Cheryl suffered a massive stroke

Wednesday, 21 July 2010

On July13th, in the later afternoon while she was resting, Cheryl suffered a massice stroke in the cerebellum part of her brain. We kept her on life support, a ventilator, for a couple days until all the family members could arrive from out of state to see her and say their last goodbyes. Friday the 16th in the afternoon we had a time of prayer with the hospital chaplain and turned off the machine. Cheryl never suffered any pain or agony or suffering.

Her sister Debbie has been with me for over a week now as we have been very busy dealing with all the details that have to be dealt with after a death of a spouse. I do not know how I could every have made it through this very difficult time with her help and support. I am very much appreciative of Debbie taking this time to be with me. It has been very difficult, to say the least.

We will be having a service for Cheryl at the Northlake Christian Church in Bothell, WA (across from the Purdy & Walters Floral Hills cemetary). The service will be held on Saturday the 24th at 3pm. It is an open service.

Cheryl will be laid to rest with her parents and across from our daughter, Amy, at Floral Hills cemetary.
