“My dearest husband, Charlie: It was 39 years ago that we pledged our commitment to one another, but it seems like just yesterday. We’ve been through a lot together – laughter and tears, joy and sorrow and through all those times I have loved you every step of the way. We promised to love for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, for better or worse and it has come to pass. Our love has made good times better and bad times bearable. I will always think you are perfect – perfect for me. We have stayed together for all these years, no matter what. You are in my heart and our memories will always make me smile, I hope our laughter will never stop. Through the ups and downs we promised to spend our lifetimes together. We have been blessed for the last 39 years and I am grateful that God chose you for me. You were and are my love forever.
