See What Killed The 25yr-old Bodybuilder, Sam Standerwick


In what will come across as a really tragic development, a bodybuilder has died in his sleep just days before proposing to his girlfriend.
A truly devastated father has told the story of how his ultra-healthy 25-year-old, Sam Standerwick, son died in his sleep just days before he was due to propose to his girlfriend.
According to The Sun UK, Sam Standerwick, from Llanddulas in Conwy, north Wales, returned to his hotel following a night out with pals in Liverpool when he fell asleep and didn’t wake up.
An inquest has now found that he died of heart failure – despite being a healthy young man – because of a 70% blockage in his coronary artery.
Dad Adrian Standerwick, speaking to Wales Online, said: “His heart just didn’t have enough power to keep going and just stopped beating in his sleep.
“We just couldn’t believe it. We had nine weeks to wait for the inquest and it was driving us crazy thinking ‘What is this?’
“Did someone inject him with drugs? Was it a brain aneurysm?
“He had gone to sleep and just never woken up.
“It’s heartbreaking. If I knew then what I know now Sam would still be here.”
An inquest heard that Sam, who worked with his dad, had been suffering from heart palpitations before his death, on December 17.
The loved-up couple were set to be engaged, further adding to the family heartbreak
Adrian said: “The night before he was suffering from heart palpitations, something he had been saying about for a little while every now and again.
“My wife said to him ‘You need to get checked over. I will book you an appointment at the doctor’s for tomorrow’.
“He said ‘I’m out with the lads in Liverpool tomorrow, I will do it next week’. He got ready to go out to Liverpool.
“He said ‘Love you mum, love you dad, see you tomorrow’ and went on his night out. The next day Kim, his girlfriend, phoned us asking if we had heard from him.”
The worried family called the hotel, and were told by the manager that police were at the premises because of a serious incident.
Cops later arrived at the family’s home to tell them that Sam had passed away.
The family then discovered that Sam was planning on proposing to his girlfriend, Kim Fisher, after finding an engagement ring in his possessions.
Since Sam’s tragic death, Kim has posted on social media saying that he is her “guardian angel” and that she misses him “more than words can describe”.
Adrian added: “It’s not something where you wake up one day and everything is rosy.
“I wake up and for a split second I forget. Then I realise I will never see my son again.
“It’s become a physical pain, as if someone is punching you really hard in the chest, and you feel that you have to do something or you’ll just curl up and die.
“Our family motto is: ‘We have been seriously knocked down but we’re not staying down. We are coming back at you.’”
The family have now set up the Sam Standerwick Memorial Fund, which has raised £20,000 and hopes to have 200 people screened in February next year for heart problems in north Wales.
Sam’s family, including mum Deb and children Simon, Matthew, and Amy, hope that by doing this they can prevent similar deaths.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
