My dear friend, Roxanne;

My heart breaks for you and your girls.

The loss of a husband, your companion, your best friend, is almost more than a person can take.

The loss of a father for your girls.. their first love, their Daddy.

Please know that you will be in my prayers as always for strength and comfort.

I believe if HE leads you to it, HE will lead you through it.

*Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.

Dear Roxanne,
it is hard to loose someone important in your life, but be sure that he did not leave you. Your pain is normal human feeling. Be strong and believe that everyone has his mission in this world and our souls live forever. Your did not loose, you got an angel you can talk with every day and some day yoh will meet him again.
Be strong and God bless you.

Keep talking with your best friend Jesus. That's a very hard thing to lose a spouse! I'm praying the Lord will Fight for you and your family and send loving helpers when you need them most.
May God the Father of our Lord Jesus be with you. I lost my Mom at age 17 and it was very hard. Keeping close to the Lord would have been best. I made many mistakes when I disregarded His word. I'd say keeping the children close to Jesus and His word and giving them lots of love is the best you can do. Depend on God's grace!

In Christ,

Dear Roxanne,
I'm so very sorry to hear that your husband has passed from this life. I pray that the Lord would bring comfort to you and your girls. Stay close to the Lord and allow yourself time to grieve. Don't be afraid of the intensity of your emotions but lay them honestly before the Lord. He will take them and use them to show you more of His love for you.
Lord, I ask that you would guard and protect Roxanne and her daughters during this very hard time. Keep them in your care and bring comfort and help as it is needed. Thank you Lord for your abundant grace. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Roxanne,
I am so sorry to hear of your great loss, and am praying for you and your family.
May God comfort and strengthen you all, as you walk out this difficult time.
Be assured, for believers in Him, that our paths lead us all to the same beautiful Eternal home, joyfully reunited forever,
in the presence of God.
Your loved one is in that Holy place now.. To be absent from the body is to be present with Lord.
Although he is gone from our world and journeyed home, know that his love is still very much alive..
Love is Eternal..it never dies.. it is in us and always around us.

May He keep you and your family and give you peace. My heart aches for your loss and pain. We live on after the loss of a loved one in the knowledge that we will be together again in His presence on that glorious day.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
