My dear Wife passed away.

Tom's Journal.

Dear Readers and Friends,
The Woodstock Nursing Home in Kenosha, WI just called up on the land phone to tell me that my dear wife, Sharon L. Schuckman, just passed away a few minutes ago with breathing problems and low blood pressure.  They said that when they check on Sharon earlier this morning that she said she felt good, and they also told me that she did not suffer any pain.  I know that Sharon is in heaven now, and I am so very alone.  I just saw her 2 days ago and played a game of chess with her, etc.

Prayers for me are requested.  I am very depressed, and can barely type thru my tears.  This is a very sad day in my life.

We had made plans for our funerals, etc., plus I had specific 'Power of Attorney' over my wife, and visa versa in case of such emergencies, etc., and Sharon wanted her body donated to the University of Wisconsin- Medicine, for research-- her wishes, and I will comply.  I am in a quandary as to what to do right now.

I am so sorry for your loss. I pray the Lord surrounds you with His comfort, mercy, and grace. I pray that He would be very close to you and you would feel His presence. I pray He would guide you through your time of mourning and you would draw strength from Him every moment. I pray every memory of your wife would be cherished as a blessing and I pra you would be surrounded with friends and family to help you through this time. In His precious name, Amen.

Tom, I'm so sorry. I just now got on the computer and saw your facebook post. I am glad she is home now, but I feel so bad for you my friend. I pray God's comfort and peace, and that He give you everything you need. Most of us internet friends may live a far distance Tom, but know we are all holding you close in our hearts now.

Dear Tom

I am so sorry to hear this news. In reading through some of your blog posts since getting in touch with you, I saw that Sharon was very sick for quite a while. Deepest sympathy goes out to you, your children and Sharons family as well. I could see from your posts just how much you loved her. You were her healthcare advocate and she was lucky to have a spouse who cared for her so deeply and dearly... but also a spouse who demanded and saw to the best treatment and care possible. She knew Jesus Christ and had a personal relationship with him. I know you take comfort in that as it is of the utmost importance for any true Christian. God bless you and know that you are in my family's prayers tonight.
