Dear Marianne —

When I first met your daddy April 4, 2013, I knew he was a very special man; and, he remains very special to me. My heart will never forget his dear voice: his words of gratitude between hymns, and the fervor with which he prayed the Lord’s Prayer. I’ll also smile every time I think of him dozing by the nurses station window, beneath the shade of his ball cap that cap is a treasure; don’t lose it.

May God’s peace and blessings be yours during this most tender season; and, may He give you many lovely memories, so that you may always have roses in December.

Ever hoping . . .

Always in Jesus,
