My partner in life for over 30 years.
We loved, cried and laughed with each other.
You always had a story to tell and a smile on your face.
Oh, some of the jokes and stories you would tell.
As I rolled my eyes and said, not that one AGAIN.
As it continued to flow from you like it was the first time you ever told it.
Over the years we have grown as a family and we have made many friends.
They also grieve with us in your passing.
We are blessed with three amazing young men that we both are so proud of.
I know as they continue to grow, learn and love you have been a huge part in molding these great guys. Thank you!!
