My Beloved,

God has you in his arms and I have you in my heart. I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you, and then I realized you spent the rest of your life with me. I smile because I know you loved me until the day you went away, and will keep loving me until the day we're together again.

Your loving wife,

Elba Gleason
