  36. Praying for the Holy Spirit to comfort your family. There just are no words anyone can say to take the hurt away. But what blessed assurance to know your husband is with His Savior. What a reunion. Thankful for the blood of Jesus and eternity in heaven. Hold tight to that promise . . . parting is temporary, heaven is eternal. I am praying for you.

    ReplyDelete
  37. BJ, I've never even met you, never met you in person, but I feel like I know you through the words and photos of your sweet blog and the comments you make on my own. All weekend I thought about you and Bill. And I feel like I have lost a family member myself. We get to know the people who's blogs we follow and they start to feel like friends and neighbors. So I'm sending you heartfelt words of comfort, just like the above commenters, because I know you will be hurting. And that's about all I can do. Please know that you and your family are in my heart today and for the days ahead, too. God Bless and keep the Conklin Family in their hour of separation from their loved one.

  38. I'm holding you and your lovely family close to my heart, and saying a prayer for you, knowing how overwhelming your sadness must be.

    He is at Peace With Our Lord, and his Loved Ones. When It's time for him to be at 'The Gate'..he will be there .
    I always enjoyed following you, but never commented. Although I did contact you once about getting a ST Joseph's statue when
    You were selling your house, and I was selling mine.
    I've always admired the Genuine Love and Closeness your Family showed for one another..
    You are so blessed to have had Many Wonderful Years with Mr Sweet along with Beautiful memories, and
    Now, the continued Love and Support of your Beautiful Family..
    My Thoughts And Prayers Are With You All.

  92. Words are so inadequate at a time like this...I am just so very sorry for your loss! Both of you and your family have been in my prayers. May God give you strength, a sense of peace and an overwhelming knowledge that you are loved. You will be greeted by this precious man when you arrive at Heaven's door ~ what a celebration!

    Grief is a path that is extremely difficult but it is yours. Please don't allow anyone to tell you what you should be doing or feeling. The pain will always be with you but time seems to bring a sort of healing and acceptance.

    Much love my friend,

  106. I just cannot come up with words to tell you how sorry I am for your loss my friend. What a sad sad time. I know you are going to miss him so badly. I don't understand how I can cry tears for someone I never met. Not my Daddy, not my husband, not my relative. How could I hurt for you, someone I don't really know? The answer is---this blogging world we somehow become blogging "sisters" and we feel the same as neighbors, church family, friends...we care for one another. We rejoice with each other's good and happy times and we feel the sad when one of us hurts or has a loss. We may have not met but we are still friends and we still care, don't we? It's a very special and interesting relationship, much like the "pen=pals" of older days, remember those? Oh how I loved to write and receive letters! Maybe you did too, B.J.? Anyway, now during this sad time I want you to know so many of us are thinking of you and praying for you and your family. You have friends and family you can cling to. If you need anything at all, just let me know. My thoughts are with you and I send my sincere condolences. Gentle hugs.......

  110. There have been so many beautiful comments already, and I could add nothing except to say that I will be praying for you and your family as you face life without your Mr. Sweet. You stated it so perfectly when you said he went through that gate, and we can't even imagine the beauty and rest he is enjoying now. I do believe that one day those of us who are covered by the blood of Jesus will see our loved ones who have gone before us. That will be great, but the best part will be seeing our Jesus face to face. The Holy Spirit will bring you comfort in your time of greatest need, because we have the promise He will never leave us or forsake us.

  111. Dearest BJ - I too just wanted to add my condolences to the many wonderful & thoughtful comments above. I hope you can feel the warmth of love from all around the world for you and your family. I may be the only one from Thailand but I'm certainly not alone - I had to take a TukTuk to the end of these sweet messages to you - in wishing you all the strength in the world in the days ahead.
    With love to you all.

  128. I bet the first thing he did was to sow some flower seeds as I know when the day comes, he'll be not only sitting by that gate waiting for you, but he'll have a big bouquet of your favorite flowers in hand. BJ, I can't tell you how sad I am to read this news. Keep him tucked away in a corner of your heart. Hugs to you and my sympathy to all the family. When you are able, let us know how you are doing. Love, Jackie
