March 15, 1922 – May 6, 2011
When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did that day…
While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you…
And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand that
Jesus came and called my name and took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready, in heaven far above,
And that I’d have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.
So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart
My loving and devoted wife.
