For those who knew about my wife's valiant struggle with lung cancer (since Thanksgiving 2011), I want to thank you for all your prayers. I'm claiming she won the battle, since from 9:05 Sunday morning, 3/9/14, & on, she's chilling with Jesus--done with suffering & completely healed.

Overnight Sun/Mon, my deep peace began to return with the renewal of God's promise that all would be OK. We've known since shortly after her diagnosis that all w/b ok, even if we never knew what ok looked like. Overnight Mon/Tues, my deep joy began to return, & I was able to be joyful at her healing & presence in glory with Jesus.

Last night, Overnight last night, my ability to find pleasure in simple routine was restored.

Weeping continues on & off, but healing has begun & He who's begun this good work in us will be faithful to complete it, too.

I'd invite you to continue praying with me for our granddaughter, whom we're raising. She's 16yo, & at 63yo I'm now a single parent. Smile She's worth every bit of the effort (honors student, etc.), & resumed school (her strong desire) the next day.

Many thanks for all your prayers.

Grace & Peace,
Bill

Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us. I'm sorry for your loss while at the same time rejoicing with you that she is now pain-free in the presence of Christ. I have prayed in the past after reading your posts and will try to remember to pray in the days ahead. May the Lord give you the grace you need in the days ahead as you mourn the loss of your wife and adjust to being a single parent while raising your granddaughter.

Bill,

I grieve with you in the loss of the one you loved the most besides the Lord. I am sure that after the struggle she's been through that knowing she's been released and is with the Lord is a source of comfort to you. But the loss remains. No one can take her place. May God's supernatural peace continue to guard your mind and heart and protect your spirit in the months ahead. May all of life some day soon shine through for you, again.

Your granddaughter is a lucky young lady to have you as a grandfather. I will pray for your strength and wisdom as you continue to love her and try to raise her 'right'.

Thanks for sharing so personally with us. You have my prayers.

Bonnie's FB posts were most inspirational, and I was able to share some of her comments with my Bride and others. I thank God for the privilege of having followed her story these last two years. We will continue to pray for you and Nikki.

Thanks, Mark. I've been trying hard to keep things normal for her. She's such a great gal. She's worth all the effort.

I am so sorry for your temporary yet painful loss Bill S.

I have seen Jesus in this post and look forward to meeting you both/all in heaven one day (where all of us Logos posters can catch up on each others lives and service in Christ if that sort of thing is permitted/encouraged in Heaven) unless of course I meet sooner some day - except I live in RI.

I am a new grandfather and glad grandson Isaac's grandparents are both born-again Christians as well as servants in the Church.

God bless your family/church and you as you serve and parent/grandparent/love.

Glory to God....Jesus Lead On!

Bill,

Thanks for the update.

Every time that I would see your avatar as you faithfully updated forum users about free Vyrso titles, I wondered how your wife was doing and prayed for you.

I will continue to pray for you and your granddaughter. I know that both of you feel the loss in your life.

Edwin
