3 months ago today,june13, a part of my heart was torn away when my husband of 49 years, Wayne, passed away
Today, I have spent many hours trying to see if I could remember all the things that have happened over our last 49 years together. We have gone through a lot but our love has kept us together till now. Everything seems surreal, like a book that you can’t put down or a deep pain that won’t go away.
People say time heals but how much time does it take to fill the empty void in my life? My life will never be the same, nor will I ever forget one moment spent with Wayne. I just hope if there is an afterlife, that some way, some how, he knows how much he meant to me and how lost I am without him. Rest in well deserved peace, dear one. I love you forever.

Ken, you have my deepest condolences. My thoughts are with you and your Mother.

We are so sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing, Our thoughts & prayers are with you.

As I remember times with Wayne, they were always filled with laughter and good times.
Fond memories of many car rides together when we were little, and sitting around the dinner table , busting with laughter over nothing, just enjoying each other.
