    I have many,many friends on hub pages here and I am in no shape to do a hub or message all personally.

    Last night, my wife of 30 years died. My heart is broke and I am lost. I love you Jonda.
    Jonda was only 49 years old and I believe her to be a saint.
    I know that she is running and playing with Jonathan!

        I don't know you, but your words touched me. I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's us, the ones who are left behind that are hurting, but our loved ones are doing much better. I'm sure you are right on what she is doing right now.

        God Bless you and give you strength during this time.

        Oh Froggy my heart is breaking for you. I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you. Think of it this way, God realized that Jonathan needed Granma and that is why she had to leave you.
        Be strong my friend,

        Time heals a lot of wounds, be strong.
        Give yourself some time to grieve then keep busy, it helps a lot. Life is not fair and 49 is not the number to leave. But it's not our choice. My brother died at 27.

      Speaking from experience, the hurt never goes away but it does get better and if you can make something positive come of this terrible loss it certainly helps - we started a scholarship in our son's name and good things have come of it.

         I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Jonda and eventually you will be able to go on.Ask yourself what would Jonda want me to do ?   
          This poem was giving to me by my Grandma when I was dealing with the sudden death of my Grandfather.

                           I Am Not There
                    Do not stand at my grave and weep
                    I am not there -I do not not sleep
                    I am a thousand winds that blow
                    I am the diamond glints on snow
                    I m the sunlight on ripened grain
                    I am the gentle Autumns rain

                    When you awaken in the morning's rush
                    I am the swift uplifting rush
                    Of quite birds in circled flight
                    I am the soft stars that shone at night
                    Do not stand by my grave and cry
                    I am not there ,I did not die   


         I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks to come as you learn you will as you learn to live a very different life

      I'm saddened to hear the news Froggy.  Thank you for letting us know.  I'm sure she'll be missed.  As someone said earlier, the hurt never goes away, but time does enable you to cope with the loss.  Be easy on yourself and take care of yourself.  Never be afraid to reach out for help from your friends and family.

      I am so sorry....I will not say that time heals all wounds because you loved her- truley and deeply. And the wound will remain. But the pain will lessen, know that.
      For now- grieve. Let yourself feel her loss as you need to do that for yourself.I pray for your strength now, I am so sorry for your loss. Know we are here for you-
