DennyB, I also am so sorry to learn of your loss. My prayers join those of so many others for your wife and you at this time.

Eternal be her memory! May she be in a place where there is no suffering, sighing, or sorrow.

May you be comforted by the Lord, knowing that although your wife may precede you, the bond of love you shared is eternal!

My condolence to you and your family and may God show mercy on her and may He also give you and your family comfort in knowing that she is now in a better place. 

Losing a loved one is hard but if you completely surrender to God’s will and have faith that what He did was for the best of all, then you will be greatly comforted and rewarded. You will be in my prayers!!!

DennyB, I'm so saddened by this. I cannot even begin to grasp what you've been going through.
May our All-merciful God receive her and grant her peace at last.

There are no words of condolence that I can offer at a tragic time like this other than may her memory be eternal. You are in my prayers.

May Christ give her rest in the land of the living, and open onto her the gates of Paradise, and make her a citizen of His Kingdom.

Thank you all so much for these prayers,you don't know how much it means to me,whatever needs to be done in her,to prepare her for heaven,I am confident that the saints are with her,praying for her,she never had a loving mother or father here on earth,but I am sure that she will be comforted and loved by our most blessed Theotokos,who also is praying for her.

Eternal Memory!

I can understand your pain and the great love that you had for your wife.  My middle son is Bi-polar and it is such a struggle to provide the needed care and support in those situations.  As Father Chris said, may she be in a place where there is no suffering, sighing. or sorrow. No longer plagued by the mania  or the depression, having only peace and comfort.

In Christ,
Thomas

Dear Denny,

As others have said here, I cannot possibly conceive of the pain that you have gone through.  I echo what Fr Chris and others have said, too. You are both in my unworthy prayers.   Memory eternal.
