Three years ago, September fifteen
You went with the Lord, an angel to be.
My best friend and partner for sixty-six years,
No way could I ever hold back the tears.

My heart has a hole that can never be filled,
But memories of you still give me a thrill.
Your presence I feel each hour of the day,
Your bright smile always keeps the gloom at bay.

You are a great person and left many good friends,
‘Til that wonderful time when we meet again.
I’ll love you and miss you my wife so dear,
May God keep you in His loving care.
