Topic: GINGERS PASSING.

Hello CC Family,

It is with great sorrow and pain in my heart to let you.know that Ginger my wife
Passed last night.Wow sometimes I still can't believe it, it just happened so fast.
I want to take this apportunity to thank each and everyone,that helped me get through this with your comments and advise .It certainly made a big impact on me. Now I know more about CC, where back in last July I didn't know anything about this terrible disease.Ginger was a very strong and loving person.That she will be greatly missed.I always told Ginger that she had no idea how much she was loved.I would hear it every day from the school community.Thanks for all your love and prayers.If prayers where to heal Ginger would have been healed months ago.

Once again,
Thank you from the bottom of my broken heart.

GERARDO.

Re: GINGERS PASSING.

Dear Gerardo, I am so terribly sorry about Ginger's passing. I do know that the beautiful love you had for each other is what will help you get through until such time as your wonderful Memories overtake the grief.

If I should be the first to go,
And leave you alone, my Dear,
Let not your heart be lonely,
Nor in your eyes a tear.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I’ll not be far away,
With petals of love and tenderness,
I’ll pave for you the way.
To join me in our sanctuary,
And ne’er again we’ll part.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I live within your heart.
Take joy again in living,
As you did in years gone by;
God knows what of he’s doing,
And not be questioned why.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
My life with you on earth
Each moment filled with happiness,
And love so few be worth.
I’ll be waiting for you Sweetheart
Where skys are ever blue,
With eager heart and open arms
Patiently, for you.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
May faith and my love keep.
Your soul filled with contentment
Eternally, I sleep.                                 By Mary Harris

Re: GINGERS PASSING.

Dear Gerardo,
We know that there is nothing that we can say at this time to ease your pain. We wish there was. Nancy and I are so very sorry for the loss of your loving wife, Ginger. You have both been so supportive for our family in your words, hopes and prayers and we are so grateful to both of you for that.

We know from our discussions with Annie that Ginger was surrounded by the love of students, friends and faculty at the school and that she will be missed by all.

God has blessed both of you with each other and many fond and happy memories. It is our hope and prayer that those happy and loving memories will help ease your pain.  It is also our hope and prayer that your Faith and knowing that Ginger is with the Lord in a place without pain, without suffering, and without CC ,will help ease your pain.

Gerardo, again, we are so so sorry. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

Love,

Bob & Nancy McCandless

Re: GINGERS PASSING.

Gerado, I just know that Ginger has already dined at Teddy's restaurant in the sky. We are to be envious. Gerado, keep talking about your good Memories it will help get you through. Don't worry about others, talk is good. You sound like a believer and I hope you are as it will help you get through to know Ginger is all around you. When love is so strong, like the love we were privilidged to know, it never dies and you will feel it again and again. Just be open to it. Listen for it in songs on the radio, watch for it through blinking lights, Ginger is still here. Too many good things hve happened for me NOT to believe it. Please still visit us as often as you like. We love, love stories!
