“In Loving Memory of My Dear Husband”


It’s hard to believe, you’re no longer here.

Words cannot describe how this makes me feel…

You’ve passed on to the other side,

Though I wish you could still be here

With our children and me.


You were a remarkable man-

Dependable, loving and caring…

You were the center of my world.

You were 1 in a million to me.

You made me laugh, you made me smile,

But the most important things was how deep

Our love was, and comfortable we made each other.

You were a wonderful husband, Father and “G-Pa”

From beginning to the end.


Forever will you live on, in my heart and mind

Forever will you live in many thoughts and never die.

With love always, I remember you,

With fond memories, I think of you..

I’m grateful for the times we had together.

I will always cherish my memories of you,

Forever in my heart and mind.


Love Your Wife,
