In Loving Memory of
12/5/1957 - 3/19/2012
One year ago today you slipped your earthly bonds to go into the arms of your Savior, Jesus. That spark, that fire, like a coal tossed from the fire, your flame burned out. It seems like someone has turned out the lights. Cancer stole you from us. Have you passed through this darkness?
Cancer, this great evil, where did you come from? How did you steal into this world? Who are you that lives in all these many forms? What seed, what root does your vine grow from, robbing us of light and life? Wives, Husbands, Moms, Dads, Brothers,
Sisters and Children, is anyone safe? Scientists, doctors, medicine, and money hasn't been able to stop you. How many more walks, runs, ribbons and fundraisers will it take? How many more lives will you consume? How many more families will you tear apart before we find a way to wipe you from the face of this earth?
Phyllis my love, who lit this flame in us? Death can't put it out. A glance from your eyes, my life was yours.
Who were you that I lived with, walked with, talked with? You were my wife, my love, my best friend. We together, one being, flowed together like water till I couldn't tell you from me. I did all I could in my power to try to save you, prolong your life. But my efforts poured out like water on the ground. I'll never forget that last smile you gave me. I only hope when it's my time, I can face it with the same courage and calmness. You gave calm a spirit. I belong to you, be with me now. We'll meet again across the dark waters. Oh my Soul, let me be now. Look out through my eyes and see all that God has made-all things shining.
Love You Always, Dwayne
