I am a 46 year old widow and mother of four sons, ages 21, 21 18 and 8. My husband died in November, 2009 from stage 4 brain cancer. He was my best friend, my soul mate, my business partner, my everything. Two of my sons are from his first marriage, one is from mine and the youngest completes the circle of our family. My husband's ex-wife died very suddenly 8 months after we were married, leaving me the instant full-time mother of three confused little boys - wondering what had happened to their world.
If it wasn't for the constant presence of God's comfort and grace in our lives I'm not sure how we could have made it.
