From the moment that you died my heart was torn in two, one side was filled with heartache, the other died with you.  I lie awake at night and go down memory lane; with tears on my cheeks, I remember you always, deep in my heart, the laughter and the tears.  We weathered many a storm throughout our married years, but God gave me a companion such as you to share life with – precious, each day a life time through.  So, when you reach the top of the golden staircase, wait for me at the pearly gates.  God keep you in His care.

Till we meet again xxxxxx
