I know you don’t know me, but I am friends with Mike Noa. My husband, also named Joe, died suddenly in August. Our kids were 2 years old (son) and 2 months old (daughter) at the time. Our situations are different, but parts are the same. He has been gone 8 months, and I still think things like you said above…. Including:
“I picked an amazing man and held onto him right… Why us?”
“I don’t want to vacuum. That’s joes job.”
“Wow, the yard is full of dog poop? Guess that’s my job now, too…”
I can’t say anything in the road ahead will be easy, but sadly, you are not alone. Please let me know if you ever need someone to talk to. I’m sure everyone is saying that…. But not everyone has lived it.
Hug your Joe for every possible minute.
I pray for all three of you, often.
Praying for your family. I was 29 and pregnant with our second child when my first husband died. He lived three and 1/2 years longer than doctors thought he could live, with times when he felt great and we thought he might live forever, and times when he struggled to be awake at all. Don’t rule out a miracle – they happen. In spite of all of the pain, I wouldn’t trade one minute of our journey together. Joe’s love for you is yours to keep for the rest of your life, and I promise that it will give you comfort and strength whenever you need it. (You can buy the onions already chopped at the grocery store. That’s what I do.)
you are both in my heart as well as many others…..the path you walk is with many, have faith <3
there are no words, just know that there are so many people praying for your family. As I read your blog, I am crushed to hear your experience. You seem like such an extraordinary family surrounded by love. I pray for your family every day. May you find the silver linings and peace throughout this difficult and heartbreaking journey.
You are an amazing person and you articulate your feelings in a way that I feel them too. Stay strong for your love will last forever.
Amanda I know that what is so hard for all of us that know both of you, know how truly perfect you are for each other and that makes all this that much harder to take in. Joe will always be with you in spirit but that is not what you need, you want him by your side for always… And who can blame you. So with that in mind, I will continue to pray for the miracle you both deserve so much. That somehow, someway, the cure or at least a drug is found that will give you many years together and if this miracle doesn’t come true, than may you at least have many good, and happy days with each other. We are praying for you. Sending good juju and hugs love, Anne xoxo
Amanda let his love for you, give you the strength to start paying the rent and carry the luggage. He’s gradually making you stronger. You’re both in my prayers.
I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than e…
