Today, May 27, 2018, I said goodbye to my life partner of 54 years. We had good times, challenging times, lots of fun, and for this, you will always be in my heart. I will miss you terribly. Continuing on my own will be difficult. Please keep me company and watch over me. I know you are in a better place, at peace and can finally breathe easier and have no pain. Rest easy until I see you again. Loving wife, Marilyn.
