I wrote my Father Confessor, speaking openly about my grief, which is now being realized in my separation from my life’s partner, and the incredible loneliness it breeds.
Ht stunned me with his glorious answer, and made clear that blessed peace which passes all understanding.

You would have loved being at your memorial today. The whole family was there, I used the Epistle verses about the Resurrection, and I read the Lord’s take on the “Ideal Wife” from Proverbs 31. It fit you like a glove. Then all of us, including Arnel and Ari and young Nick, went to Outback. We were there over 3 hours, and no one was in a rush when we did decide to finally break it up.
I spoke of your faith, the promises of Jesus, what you meant to me, and heard their words – “like a sister to me” . . . Lorraine was part of the family from day one . . . she was so down to earth and speaking well of everyone always.”
You made quite a mark on them in our time together, My Love. I was a most fortunate man , in every way, to be able to have loved you. You truly made me a whole man.
My heavenly-departed wife and love of my life.
This was our favorite picture together. All that she was to me, to her daughters Ang and Liza and the grandchildren, will be finished and posted at some future point in time. I have already written much. But I am not ready to post it yet.
The Lord called her home on December 28th, 2016. Her faith in Christ was like a rock, and I shall see her one day. But for now, my love for her must mourn with me. She was a heaven-sent treasure whom I miss dearly. The wound to my soul in losing her keeps me from all but these humble words at present.
Mine – I love you with all my heart, and miss you terribly.
