"My Beloved wife Sylvia...
So much love, throughout our 52 years,
Then our happiness turned into tears.
I've struggled greatly to go on,
Every day since you've been gone.

My constant prayer each day and forevermore,
Is that I stay faithful till my time shall be no more.
I truly never understood what the words
“I miss you” were, until I reached for your hand
And it wasn't their…

I close my eyes and remember our 52 years together,
In a thousand silent ways…..

“For we all must needs die, and are as water spilt upon the ground,
Which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect
Any person: Yet, doth He devise means, that his banished
Be not expelled from Him”. 2 Samuel 14:14 {KJV}.

“There is a place of quiet rest, Near to the heart of God,
A place where sin cannot molest, Near to the heart of God.
O Jesus, blest redeemer, Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before thee, Near to the heart of God”.

As planned, we’ll meet on the corner of Hallelujah and Amen
Avenue in the earth made new!!

Oh, How I Miss you..."

– Wayman Nelson, Husband
