Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
Far as long as there is memory,
They’ll live on in the heart.

Darlene, sending healing prayers and comforting hugs.

Sadness in my heart as I read about Audrey’s passing. Remembering her as the kind,loving wife of my brother. Remembering also myself as a teenager and how I encouraged Mack when he returned home from air force duty to ask her out........and how happy I was when he did.
