My Dear HubPages staff and Wonderful followers, Today is Feb. 12, 2016 at this writing. Yesterday between the hours of 3 and 7 a.m., my one and only daughter passed from this walk of life. She was 39 and had spent most of last summer with her husband and oldest daughter in the University of Alabama at Birmingham hospital for bacteria in her lungs. Thank God, she was revived and came home in mid-August. After some rehab, she was on her way of doing things like she had once enjoyed, but then she became sick again and suffered from not getting enough breath in her lungs. Needless to say that I am in shock. Our Heavenly Father had just healed me of the effects of Congestive Heart Failure and now this which far supersedes my own affliction. She leaves a husband and our three grandchildren. I am asking for your prayers and patience for it may be a while longer before I get to return to HubPages to be with all of you whom I love dearly. Thank you. Sincerely, Kenneth Avery
My most special friend on HP how so sorry I feel of your precious lost , I am at lost for words right now , but I will pray for you and family , I will contact you personally thank you for sharing your heart here at a time most grievous to you and family. Know that you are always special to my heart here I am sure others feel as I do on HP.
Kenneth, I am so sorry to hear about this tragic loss. It is a devastating news. My heartfelt condolences to you and all others bereaved family members. I pray to God for keeping your daughter's soul in eternal peace. Regards, Suhail
Kenneth so sorry to hear about your wife I know her passing leaves a heartache no one can heal, But I know her love leaves a memory no one can steal.If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. My thoughts are with you.
Handicapped Chef, No, sir. It was our daughter who passed. But still, there is a space in my heart that only God can fill. She went in her sleep. No suffering or hooking to a life support. Thanks for thinking of us.
Randy Godwin sends his condolences: "My heart goes out to Kenneth Avery. It's times like this I abhor HP's mods for preventing me from offering my condolences. "
I send mine as well. I've experienced two deaths, my Mom and my Dad. It is as bad as bad gets. But there is a "trivial" saying. It is "trivial" because it is often repeated. But it is often repeated because it is true. Time Does Heal.
You will wake up every morning and your pain will be your first thought.
And then. One day. Not that far. It will be your second.
Paradigsearch and Randy Godwin, Thanks to both of you for your sweet, sweet note. It helped a lot. Wish I felt like writing more, but I do not. One day, I hope to be back on HP. Remember us in prayers.
Extremely sad to hear about your dearest daughter. There are no words to comfort for such a great loss. This must be extremely difficult time for you and your family. My heartfelt condolences to you and all others bereaved family members. I pray to God to give you enough strength to face this difficult phase of life.
My deepest condolences to you and yours especially over the next days, weeks and months. So glad you were all given a little extra time together before she passed on. My thoughts are with all of you. Sally
O Kenneth, I am so sorry. I have been sitting here moaning in pain and felling sorry for myself, but my physical pain is nothing compared to the pain you are feeling at seeing a daughter pass. Lord the Avery family is in misery right now, Help----. Thank you for making Kenneth's heart healthy enough to help his grand children through this. Thank you that he has reached out to our community so we can keep him and his family in prayer. Grant this dear friend and his family rest. Amen
Kenneth your family will be in our prayers (also concerning your health). Be assured Jesus understands your sorrow. "A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief." Isaiah 53:3 "Low I am with you always." (Matthew 28:20)
Heavenly Father, Surround Kenneth and his family with Your love by granting them grace, strength and courage as they walk this difficult road. (Joshua 1:9) Lord, I ask that you send them help in providing whatever they need, and cause them to be able to rest so they can think clearly. Give them wisdom as they make decisions and blessings beyond measure.
We thank You for Your loving promises and fully expect to receive the favor of Your peace that passes all understanding.
favored, Thank you and God bless you, dear friend, for your thoughts, care, words, and warm prayers for us. And for reminding me of a few of God's ironclad promises. May He soak you from head to toe, inside out with His anointing and special touch on your life for you could be a wonderful ministry leader.
Oh, Kenneth. My heart breaks for you. I'm so sorry to hear this shocking news. I can only offer prayer that you and your family will be comforted, in time, by God's grace. I can relate on some level as I am recovering from grief myself, recently losing my sister who leaves behind a husband and four children. However, I know nothing compares to a parent losing a child, no matter how old the child. What will help the most is the love, support, and prayers of friends and family. One day at a time, in peace.
janshares, Thank you so much for this deep, moving note that I needed to read. You are truly a terrific friend and follower. I wish I could pay you all back, but until I can, I offer you this "Thank You Much."
I am sorry for your grief, there is no way I can fully understand how you feel, I am sure. But, I can pray for you and God can give you rest to carry on through this horrible loss. God Bless All of You.
As just one of the countless Hubbers, I urge you to come back soon and let us share in the healing process. I send our love to you and yours. This remains the realm of the living in which her husband and children need a fully available grandfather and as much normalcy as can be regained, and as soon as possible while still honoring her heritage. She loved you all too much for it to become anything less, I am sure.
Persycacious Thank you for the invitation. I will consider this. I promise. Just give me a little time. I want to always keep her in my heart. I might even write a tribute hub about her. God bless you my friend.
I think of you as a special person Kenneth, and I too have lost one of my children. I am sorrow to hear what you have gone through. She is in your heart always Kenneth, and never forget the times and love you guys had for each other. Be strong, and remember that your supporters on hub pages follow you for a reason, because we feel you are a special person. You will know that your daughter one day will see you again. That is my faith, and I hope you have that too. Any time you need my friendship then you know I respect you as a writer. ladybluewriter
ladybluewriter, Nice to meet you. You too, are a special person by sending a note like this to me. I needed it very much. I will do as you ask and you just continue to pray for us. God bless you richly.
My friend I too have a daughter who has serious medical problems, is in her thirties and keeps my wife and I awake at night in worry. We hope that you and yours receive the Lord God's blessings and we will be praying for your family loss. We will miss you and your enlightening work and hope you return soon. whonu (David Rodgers and family)
Kenneth, what a tragedy for your family. Sending my love across the oceans.
You wrote: "She was 39 and had spent most of last summer with her husband and oldest daughter in the University of Alabama at Birmingham hospital for bacteria in her lungs."
Does this mean her husband and daughter were also patients in the hospital? Or were they there to support your daughter during her stay? I do hope your family is not worrying about other health issues at this time.
Thinking of you, Kenneth. Wishing you strength to deal with the sadness.
LongTimeMother, She was 39 at the time of her passing. She was a patient in UAB, Birmingham, Ala., during most of last summer. Her husband, oldest daughter, and my wife stayed out there and supported her. Thank you for your very warm note. I appreciate you. And God bless you.
Hi, Tricia, Thank you for your sympathies. God bless you richly for ministering to us. Yes, there are many bacteria in our atmosphere and anyone who is coughing a lot or cannot breathe in a normal fashion, I BEG YOU to see a doctor ASAP. God bless you, Tricia.
