Prayers for Elvis!
« on: May 10, 2023, 03:59:47 PM »
Please take a few minutes to lift up our brother ElvisLives in prayer today.  Unfortunately, he (very unexpectedly) lost his wife this past Sunday.  I'm sure he would appreciate your prayers.

My deep condolences. Cherish the memories of your beloved wife but remember  that you will rejoin her someday. From your posts you appear to be a man of strong Faith; your strong Faith will hopefully help to carry you thru these sad days.
                                                                       My thoughs and prayers are with you,
                                                                                                Ralph

Wow. I am humbled and touched. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and kind words.
I took a little time away from here, to grieve, and take care of arrangements, etc. I miss her, enormously. But she would want me to carry on with life, including - especially - officiating. I got out last night and worked a high school spring 'game' (intra-squad scrimmage).
I hope you are all well. Please tell your wives how beautiful they are and how much you love them. I am proud to say that I did that, frequently. It gives me comfort that I know she knew that I loved her, and I know she loved me.
Thank you for your friendship.

Thank you, Lonnieritch. It has been difficult, and it will always hurt enormously. But, I keep moving forward.
Health and safety to you and yours.

Prayers brother.

Two months and 4 days. I am seeing an entirely different side of life. Yes, it hurts. A lot. But I hope it never stops hurting. I fear, if it does, that it would mean I will have forgotten her, and I do NOT want that to happen.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I am grateful.

I can't imagine you will ever forget her.  Cherish her in your heart and remember the good times.  Take a trip to Hawaii in her memory.

I hope to take multiple trips to Hawaii before my time is done here. But, for certain, I will have one more. Per both of our wishes, she was cremated, as I will be, when the time comes. My son has strict orders to take us both to Honolulu and place our ashes in Waikiki Bay. As Chris Janson sings, "Go to Hawaii on Me."

And Brad says, "Hi."

Tell Brad he's probably the worst official I've ever worked with.   ;D

He's actually probably the best I've ever worked with.
