To My Husband – My Best Friend,

We both knew our time on Earth would end.  We did not know who would be first to go.  God chose you so I would know that all your days of pain are gone and our apart will be not long.

Set your sails into the wind and we will someday sail again.

Love you forever my amazing husband – my best friend.

Thank you God for 35 years together.  The journey has been so short.

Arlene
