I lost my wife two weeks ago to the day and this is what “dealing” with a loss through the eyes of faith looks like.
My wife’s name is Lindsay, she is the love of my life and I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with her here on Earth. We have two boys together, Brody Journey Lewis (2.5 years) and Cash Allen Lewis (11 months). Lindsay was a healthy 28 year woman that suddenly got very sick, ended up in the hospital, and passed 10 days later. This is my response to her death that gives you an idea of who we are…
“I am unbelievable heartbroken to say that my best friend, wife, the mother of my 2 beautiful children has joined the sweet Lord in Heaven as of this afternoon. She fought as hard as she possibly could but there were too many things going on inside her body to fight. She literally fought to the very end. I first saw Lindsay when she was in 8th grade and God told me right then that she was going to be in my life. I knew the second I saw her that I would love her. It took a few years, but God came through and put her in my life and from then on I never stopped loving her. She is an amazing woman, mother, wife, friend, the list goes on. She had a huge heart, a stubborn heart and a beautiful way about her. She was so beautiful on the outside but it was like she never knew it. She sometimes got upset because she would think people thought she was rude, but she was really just a humble, shy, and very modest human being. She never knew how beautiful she was even though I tried telling her everyday as well as friends. She gave me 2 of the most precious gifts that I could ever ask for in Cash Lewis and Brody Lewis. They will carry her inside of them for the rest of their lives and I will do my best to make her proud as a parent. She is a very special girl and I will miss her EVERY DAY. She loved all of you and I am so thankful for your prayers throughout this fight. The support has been amazing. I wish she could have seen it, but God has a bigger plan for her in Heaven. He has a plan for all of us and no matter what, our faith cannot waver. She is in Heaven, she is out of pain, and she is smiling down on us and probably feeling bad she can’t hug on us. Lindsay ‘Breault’ Lewis I will always love you, you have made my life amazing and I will take everything you taught me with me to my grave.”
I enjoy telling stories about her and this is my way to share with others.
