Topic: It was over so fast

I'm sorry I didn't post this earlier but, my husband passed away on Sunday at 11:20 AM. The night before he was breathing quickly and sounded like there was liquid in his lungs. My family and I prayed beside him. I thought his end would be soon, and it was. At 10:30 he was still breathing so I went upstairs for a nap. Later my son told me his caregiver needed to talk to me. My husband had stopped breathing and had no pulse. Nobody even noticed it when it happened; that's how quickly he passed. I guess we got our prayer for a quick and painless death answered, even though this is still devastating. Friends and family visited us shortly after his body was carried away to the funeral home. I said I wasn't going to cry because I had done much of my grieving before this, but I did cry a lot anyway. I've already made arrangements for his Mass and burial site. I keep telling my family over and over that we will get through this no matter how hard it will be, and we will have our other family and friends to help us. God knows what He's doing, even if we don't understand it right away.
