is not in pain anymore. Yes, I have my moments. Still hard to believe yet. And so many things to do. The list is long. I was going to send you the invite. I know you can't make it...but I wanted to let you know my husband passed but I guess Blogspot helped. Strange, we are both in the same boat. Take care, I always wondered how you were doing.

Oh Louise, I am so sorry to hear of JP's passing. This is so hard and it takes so long to adjust to it. I kept thinking "I'll tell Bill about that when he gets home" before I remembered he was gone. Keeping busy helps and there are things that must be done. He is safe now and not in pain. My thoughts are with you during this sad time.

Dear Louise! I am so sorry. My most sincere condolences. I understand that JP is with the Lord now, but this does not comfort you much. Blessings, love, Elena

Biz said...

I am so sorry Louise. I of course know exactly what you are going through and these first few months are the hardest. I only had my husband 14 years so what a gift that you had him for 47!

Sending hugs and love, Biz

Thank you Brenda. Yes, I have been trying to keep busy, but there are moments I cry for no reason and get mad cause he left me. Still hard to for me to believe he is gone.

Thank you for stopping by Bonnie, just trying to take one at a time, which has been hard, so many things to take care of since his death.

Thank you Elena...yes he is with Jesus and in no more pain. Still hard for me to believe...we have been in this house for 30 years so there are many memories here.

Biz, thank you for the kind words...I know you know what I am going through...never in a million years did I think I would be going through this, hurts a lot. I am glad he is no longer in pain which was always hard to watch. Thanks for stopping by.
