The Love of My Life is Gone to be with Her Maker

On October 18, 2011, Janice passed away with her family present.

Janice entered the hospital in September. She was very short of breath and was having trouble with her heart valves.  Janice was transferred to another hospital, which is where she was scheduled for her heart valve surgery on September 14th.

It seemed like forever till she came out of surgery, but finally the doctor came out and said she had come through the surgery but she would be critical for a long time.  Well, she was, for a long time (21 days) then she finally came off the breathing machine and was breathing on her own.  She could be transferred back to the cardiac ward.

Well, she was there for 1 day and had to be sent back to the cardiac intensive care unit.  They had found her in cardiac arrest in the morning and had to revive her.  She had been out for too long and the tests on her showed no response.

After several days of no response, we let her go to be with her maker who she loved with all her heart and soul.

  1. I miss her every day -- and I know you miss her every second. She wanted this blog to reach loved ones so they could understand how much she loved our Lord. That was accomplished. Now the decision belongs to each of us whether to follow and share as she did, or not. I know, based on the Bible, I will see Janice again. For that, I am blessed and eternally grateful, even in tears.

  2. I am so sorry for you loss, and our promise is one day we will go to be with our loved ones who left this earth before us, looking forward to seeing many in heaven.
