Cathy and Gerry and all my wonderful family here. Patty died three weeks ago today and it seems like three years. My heart aches beyond words for my beautiful love. Patty use to say that God always brings something good from things that seem so terrible at the time. I reminded her how much of a spiritual inspiration she was to everyone that she came in contact with. Through our post, I tried to convey the wonderful strength she was to me and the strength she immulated to all around her. I believe that this was the good that has come from her experience as she knew that we would all meet again. Through it all, she always had that beautiful smile. This year, Christmas is a difficult time for me. Every carol I hear and every Christmas tree I see remnds me of the wonderful times we had at Christmas but I am still drawing strength from her memory and the strength that she had right up until the end. I hope you all have gone to the website that has such a wonderful tribute to my dear sweet Patty. It will only be there for a few more days. She loved you all as I do also. I am wishing all of you a wonderful Christmas. Hold your loved ones close.
A life is like a song we write
In our own tone and key,
Each life we touch reflects a note
That forms the melody.
We choose the theme and chorus
Of the song to bear our name.
And each will have a special sound,
No two can be the same.
So when someone we love departs,
In memory we find
Their song plays on within the hearts
Of those they leave behind.
And when I hear the sweet birds call,
Or the whispering of the breeze.
I know that Patty's sweet song of love,
Is whispering her love song to me.
