Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow....

Two halves which created one heart....

Via Etsy Static

You lived together and died together much like Romeo and Juliet.

Two people who together, were examples of what love and marriage is about.  Marriage isn't perfect.   It isn't easy, but it is about compromise, trust, love and companionship.  It isn't about giving up but giving in.  Loving well.  Sharing. Respect.  Cherishing the good times and hanging in there when times are hard, through sickness and in health.... til death do us part.  

May you rest in peace...

Aunt Iris Parker who went to Heaven on February 23, 2012 and her beloved husband, my Uncle Julius, who joined her on February 26, 2012.  After sixty years of marriage on Earth, you enter the gates of Heaven together.  I will forever be thankful you were part of my life.  

I love you and will miss you greatly, but look forward to the day I see you again!

May God Bless your children and give them the peace that surpasses all understanding.

  1. Oh Lisa, I am so sorry to hear about your aunt and uncle passing away. What a beautiful story, though about the love and life they shared; and the new beginning their are experiencing in Heaven together.

    You're family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Sending you a virtual hug. xo

    1. Thank you Amy! I appreciate your sentiments! Have a great day!

  2. Lisa, so sorry for the loss in your family. Your aunt and uncle are at peace together and sounds like they had a good, strong, loving marriage which stood the test of time.

    1. Thank You Lisa! Yes, they are at peace together! We were lucky to have them as long as we did.

  3. Lisa,what a beautiful tribute to my parents. My mother had a way with words, and so do you. She would have liked this. I am so blessed to be part of such a wonderful family. I love you so very much. Thank you.

    1. Aunt Iris was a wonderful writer. Thank you for the compliment but I am in no way as gifted as she was. We were very lucky to have them weren't we? I love you too!!
