Don is the true love of my life. The Lord brought us together.
In 1992, I was single and just ended a bad relationship.
In 2004, I was reading my bible and read Mark 5:25-34 about the hemorrhaging woman touching the hem of Jesus's garment. When Jesus saw her he asked her why and she told him she had been hemmoraging for 12 years. Jesus healed her because of her faith, Jesus was her last hope.
I laid the bible on my chest and in my mind, I saw myself touching the hem of Jesus's garment. I told him my heart had been hemmoraging since 1992 and wanted my hemmoraging heart to quit aching for true love. I know God made woman for man. So Lord, if a man never loves me, then Lord, I ask you take away my pain of wanting to meet my best friend, lover, travel companion, a man to laugh and cry with, share common interests, loves dogs as much as I do, go to church together, and worship and serve the Lord.
Same year of touching Jesus's garment, I met Don Singleton and married in 2006.
Every book has a last chapter. Ours ended in August 2019. Don moved to a new address, Heaven. I will see him again.

You Were My Dad tho not by flesh but by LOVE🍃 You were so humble, kind & a blessing to every one. I will carry your memory & the love you showed me with me forever💔🍃

My heart is 💔. Don was a father to me & an angel & light during a dark time. Throughout my life no matter how far away or the time that had lapsed he was always a phone call away & never let me down. So many great memories I will cherish and remember. He was a very good man and showed myself what it was to be a family, to enjoy each others company, to make memories! I deeply regret not being there for you like I should have, but I know despite that you will still 4ever watch over me~😢There's no more pain or worry, you fought so many hard battles and tho it may appear as a defeat, you have won the ultimate gift to go be with your Father and not to suffer any longer. As you always did, I know you hung on as long as you could and I'm glad at the end you were at peace with no more pain😢 Heaven got another good, no GrEaT one & my heart is heavy that I did not spend time with you during this time or more over the years, instead of just a passing visit. Sending my 💓 and 🙏 to the entire family, I love u guys❤ Lisa Chandler-Singleton he was so awesome, I deeply regret not choosing it having more time to visit and spend more time with you both😢 we tend to get so busy with our our lives we forget the small things that would me so much later until the moment passes us. Don Singleton was my Dad and opened my eyes to so much. Despite being a stepdaughter never once did he or even you not even knowing me ever make me feel as one. He would do anything for anyone even if it meant a hardship on himself and he never spoke poorly of anyone despite what they had done or were doing at the time. When he loved he loved unconditionally and taught that to me also and I carry that with me and passed it onto my children.

Don was a father to me. He showed me what a true father is supposed to be. How a father is supposed to love. And what a family is supposed to be. We had so many great memories and he and Lisa both truly were my angels helping me thru and out of a vary bad situation. He was always there no matter what, no matter the distance or time that had lapsed. My heart is broken and I am truly sorry for the family as they always treated me as a part of theirs and it was a true gift that God placed Don in my life when he did. He will forever be in my heart & memories.
