This Is Our Temporary Home

Gerald Carrigan Sr….Chris’s Dad…..a great man.



Friday night felt like a bad dream.  It was the unthinkable.  Watching my husband having to say his goodbyes to his Dad and watching my MIL having to say her goodbyes to her husband of 47 years.  My heart was breaking as we stood in that ICU room and I felt completely numb…is this really happening?  I can’t even imagine what Chris was going thru, I could not let my thoughts even begin to think…”what if this was my Mom or Dad?”

He had been in the hospital for a little over 3 weeks and they literally found out what was causing his condition on Friday morning and by Friday night the ugly cancer had already taken his life. 

I know the next few days, weeks and months will be tough ones as we try to find a new normal without him. We will miss him dearly, but we know we will see him again one day!

Thank you God for giving us strength through this difficult time.  We know that you are carrying Chris and comforting him. Be with Brenda as she grieves the loss of her husband, wrap your arms around her.  Your peace passes all understanding. We rejoice for Gerald and though we miss him, we know he is healed and is in a much better place.  Lord, we give you all the praise glory and honor in everything you do. Amen


We love you Papaw Gerald!!
