“I will miss you, dear husband.  I will miss our spontaneous bursts into song, our laughter, our love, our praying together at night and hearing your response to me on telling you  ‘I love you’, which was ‘I adore you.’  We are all thankful that you are now at peace and we know that when it is time to join you, we will be welcomed with open arms and we will all sing ‘You Are My Sunshine.’”
