Ray Price’s Wife Shares Tough Times in Open Letter
Price passed away in December after a lengthy battle with cancer. Janie recently wrote about her pain in an open letter on her Facebook page.
I wanted to stop by for just a moment to tell you that I am just now able to speak to you.
The days have been a blur since I lost Ray on December 16, 2013.
Only God knows how I was able to make all of the arrangements for the first Memorial Service, the Funeral and the Entombment at Restland.
The hardest part of all was walking into our home alone and looking at Rays favorite chair empty and knowing I will never see him there again.
Price goes on to reveal that she has been on bed rest per doctor's orders due to extreme exhaustion, before lauding her late husband's bravery as he dealt with his illness with grace and dignity.
Ray fought bravely to live for as long as he could. When we were given the Ultimate End Of Life Prognosis by the Doctors, I watched as Ray simply accepted his fate.
Ray made every final decision for the end of his life decisively with the same poise and confidence he displayed every time he stepped center stage, picked up a microphone and began to sing,
Ray faced Death with an unflinching bravery that astonished every person in his presence up to the very last breath he breathed.
His widow, who admittedly gave up her own career to support her husband's, insists she has no regrets.
Rays Love For Me Has Sustained Me. I Chose Ray Because Of His
Kindness, Gentleness, Strength And Courage.
What A Great Honor To Have Been Chosen By Ray Price Be His Wife! What A Great Man!
Earth's Loss Was Heaven's Gain!
I Pray I will regain my strength and that I will be able to go forward with the plans and dreams that Ray entrusted me to carry on for him.
I Am So Proud To Tell You That I Am Mrs. Ray Price!
