MY DARLING D –I miss you so
The past few years I have been focused on your health. I was always conscious if you were experiencing shortness of breath and concerned if you would have enough energy to carry through the days agenda. I know you thought I was a nudge, a nag and carrying on like an over protective mother hen. You were right. Yes–I was so focussed on your health issues that I lost sight of what a truly remarkable person you were. Your unique qualities were rekindled in my mind from the outpouring of love and the abundance of comments, emails, telephone calls and posts left on the funeral chapels web site, all extolling your virtues. Everyone has their special fond memories about you. You touched so many lives–the old , the very young and everybody in between. Even dogs gravitated to you. Your warm smile, your mischievous grin, your infectious laugh, your trusting non judgemental nature, your empathy, were qualities that were reiterated by many.
Oh sure; you weren’t perfect. You loved to kibbutz and you were a bit of a bluffer and an instigator, a little stubborn and you chose to be ignorant about your health issues and how a washing machine works. I think these imperfections made you even more endearing.
We had a good life together along with our children, adored grand children , relatives and friends. D., I cancelled the venue that we had booked for a very special party that was in the planning stage. No, there won’t be a big bash celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, However we will be celebrating together in my heart. D. we will never be apart, because you will always be in my heart. I love you .
