View Full Version : For my wife...please
January 31st, 2013, 05:29 PM
...I ask for my family here, to draw my beloved wife Tracy to your hearts...she has lost her Grandpa, and I a good friend....Jack had been suffering the effects of a stroke for quite sometime, and with the other co-existing conditions-his big heart just finally gave up and he entered the clearing Wednesday evening...Tracy was always her G-pa's little girl, and I know how much love shone in both their eyes when they were together...I grieve for her, and just wish I could do more to assuage the pain I know she's feeling...but even as a "healer"-I can't do it, and THAT hurts me...she payed me a magnificent compliment on her Grandpa's passing, saying that I am very much like him...all gruff, rough and testy on the outside, but tenderhearted as they come inside...as I say...Jack was my friend, and my life is remarkably enriched from having had the honor of knowing him, and Tracy had a wonderfully warm guiding hand and open heart for 80 plus years...so if you would-remember her, and her Grandma Bonnie in this most trying of times....bless you all, and thank you...
...and I would be remiss if I didn't remember Jack's favorite baseball team as well...what a fan they've lost...

I will keep your family in my prayers. It's tough for little girls (no matter their age), to lose a grandpa who they adored. Thank you for sharing with us, I can feel the love you have for wife she's lucky to have you in this dark time.

Sincere condolences to your wife Tracy and you, as well as Grandma Bonnie. 80+ years is a long time and now Grandma needs to be supported at this time as well. I hope you can all love and support one another until the pain starts to fade. Only time will help. "Time heals all wounds" - I know that may sound trite right now but it is all I can think of. It may take quite a while until your wife feels normal again. My heart goes out to your family. So sorry for your loss

Hello everyone.. Tracy here....The Beloved of the Gntlgnt. I don't know how to begin to thank you for all the wonderful thoughts, love and prayers that have been the sent our way from all of you. My heart has been very blessed by all of your kind words. I am doing fairly well at this point, but the hard times will come when we go to visit and he's no longer there with Grandma. He was a wonderful man and raised me half my life and I was lucky to have lived across the street from him and grandma for half of my life, which allowed me to see them everyday.
He and Grandma just had their 69th Anniversary on the 16th of January, gives me something to work towards. He suffered a stroke a little over 4 yrs ago and left him unable to do all the things he loved so dear like his woodworking and flower gardens. Watching his declining health the past couple of months was really hard and but I know now that he no longer is suffering pain and despair over his inablilty to live his life.
Contine to keep us close, the hard times are yet to come. We will need all the love and prayers we can get to pick our broken hearts up and move on, for life doesn't stop just because a loved ones life does.
Blessings to you all and thank you so much for being another "FAMILY" that we can count on and turn to in a time of need.
Many, many heartfelt thanks
February 4th, 2013, 11:49 PM
So sorry for your loss, Scottie. My very best to you, Tracy and Bonnie. :down:
February 5th, 2013, 02:37 PM
Dear Scott and Mz. Tracy:
Well, I for one, believe that Gramps is showing them angels a thing or two about woodworking and having the proper garden. Hold Grandma close for she has lost half of herself.
February 5th, 2013, 03:14 PM
(((((Tracy and Scott))))) Thanx for your post, Tracy. I'll never forget the day I listened to the phone message my big sister left for me, that Dad had had a stroke. My life as I'd been so used to it stopped as if slammed head on by a battering ram, and was never the same. He passed away in 2011. I'm grateful he will never suffer any pain again.
I know in time your pain will be easier to live with. Time is our friend because with every nanosecond we are a little bit more removed from the pain. At first the nanoseconds don't add up, then they do. Separation from the pain is inevitable because of time.
February 5th, 2013, 03:59 PM
Oh Scott, I am so sorry for your loss, my thoughts go out to you and Tracy and the rest of the family.
February 5th, 2013, 04:58 PM
Thank you for checking in, Tracy. Anyone close to GNTLGNT's heart is close to our hearts! We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Much love and groups hugs to you both, and if you ever get lonely stop on in, we'd love to see more of you!
February 5th, 2013, 07:55 PM
So sorry....((((Tracy & Scott)))
February 6th, 2013, 09:04 AM
Thank you for your wonderful words Tracy. That must have been hard to do. Your pain can be felt with every word. I'm so sorry.
February 6th, 2013, 09:59 AM
My condolences to you, your wife, and grandma.
