In Memoriam


On the afternoon of the 10th of April my darling husband passed away. He was my true love, the love of my life, and the deep wound in my heavy heart and the sense of loss greater than I can bare at times, is what I feel every day when I miss seeing his loving smile as he said "Good morning darling" at the start of each day.

We had known each other since our college days, and had been together ever since. We understood each other, and had the most loving relationship. We were partners, and good friends, enjoyed the same things, took great enjoyment from our love of nature, our pets, photography, art, music, travelling in our youth to every continent in the world. and as we got older we still took little excursions  to discover the joys of nature with our cameras and binoculars at the ready. After our 60th Wedding Anniversary we slowed down somewhat, because we no longer had the energy or good health to do what we used to, but we sat side by side at our computers, enjoying the nearness, and the companionship whilst listening to the music we both enjoyed, sometimes in silence, sometimes laughing at something on screen because we shared the same sense of humour.

Thank you for your caring comments, although I'm not sure that the black symbol was understood by everyone, but you still knew something was not right. 

 Condolences have been many, and in every case his joyous smile was mentioned, also what a lovely easy unassuming manner he had. He was a humble gentleman, and I am proud to have been his wife. Rest in peace my darling, until we meet again.

There are no words of comfort to give, I can't imagine the pain of losing your soul mate and so suddenly and unexpected way. I can say my heart hurts with your hurting heart and my prayers are for healing and strength. We will be waiting to hear from you when you are ready. Hugs and Love coming your way..

At times such as this, Sonjia, I am very conscious of the fact that words are inadequate, and I don't have the skill to use them well anyway, but it's all that we have. I take heart from your message that you had a wonderful, no, exceptional life, together for a very long time, and few of us can say that. To remain soulmates in this way for so many years, to share laughter, music, love and so much more is a remarkable achievement. I sense that you are bearing up well, and I hope that you will continue to do so. I am very pleased that you are my friend. May you enjoy peace.

Best regards,
Marit

As David said, it seems as if it was an exceptional life together. How wonderful to have those memories.

I don't know what to say, actually, other than feeling sorry for your loss. I could understand from your words how intimate you guys were, and I could also feel the tremor of missing someone who shared almost a lifetime all of a sudden. This should be difficult for anyone to move alone, but I wish you get all the strength and mental health to accept his loss and appreciate the times spent together. Keep his smile across you, and I hope you keep forward with courage. Take care
Love
Jeevan
