Another Birthday has come and gone without you. The days seem to be filled with loneliness & countless tears. After all of these years, I hoped God would heal my broken heart ❤. You were my life, my love, & my purpose for living. And you will always be. But, each day that comes and goes, promises to be one day closer to you. There is comfort knowing we will be together in God's Kingdom. It comforts me to know you are with your Mother and Father.
God bless you my Love.!!! I
Hail Mary, Mother of God, please take Care of my David and watch over him.

David was raised a devout Catholic. These Prayers are for him today, tomorrow, and eternity.

                (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen

Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your spirit , soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord.
Love Eternal,

Today I stretch my arms open wide and try to reach up to Heaven. The tears are still part of my everyday life, as well as your memory. Especially today, for another Birthday has come to pass. Another year without you, another year of pain and sorrow, another year of leaving messages which I hope God will pass on to you. In a few days, we have another anniversary, but I know with God's help, I will get through the day.
Please send down a kiss and a prayer, and I will do the same.
Your loving Wife,
Patti

Tonight marks 5 years since the Lord took you home. Each year I try to celebrate another New Year, but find myself wondering what is so wonderful about another year without you ? I know that you are in a better place, where there is no pain, no suffering, or tears. Only love and peace.
There is not one day that I don't feel the pain and heartache of your loss.
We will see each other again, and I know you will come to guide me home.
Your Wife,
Patti

Tonight I will light a candle to acknowledge the 4th year of your passing. I will remember every moment of our journey, and that heart-breaking day. So, as I try my best to live on, I am sending this special Catholic Prayer to you in Heaven.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

David, Today you have been in Heaven 3 years. I am still carrying on my mission, as I promised I would do on New Year's Eve 2013. I'm trying to keep my promise to be strong, but it is so hard. I'm sending my love and a prayer to you as I do each year. Please know that I will fly on golden wings to be with you, when my time on Earth is through. Until then, walk with the Angels. Sending love, Patti.

Today , I'm sending a message to God. I hope David has found peace in our Heavenly Home. My heart is still broken, but I find comfort in knowing that you, "Our Savior" delivered him from his pain here on Earth.

David, you have a Son !!!

David, 
     The most wonderful thing happened today. My Husband, the child you thought was not your baby, is alive. God has blessed you with a Son who has your dark hair and handsome face when you were very young. I know you were told that child did not exist, but he does. 
     It's a Miracle that he and Ty have connected and are seeing for the first time what it's like to
have a Brother.  I'm so happy for Ty. He now has a positive role model in his life ! 
 I feel like a new Mother seeing her child for the first time. I promise that I will lavish the love I felt for you upon him.  His name is Greg. I can't wait to meet him. My heart is filled with Joy !!!
                           I send you my love tonight, and light a candle for Greg.

David's Journey With Cancer:'

 
                           “Yes, bad things happen to the best people.”  

Cancer does not discriminate.” This year, there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed and 589,430 cancer deaths in the US. These facts and statistics are stated on the website of the American Cancer Society. Org.  

     David's Journey started in the summer of 2012. He had went through major knee surgery. After weeks of therapy, he was finally feeling better.

     Then it hit, without warning... A major infection that required very strong antibiotics. These medications threw him into Anaphylactic shock, a life-threatening reaction, and was hospitalized immediately. At that point the Doctors told us that he may die within hours or a couple of days if their treatment didn't work.  

      He was diagnosed with “Steven Johnson's Syndrome.” This is a rare and life-threatening disease caused by an allergic reaction to a certain class of very strong antibiotics. (In his case) With strong determination, David did survive, but was very ill for almost 3 months.  

     We received a call in the fall of 2012 from a Doctor who had treated him at the hospital telling him that he needed to come in for a biopsy, with no explanation. So we complied. A liver scan and biopsy disclosed that David was in 4th Stage Liver Cancer. We were determined to beat this, so we set out on a mission to seek a Doctor who specialized in his type of Cancer. After weeks of calling and being turned down, (The Reason: We were told the reason was due to one of the side effects of chemotherapy was suicide) I told them “OMG Really? “ So, I called one of my previous Gastrointestinal Physicians. He gladly took David as a patient. He started him on Chemo that day. We thought we had a chance. I gave him all of his medications and injection treatments. David even had 3 transfusions. After a few months, we had good news. David was in remission.  

     But, that good news turned into devastation within a few weeks. Our Doctor gave us the bad news. His recent blood tests revealed that the Cancer had come back and that David was going to die. He was given up to 2 years, but that 2 years lasted only 4 months and 5 days. We signed up with Hospice of Miami County. I continued with round the clock care and meds until New Years' Eve of 2013. That was the night my world changed..... I kept a medication diary where David and I both wrote our thoughts about the “Journey” with Cancer. The notes that he wrote to me and himself cut through my heart and devastated me. But, parts of David's notes were beautifully written with love and respect and he encouraged me to live on. 
 
         Our Journey is not just one, but of many who are affected by this tragic disease.

My Cancer Advocacy started almost 40 years ago and continues. Please visit my YouTube page, "Cancer, & the Journey on.” Feel free to view the various Cancer tribute videos, or post your thoughts if you, or someone you know are a victim of Cancer, or want to share your story.

God Bless,
