"My Husband of Sixty-Two Years" To my precious husband each day I miss you more, as I picture you at the kitchen table or coming through the front door. I miss our talks and the special way, that you would always understand I miss the closeness that we shared, And how you'd hold my hand. My love is always with you, even though you went away, I find myself looking back daily, to so many happy days. But I have been a real trooper, trying to get by the best I can, just know that even from heaven you'll always be my man. I love you Gene Wife, Evelene
