As soon as my heart stops breaking...

On Saturday, February 27, 2010 I lost the love of my life...Joe, my husband of 35 years. On Friday February 19th, Joe was in a very bad auto accident. He was air lifted from the site of the crash to the hospital...Trauma ICU...in critical condition. Despite the very best care given at the hospital, and prayers from all we know and love, Joe lost his battle, never regaining consciousness, at 2pm Saturday afternoon. Any other words are beyond my grasp at this moment in time...and I feel that my heart will never be whole again. Rest In Peace, my love. *e*

God will help you through this time, and what you need to do is cry and get mad and do all those things we need to do at times like this. Life isn't fair in so many ways, but I know you will take comfort in the fact that you had this wonderful man in your life for so many years. You are in my prayers today, Elaine. God bless you and your family. I am so sorry. Chris
