Theresa, I'm sorry to learn of the loss of your dearly beloved Harvey this morning.

May the pain, hurt, sadness and sorrow you feel be short lived and the wonderful memories

of Harvey comfort you in this difficult time.

I am not here to ask advices or anything..

Just want to share that my husband passed away this morning... peacefully... he had brain cancer and we have been fighting for more than a year now... there was a point in our fight that we thought we are winning... but we lost... i am just thankful that he passed away peacefully... in his sleep, and i got the chance to tell him everyday that i love him... and that he is my love, my life, my world, my home and my everything...

Whenever I read people here posting marriage not working out, just using me for greencard, giving up... and a lot of things... i am so sad...

I found the perfect husband... the perfect person... and yet he was taken away from me in such a short time...

I promise I will honor his name... i will honor our love... and I do not think I could love other person as much as I loved him... and still loving him... my love for him will not die until my last breath...

Im so sorry for your loss kababayan. I pray for God's healing and comfort to you and the rest of the family.

I feel so bad reading your post, yet so happy that at least, once upon time, you have found each other. Death is inevitable yet the memories will always remain. I pray for the soul of your husband, may he rest in the Kingdom of God. Remember, he never left, he just went ahead. My sincerest sympathy to you and the family and may God be with you always!!!

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
