SR GOSPEL: Marvin Sapp Talks Ups and Downs in Dealing With Wife’s Death

Late last year (September 2010), Gospel veteran Marvin Sapp was hit with a life changing blow after his wife of 20 years, MaLinda, lost her battle with colon cancer. In a recent interview, Sapp, who continues to struggle with the lost of his life partner, tells the Associated Press of his emotional rollercoaster day-to-day life.

“Every day is a new day. There are days when I get up and I cry, thinking of her,” Sapp states. “There are days thinking of her and I smile. There are days when I’m angry. Days that I’m not… We miss her.”

The grief may be for a lifetime as Sapp doubts he will ever truly overcome it.

He adds, “She was a wife that I planned on having for life. It’s still a process. It’ll probably be a life-long process. No matter what happens in my future. Some things you just don’t get over.”
