  9. CandleImageAlthough I’m heartbroken by your absence, I have to say that God is loving, compassionate and loyal. You were fighting a battle that you couldn’t win. So,in His mercy, He took you off the battlefield, to rest. We always think we have more time than we actually do. I’m glad to have been your wife, and shared love and life with you, and to have had time to reconnect again, before you had to leave. You were many things, to many people, but what really matters is that you were, and will always be, loved.
    Rest well, my Beloved.
