Some of you may know or recall me talking about my girl friend of 14 years Lori..............who developed ALS after about 9 years into our relationship.

In the recent months it has progressed quickly and today 7-31-20 she passed away in the nursing home she was at...........I saw her the week before and two days ago by special permission of the home.

We met in 2006 when I was 52 and she was 48.......and instantly knew we should be together........it took many years for us to work out our financial situations to the point where we could get married and just about that time is when the ALS appeared as a slight limp in her walk......at that point I dedicated the rest of her remaining days to helping as much as a could until she had to go to a nursing home.........she was never bitter........always wonderful, caring and loving to me and everyone she met until the end.

She once told me that if she could live one year over again it would be the first year we met, I said even over the years of having children?..............she said yes I meant that much to her...........

The last time I saw her she would still light up at my voice and was still aware of our life and love.....My final words to her were....."When I think about you it makes me glad I was born"...........she smiled and mumbled "wonderful" and then closed her eyes and we said our final goodbye that way........

......as sweet and decent of a person as she was stunningly beautiful.......... she will be cremated and her children and I will receive some of those ashes.........I will also get a lock of her hair she wanted me to have...........and that will go with me to my grave someday with some other artifacts I have from her.

So now the day I dreaded and feared has come and she's gone............and I'm heart broken beyond belief right now and will miss her immensely for the rest of my life.

Thank you for your time everyone.........and may the rest of your days be many and joyous with the time you have left on Earth.

Do not argue with me. You will not win.
Oh! PghPanther, I am so sorry! I can’t imagine what I could say that would help you; so I’ll pray for you and for the love of your life. She is home now! Walking without a limp and without pain, smiling and basking in the love of the Lord. God Bless you.

I'm so very sorry that this moment finds you in such pain- and so very glad that you shared Lori with us, and that you two found one another, and there by something that was so amazing it has the power to wound this deeply. Sometimes it is only in these moments after that the enormity of our blessing is understood. Comfort for you both, and the others who're hurting tonight too.

Please Lord, grant our friend Comfort in his grief, be his Refuge from the pain and broken heart. Put people in his life that will bridge the gap while he heals and finds joy once again, knowing that of all else his beautiful soulmate would not want her passing to take that from him. Let his memories of her be sweet and their time apart feel like only a blink of a moment in Your eyes. Let our friend feel all of the caring and concern we have for him, even though from afar. And let us be there when he has need of us.

Amen.

Praying for God’s peace for you and all who loved her.

You were both blessed in having each other in your lives. The love shared, the memories, can never be taken away, nor the happines you experienced. She is now beyond pain, and waiting for you in a better place than this world, as it now is. She would not want you to grieve or pine. Be patient, and rejoice in a life well lived, as she would want you to...

I pray that the as she is at peace, you will be at peace, as well.

You and her children shared her light, love, and laughter, enriching and strengthening your lives. Remember, and give thanks for being so blessed...

May time pass without pain or regret, and may you see her in all of the Universe' good. In so doing, you honor her, while easing your path, and healing...

Blessed Be
