October 7th was my late husband's birthday. He would have been 66 years old today. The photos above were taken shortly before we married in 1967. I can hardly believe that he has been gone 9 years. How have I survived that long?? He was a good man and a good husband. He always put his family first. I thank God that he is in Heaven and that he is waiting for me on the other side of the "river". I can see him there, with his fishing pole. He always worked too hard here on earth.....I hope he is having an enjoyable time fishing now. His youngest brother has the same birthday......only 30 years apart (same father, different mothers). My advice to everyone is "enjoy each day, you just never know what will happen tomorrow". God Bless!

What a handsome couple you both made. I read your email, before this post, now I know what you meant about haveing a rough week. bless you and your good memories. He was a good husband and dad. And you a good wife and mom.

Also, just read the cat post about a name. Since he's a male cat...

what about Lucky, since he was more than lucky or blessed to find YOU. Or Dennie? in memory of? since he came to you at this time.

I'm sorry for your loss, but glad that he left you many happy memories of him. That is the best legacy that we can leave that our loved ones can say that we 'always put our families first'.
