A service to celebrate the life of my dear, sweet husband will be held this Sunday, January 17th, at Traders Point Christian Church. Service will begin at 5pm, but doors will open at 4pm. For those unable to attend but would still like to view his memorial, the service will be live streamed at TPCC.org. Flowers may be sent to Traders Point Christian Church or in lieu of such, donations can be made in Andrew’s honor to Be The Match, (donations can be made online here or can be made at the service). We will also have two tables set up at Traders Point to sign up to join the registry in Andrew’s honor. This is a cause so near and dear to our hearts and one swab of the cheek can save someone’s life. We have no idea how many to expect as we are sure that many will want to come and join in the celebration of this wonderful man, but there will be another sanctuary in the church open with a large screen streaming the video for any overflow of the main worship area, as well.
I will write further later, once my mind can stop racing and the pain isn’t as fresh, but I do appreciate all of the kind words and outpour of love and support. Admittedly, I can’t read or watch it all; both because of the incredible amount of things out there but also because it hurts too badly. Many ask “how are you doing?” and the honest answer to that is that I am awful. I’ve lost the love of my life. Every day gets harder because it’s a day more since the last time I’ve seen him or felt his arms around me. Truly, just the worst days of my life. But I am holding onto hope in our Lord and Savior for I know that He is good, no matter what. I don’t believe that God orchestrated this devastation in my life, but I know that He will use it for the Kingdom. I miss my love every single day and I cannot wait for the day that he greets me at the gates of Heaven, ready to give me one of his giant, crushing hugs.
“I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining. I believe in love, even when I’m alone. I believe in God, even when He is silent.” (CS Lewis)
