LIFE LONG LOVE AND ANOTHER FUNERAL


If you remember, a couple of months ago, my dearest and I took a quick trip up North to attend our dear friend, Alice Olson's, memorial service.

Ray and Alice have been married somewhere around 68 years as I recall, and when we attended her service, wondered how Ray would survive without her.  

Shortly after her passing he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed away last week.  They are together in heaven...like they were never apart.

Two of our daughter are going this time and doing the driving.  So we take another little trip to celebrate Ray's life and rejoice that the two of them are together again  ~Life Long Love.

  6. After 68 years together, the loss is so great, it seems a blessing that he did not have to be alone for too long. It is so hard. Hugs to all of you.

  12. Oh- While I am so sorry I also know that was God's plan all along--that he would join her in short order. They are both happy, healthy and at peace now.
    Sorry you have to make the long trip again though. xo Diana
