It was around the 6th anniversary of her husbands death. Marilyn lost him due to a misdiagnosis, and now her daughter's illness had been misdiagnosed too. Thankfully her daughter will survive this, but she has probably lost the ability to ever have children. I can just imagine how she felt...anniversaries of lost loved ones are always tough anyway.
She spoke of Greg on Facebook: God sent me an Angel, and 26 years ago I was married to my heaven sent husband. Even though God had to take my darling husband back, I will be forever grateful for the years we had together. The wonderful memories, the happiness and of course the greatest joy of our lives…our daughters Kristina & Nicole. Kristina…with her Daddy’s impish eyes….his laugh and his mischievous ways… Nicole…with her Daddy’s smile….his sense of humor…his confidence….So, while God may have taken my Angel, He left me with Kristina & Nicole as a reminder of the life and love we shared.
God has truly blessed my life. I wake up each and everyday and I know how lucky I am to have had Greg as my husband and the father of my children. God grant me the serenity To accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; And wisdom to know the difference.
As I spoke to her and told her how sorry I was that she had to go through those things, she told me; I promised my husband I would never give up and he told me to keep moving forward and go out there and "Make a Difference" so that is what I am trying to do.
We spoke about how our country was racing towards socialism and worse. She told me; no we cannot accept that and I won't accept it! On Friday a friend & I..went and sat at a busy intersection with signs (a mini protest) letting America know how we feel...we got a lot of positive reaction from people who passed by...we plan on doing it every week with hopes that our group will grow and we will WAKE UP more Americans before it is too late!
I think I just might on Friday, sit at a busy intersection with signs (a mini protest) letting America know how I feel!
