Another Angel

My Darling wife and only soul mate, Violet Terez Harding, peacefully passed away in my arms, taking her final breath against my wet cheek, holding her son Richard and daughter Phillippa hands at 11am Sunday 6th January 2008.
Violet fought against all odds over the past 3 months in hospital, she was with us all on her 50th birthday 21st November, 2007, Christmas and New Year we spent all together, making light of her upwards fight. The cancer spread to her lungs, although strong in spirit and in heart, the Cancer took over, having her to go onto a ventalor, her wish, even then, despite several major set backs, she defied Doctors and the Cancer to make several remarkable recoveries. She fought to her very last breath with the heart and mind of a lion.
She is now at peace, we feel her with us continually beside us, helping us, she's a remarkable person, already she has brought together her mother and her brother who have not spoken for over 7 years, we are sure, this is the first of many things to happen.
We are taking her original home, from Jordan, her wishes was to be cremated in the UK, however, she will return with me to Jordan to be really 'home' overlooking the Jordan Valley, the baptisium site, Bethlehem and Jerusalem, to be in the sunshine, her ashes to be eventually mixed with mine.

G'day Steve... it's been a long time since I've seen you post here, and have often wondered how Violet was doing. I am just so, so very sorry to hear the sad news. Violet is now at peace, and I pass my sincere thoughts and condolences to you, and both of your lovely children. I hope you can find some peace from all of this.
Thinking of you and your family at this sad time...hugs...Helen...

I believe with all my hearrt that everything happens for a reason.  God tells us that "all things work together for the good of them that love Him, who are called accortding to His purpose."  As you mentioned, some good has already come out of this pain, and I really believe there's more to come!  Your beautiful wife is free from pain and watching over her sweet family.  There are many, many people praying for you and your family.  Please allow me to continue to pray for you all. May God bless you now and always with the comfort of His pressence.  Teresa

I am sorry for your loss Steve.  She sounds like she was a remarkable woman.  Everybody talks about God's plans.  Let me assure you Steve God did not PLAN this.  He may know what will happen to everyone, but it is a part of the life cycle and God does not 'take" people. Although now that she has passed I am sure that He has lifted her up and that she is with Him.  I will pray that your family's heartache will ease and that even in her abscense she will help to continue to bring you all together in a positive way.  
God Bless

Dear Steve:

My condolences and prayers. Your wife has almost the same birthday as my wife. Her's is November 18. I'm trying to recall your original pen name which was rather unique, but now escapes my mind. It's one of the first posts that I regularly saw. "There is an answer to everything except death. And death is the answer to everything." May your angel guide us in our paths.

My original pen name was Moby ****! Many thanks for your thoughts, we agree we were blessed to have had the honor of knowing her.

Violet was brought back to England to be cremated as per her wishes, her service was attended by over 70 family, and friends, she was a ray of sunshine in everones life, and during the service, although the weather had been cold, wet and cloudy, when singing her favourite hymm, 'All Things Bright and Wonderfull', the sun came out and bathed her casket in warms, as she was with us. Ladies dont give you your fight, she didn't, just her body, her mind was as active as always, there is relief, and there will be a helping hand available. My business partner and myseld are going to build a hospital in Jordan to help those who need help, Violet Oyc and lung Dr's are helping and will be part of Violet Mermorial Hospital, we will continue her fight for her, and look at all ways to help. Vi will return and be placed on the fire mantleplace overlooking the Jordan Valley and river, Steve (mobydick)
