In Loving Memory on your Birthday

Happy Birthday. I know today is the best birthday my father-in-law has had. If L. D would have lived he would have been 70 today. God chose to take him home 4 months ago. We have happy memories of LD. I know he suffered much the past three years of his life. We all miss him. I was thinking this week about the good times and I really miss those times. The days before he became sick was so wonderful. I know that he suffered with all the things his body was put through. I would not want him to come back like that, even if he could. Nadine still has a hard time with the death of her husband. They was very close and always together. It touched our heart as we saw Nadine put balloons on his grave. I know she misses him. Kevin has his good days and his bad days. Kevin don't talk much about it, but I know he misses his dad. Many days on Kevin's way home from work, he will stop at the graveyard. Kevin told me that everywhere he looks around our place he has memories of his dad. L. D helped us do a good bit of things around our house. One of Kevin's hardest times was when he heard the song by Luther Van Dross " If I could dance with my Father Again" Kevin don't show his feelings much, but there has been some days that I knew he was hurting. I just wanted to take some time to remember my Father-in-Law today. We love and miss you dad.

God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered come live with me. With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and saw you fading away, we loved you dearly, but could not make you stay. A golden heart stops beating, your hard working hands put to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. God will love you and keep you until we meet Carolyn Marvinetz
