His memory is as dear today, As in the hour he passed away,
We often sit and think of him, When we are all alone,
For memory is the only friend, That grief can call its own.

We made our vows together, We said 'til death do us part,
So when God came and took your hand, My whole world fell apart,
If I could make one wish today, And know it would come true,
I'd ask God with all my heart, For yesterday and you.
Rememberd and sadly missed by wife, Nellie.
