Robert E. Paine(1925 - 2008)

In Loving Memory of Robert E. Paine 7/10/1925 - 08/30/2008 Memories of a wonderful husband fill each and every day. And though the heartache lessens, it never goes away. You had every virtue of a fine and loving dad. You filled our days with sunshine, with laughter and with fun, (and a lot of jokes). We couldn't have imagined the loss that lay in store, but to have you was a blessing that will last forever more. I wish you were here today even for just a little while so I could say Happy Birthday and see your beautiful smile. The only gifts today will be the gifts you left behind; The laughter, joy and happiness... precious memories...the best kind. Today I'll do my very best to try and find a happy place... struggling to hide my heavy heart and the tears on my face. I'll sit quietly and look at your picture thinking of you with love; hoping you're doing ok in Heaven up above. Happy 88th Birthday Poppa, We love and miss you so much.
