The last 6 months has been pure hell for me. Kris is having Chemo, I am getting radiation treatments, and the worse of all is my husband is now in Hope Hospice House. I am devestated. Family has been here for several days and on Thursday the last will probably leave. This ceremony was to honor my husband for his service to our country preformed by the volunteer Veterans of Hope Hospice. Honor Guard Ceremony:

I am so sorry for your loss! I pray that the Lord will wrap His loving arms around you and bring comfort and peace to you and your family!

Suzanna, I am so very sorry for your loss. Nothing can take the place of your loved one, but try to remember all the good times. Sometime the memories bring tears and sometime smiles, but they will forever be with you as his spirit will be in your heart. Hugs and stay as active as possible. Remember God understands your tears

I wish I knew what to say. I have been with you this while. It saddens me to hear how devastating the last months have been. Please be like Deb and hang with us for a long time. (sorry for the slang). Sorry everyone has to leave. Prayers for you and Kris. You do have a buddy right? I am available. Phone calls are important also.

I know the emptiness you feel right now. I lost my husband after 30 years of marriage May 2014. He passed from lung cancer caused by agent orange that he was exposed to during his time in the army. My condolences, prayers, hugs and well wishes are being sent your way. I know nothing will lessen the pain and loneliness you are feeling right now except time. Surround yourself with the love of your family and friends and allow yourself to cry and mourn your terrible loss. My heart aches. Hugs, Barba

by crazystitcher 29 Jan 2015

Dear Suzanna, I am so sorry for your sad loss, but very glad that you two very special people have shared so many days of your lives together - you must have some wonderful memories and the kind of love that endures all. I hope and pray that those special last words of his, together with God's grace give you comfort and the strength to soldier on through your own health battle and the difficult sad days of missing him that are here now will soon be replaced with peaceful days full of warm memories and hopes for the future.

by sebsews 29 Jan 2015

Last night I lost my best friend, supporter, sole mate and husband. Thirty two years married. Today was the hardest day of my life. I feel so lost. My hubby's nickname was Blackie, because of his coal black hair in younger years. Over the years we both turned lovely silver hair. I never new one person who didn't like Blackie. I miss him so much. This picture was taken a few years back while on our first cruise to the Bahamas. Love that smile. His last words were spoken to me, he said, "I love you" Thanks Cuties for listening.

I can only add my prayers for your family. Things always seem to hit harder when we aren't feeling good ourselves. Please give your Husband a big hug from all of us for His service. Let Him know we are Praying for comfort and Peace. God always lets us know He is there when we need Him. I have alot of family that was in the service many years ago...I know what it costs from that end of it. Bless you and remember we are here if you need us.

by basketkase 14 Jan 2015

Suzanna........thank you for sharing such an uplifting ceremony....with all the hatred going on in the world today, this is a wonderful example of humanity at its best.......I thank all the veterans around the world for their service in protecting our rights and keeping us hubby was also in the Airforce and served in the honor guard at the White house during the Jimmy Carter admin and he witnessed many funerals of our fallen heros and he maintains a deep respect for all lives lost........

by abl789 14 Jan 2015

Please Thank your husband for me, for his service to our country. This was a very touching video, and a wonderful way to honor his service. I am sad for all you are going through and will keep you in my prayers.

by toogie 14 Jan 2015

This video touched me deeply, as too many people don't recognize anymore the sacrifices one makes, to serve our country. They don't think about the courage, commitment and loyalty someone, such as your husband, has shown. I truly appreciate his service. Please thank him for me and my family...I am also saddened to hear of all your cancers. I am uncertain who Kris is, is this a daughter maybe? I do pray God gives you the strength and courage, you and Blackie need, for the fight you are in now. May you all be victorious!-Toogie

Yes, Kris is a daughter (from a previous marriage) and to add to the sorrow, her mother passed away in November. Thank you for your kind words, Suzanna.

My heart goes out to you and your husband - it is so difficult when serious illness strikes both members of a devoted couple at the same time; I've added my prayers to many others from your friends here, that God's love and grace will surround you both with all the comfort and courage you need and that he will send you many "angels" to lend you a helping hand through these challenging days.

Thank-you, Suzanna, for sharing the Honour Guard Ceremony for Kris with us and thank-you to Kris for his contribution to making the world a better place; you and your family must be very proud of him; and thank-you also for having the trust in your Cute friends to share this with us. Please, when you can spare the time, keep us posted on your progress with your treatments and know that you are cared about.

What a wonderful ceremony! The love in that room comes through for anyone watching. My prayers are with you both.

I have no idea what you are having to endure right now. I only can offer my thanks to you also, and my heartfelt prayers as you take each day and try to wring all of the best out of it. May God be with you, hold you, and comfort you as only He can.

Thank you for posting his honor guard ceremony. Looks like many family members were able to attend. Sounds like your whole family has been going through extremely difficult trials. You are welcome to vent, cry, share or do whatever you need to, when you are going through times like you have been going through. Hugs and a shoulder whenever you need one.
