We took our vows together, and said 'til death do us part, so when God came and took your hand, my whole world fell apart. No one knows the many times, I've broken down and cried, when I look back upon our life, just one thing makes me glad, that you chose me to share with you, those precious years we had. I know you walk beside me, and when my life is through, I pray that God will take my hand, and lead me straight to you. - Love you forever and always, your wife Sheila.
