In Memory of my beloved David - he went home to be with the Lord on August 5, 2008 - four years ago today. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of him, and the life we had. My heart still grieves when I think about how much he has missed in his children and grandchildren's lives. I know he is much better off being with the Lord, but he is missed more than he would ever have thought, I'm sure. I am comforted in knowing that we will see each other again, on a different level, as there is no marriage in heaven, but there will still be love .. the rarest kind! The kind that surpasses any kind of love here on earth. I await that day with much anticipation! I love you David and miss you so much - deep inside my heart! Always!!!!!

IN REMEMBRANCE OF MY LOVE
Going back in time
To memories not so sweet
A storm worse than a hurricane
Hit 1425 Heisler Street.
My husband lay there in his bed
His family all around
No one uttering a word
His shallow breathing, the only sound.
I couldn’t take my eyes off of him
The pain was tearing me into
Praying please God, just let him live
His fate is up to You.
I heard a sound like breaking glass
When he took his final breath
Later realized it was just my heart
Being shattered inside my chest.
If I could have joined him on his journey
And if it would have been God’s Will
I would have gladly lain down beside him
So we would be together still.
God was in control that day
Though my wishes were not met
Now he lies in Oak Bluff Cemetery
No more worries to beset.
Two years have come and gone
We know he’s in a better place
Yet standing at his grave
The tears still roll down my face.
What I would give to see his smile
And feel his love surround
This broken heart he left behind
To him I would expound.
So rest in Him my love, my heart
I’ll forever hold you in my dreams
And one day soon, we’ll meet on high
Where the Sacrificial Lamb redeems.
