Re: Passing of my Wife

RG.. So Very Sorry to Hear this! Shirley and I both enjoyed the short time we spent there at your house either coming back from or arriving to leave on a trip. It was obvious your home was first and foremost a place of love.
Please know we are thinking of you and your children during this tough time.

Re: Passing of my Wife

RG, I've lost two wives to illness. My last one died in my living room five years ago. Grief is personal and different for everyone. If you would like to get daily email messages about grief and God's help with it, sign on at

I know the depth of your loss and will be praying for you.

Re: Passing of my Wife

RG sorry to hear this. I never met your wife, but I do remember a conversation over a cup of coffee where you spoke fondly of her and your children. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Re: Passing of my Wife

We join with you RG in this season of hopeful sorrow , 1Thessalonians 4:13-18. This is God's promise to you and your wife, have peace of knowing and rest assured in it brother.
Wouldn't IMHO be a self contradiction. Announcing I'm humble is anything but. I'm proud to be humble?

Re: Passing of my Wife

We are in shock. So very sorry. We thought the diagnosis was beat and was a non issue .
She was a lovely lady and you complemented each other extremely well. Independent yet always a couple .
We are mourning with you . Stay busy ( I don't know anyone that stays more busy than you) and use the TWT family, we are willing to help in any way needed.

We'll be praying for you and your family .

Re: Passing of my Wife

Sarah and I had a fun time visiting a few years ago. She still fondly remembers getting to help her back cookies while I was out zipping around in your truck. None of us truly knows what Heaven will be like, but I hope there's a place for baking cookies to make people happy.

I just got home a few hours ago from spending the weekend helping a friend pack and move his mother in law. She had lived in that home for over 50 years. It was an interesting experience basically sorting out what to keep/pack and what to toss. We found all manner of pictures she'd forgotten about, mementos, letters, trinkets, and just bucket loads of memories from a long time ago. She's in her mid 80's, and still I was struck again by how brief even the longest of lives is in this world. The sense of limited time has just been getting hammered into my consciousness a LOT lately.

I will let Sarah know. She will make sure we don't forget to pray for you every night, just like Jack Giesecke after all these years.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
