Widowed is the true story of how our family lost my wife and her father. It is a deep and personal look at living with illness, realizing you can be left alone and having to make sense of the death of a spouse. Widowed contains excerpts of some of the most personal conversations, prayers and feelings I took part in before and after my wife passed away. In reading it, I hope you come to realize that no matter what life throws at you, you will be ok and that God will see you through any ordeal. No matter what lies Satan whispers in your ear or how bad things may seem, always remember that God truly does care. The author's bio is usually reserved for things dealing with the author, his greatest accomplishments and his writing credentials. However, I only found it a fitting tribute to give you the bio of my wife instead. Darla was born April 22, 1972. She was the middle child of her mother's five children. Some of her many personal achievements are that she was a talented pianist, a singer, a childcare provider, an administrative assistant, a property manager, a better than average cook, a wonderful listener and a quiet but brilliant speaker. She enjoyed crafting, reading and had an eclectic taste in music and movies. She was a natural beauty, with a great smile and an infectious laugh. If those that knew her were asked to give 5 things to describe her they would tell you: she was a great friend, a wonderful sister, a lovely daughter, an incredible wife and an amazing mother. Most importantly, she was very much loved.
