SMITHERS, Don
In loving memory of my dearest husband Don, who passed away April 22, My time with you was precious,
And the memories I have are too,
The love we shared together,
Keeps me close to you.
Maybe I cannot touch your hand,
Or see your smiling face.
Maybe I cannot hear your voice,
Or feel your warm embrace.
But there is something I'll always have,
Tucked safely in my heart,
My love for you, your love for me,
Will never let us part.
Cherished, loved and sadly missed.
Your loving wife, Jenny.
