I recently lost my companion of 13 years whom I loved with all my heart. He had changed my life so much and showed me that there are good people out there and showed me so much love. I came close with his family which is also a very loving and kind group of people. We had many plans for the future until after having some stomach issues and talking him in going to the doctor our lives were completely turned upside down. We were told he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The doctors had given him 6-12 months. He had spent a lot of time in the hospital after this and it seemed his health completely went down hill. He passed exactly 2 months and 15 days later. The last week we had him with us I sat by his side every moment still hoping he would wake up and this was all a bad dream. His sisters and brother were there as we all were hoping we would have him back with us. He had been put on medication in the hospice home he had been transferred to a week before he passed, and after the medication, to help with the pain, he had went into a deep sleep and never woke up.
During the time we spent with him, one of his sisters always played WCIC and one song we played everyday and it also was the last song that played as he passed was Come to Jesus by Chris Rice. This song still brings tears to my eyes, but I also believe it has helped me through my grieving. I attend church regularly now and listen to WCIC everyday. I was very angry at first and couldn’t understand why God had taken him, but now I am at peace with God and know the man I loved is happy, healthy and I will be with him again one day. Listening to WCIC and the songs that play has brought me peace and comfort. Thank you.
