Beloved Wife Anna

You are my one & only true love. You fill my heart & soul & I treasure all the moments we shared for 37 years. I miss your laughter, smiles, touch, voice, hugs, kisses, everything about you. I feel your presence in our home as if you are still with me as you are in every fiber of my being. Wait for me in heaven. There we will dance under the light of the moon, play hide & seek in the clouds & jump from star to star holding hands. We will stand before God & pledge our faith & love in him. Forever my love my darling for you are at peace & no longer in pain. Thank you for all the happiness you brought me throughout our life. You fulfilled my greatest dreams & we were both truly blessed the day we met & we have been together ever since & will remain together until the end of time. Forever my love.
