I will always Love my dear husband. He was my teacher for all things in our 34 years of life together. I will miss his smile and laughter and the stories he told me. Most of all the jokes and he always told different ones, he would sometimes tell a joke that I have never heard before. There was never a dull monument in our 34 years of marriage. He gave me a good life. He was always here for me and he would never let a day go by without saying that he loves me or asking me have I told you that I love you today? I would say yes and I love you too. I will miss that. You show me what real LOVE is between a woman and a man. I still get butterfly’s in my stomach when I think about you as if we just meet and fell in Love.I will always remember what you would say when anyone ask you how are you doing? and you would say, still short fat and ugly. Donald my love you will always be in my heart and never forgotten. I will try to go on without you in my life but I will always be thinking of you. R.I.P. my husband,best friend, and the love of my life. You are in Heaven now with our Lord and our sons. I will see you again in Heaven.

Your Loving Wife and Best Friend Pauline

Dear Pauline, I don’t know you personally, only through your Facebook friendship. But I know that the love you shared with your husband was truly a wonderful gift. He was blessed to share his last days with such a loving wife by his side. May he now rest with God and may God now comfort you in your time of sorrow. Prayers to you and your family, you are loved.

Iím thankful for the memories that Don share with me of my brother.

Praying for the family, that GOD be with them.
