Overwhelming sadness…

BlackWreaths

The Black Wreaths are symbolically hung on the doors of this blog today as I honor the life of a wonderful man, husband and father, Mr. Z, and pay my respects to his family and friends.

Sunday, October 18, 2009:  Today, at 2:00 pm (Pacific) I will be joining with Mrs. Z and the family of Mr. Z in prayer and silence as they lay the mortal husk of this awesome man to rest.  I will include a prayer for my dear mother who was herself laid to rest on this same day in 1997.  Being a Christian in my beliefs, I know that they have gone ahead of us to join with the Savior and we will all be with them in spirit someday.  God determines when our work here is done and I shall always trust Jesus to keep his promises.  I have felt the love and blessings enough in my lifetime to know that as it is written about my savior, so shall it be done.  Mr. Z is now keeping company with the angels until we all meet again in our promised kingdom.  All my love and prayers go out to Mrs. Z and her family as they grieve their loss in this life.  May the love and precious memories sustain you.

Today, a very dear friend lost her beloved husband.  I am overwhelmed with sadness and wish to express my deepest condolences and love.  May God be with her in her time of loss.

Reaching Out

My heart is reaching out to you,
For what you’re going through;
I’m thinking of you frequently
And praying for you, too. If there’s something I can do,
Anything at all,
Think of me thinking of you,
And don’t hesitate to call.

Update:  The most beautiful tribute to this wonderful couple, Z and Mr. Z of the Geeez Blog, has been posted by Defiant Infidels Blog.  They have also posted a beautiful video in tribute.

“We do not choose the time of transition to God’s Kingdom. It is not for us to choose. And so sadly it came for the dearly loved, devoted husband of “Z” of Geeez weblog. “Mr. Z” passed quietly in his sleep on Saturday, October 10th.”

You can read this beautiful tribute to Z and her beloved Mr Z here.

If you go to Mrs. Z site afterward, please exercise good taste and kindness when posting to the family condolences.

  1. Terrible news, isn’t it?

    As most know, the AOW household is having its own difficulties right now. But as nothing compared to this passing of the husband of one of our favorite bloggers.

  2. AOW, it is absolutely the worst news ever. One is never prepared to lose the love of their life. Wish there was a supply of magic wands in the blogsphere.
