My Darling Husband,
Today we remember your birthday and all the triple layer chocolate cakes we celebrated for 45 years. In my archives was found a time machine that took our memories back to 1985 which sounds so long ago, yet to me just yesterday when our five sons were so young and happiness was your mere presence every moment of my life. Just to have one of those moments back if possible. This is part of a local show they did on the beautiful artistry of your God given talent creating beautiful stringed instruments which your sons now carry on the legacy. It was a simpler time before cable and social media. You will never be forgotten my dearest love always in my heart forever. Semper Fidelis. Love you forever!
Your devoted wife,
Lucille

While words can never fully express how much someone means to you, language provides comfort, solace, hope and even inspiration as time creeps upon us living our daily lives eternally without that person who shared everything, my husband & soulmate. Hard to believe it has been six years today that my beloved passed suddenly without any warning. Every hour and every moment for the rest of my life, his presence is eternally missed. These words express the uplifting love we shared in sacramental marriage, representing a beautiful Tribute to a humble, kind and giving man of many gifts from God.
"What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for Life to Strengthen each other in all Labor, to Rest on each other in all Sorrow, to Minister to each other in all Pain, to be One with each other in Silent, unspeakable Memories at the Moment of our Last Parting by the Grace of God Almighty.
Semper Fidelis with Love,
Your devoted wife Lucille

My Darling Phil,
Today is special for I love to write parodies & stories of the adventures we shared together. I've discovered that there is positive beauty of expression in the written word. When silent prayers we say do not suffice, pen to paper can be the soothing balm of the soul. Today we celebrate your birthday with your favorite triple layer chocolate truffle cake that would day Happy 70 years! Hard to believe I am missing you more every year, everyday, every moment in my life. Time really flies in one lifetime. Each day you inspire me as I wander endlessly through your papers, drawings, notes that help me conquer the hours with a strong will and determination to 'record' all your wonderful projects from a time when everything was built by hand. I remember how when you bought me a sewing machine, you had to take it completely apart and put it back together with that little boy curiosity that never left you all your life. I am so grateful for all of the hours, hard work,and sleepless nights you endured to create beautiful masterpieces like my own guitar which I cherish. Respect and Commitment are two actions that you lived by. You will always be by my side, in my heart, my thoughts and everything I do. I miss all the time we would just talk and you would listen. The wonderful happy memories I have of your loving kindness sustains me in those lonely wee small hours of the morning. Nothing can fill the void without you so writing thinking of what you are missing helps me to know that we shared everything in our lives. We are soulmates in time eternal, my love forever in Sacramental Marriage! The Lord knows how much I wanted to grow old with you. The happy years we shared are enough to last a lifetime. There is an Eye that never sleeps, beneath the wind of night. There is an Ear that never shuts, When sinks the beam of light. There is an Arm that never tires, When human strength gives way. There is a Love that never fails, When earthly loves decay.
God speed your love to me, My Darling Phillip, Love and Semper Fidelis,
Your Lulu

My Dearest Darling Phil,
How can it be five years that you are gone from me. I miss you so much, hearing the sound of your voice. As the poets say "Time is fleeting" five years is but a second in eternity, for me it is like yesterday. These wise Scriptures describe you my dearest husband the "Gentle Man" who was my Best Friend, "United in one flesh" by the Creator's Sacred Sacramental Covenant Marriage Forever: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the Truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails ... And now these three remain Faith, Hope and Love but the greatest of these is Love." 1Corinthians 13:4-8
The soul is eternal. Poets tell us that if a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't I paint you? Words leave us speechless to show the you I know. I'll be with you beside you always when the world stops spinning and starts dying, we'll be together again at the end of twilight. Mystery of the Soul uniquely special bring us together in God's time. When the world is done, till we meet again. My prayers are with you. God speed your love to me, my dearest Phil.
Love Semper Fidelis,
Your Lulu
