“The love of my life and best friend of 64½ years left today on a trip of no return. The angels said, do not worry, Linda, we will take care of him. My loss is their gain. He is smiling and walking through the Golden Gates, without worry and no pain. I will always be with you, and I will never leave you. I will always love you and I will see you soon. Until then…Love me”
