Story from the Quilt:
To My Wife: This is the hardest letter I have ever had to write. For I don’t know how to say goodbye to the most important person in my life. You have been my rock, my strength, had my heart for over 19 years.
I will never be able to forget all of the times we’ve had, either good or bad. But through it all, we still managed to keep our love for each other stronger than ever. My heart is breaking cause you must leave this earth. But your spirit, shall be always with those of us who will miss you.
It’s going to take time, to heal our hearts. But somehow, through God’s love & guidance, we will find a way to be there for each other. I don’t know what lies in store for me or the kids. Just know that we will make it through this because of your love for us.
I pray with all of my heart and soul that God will watch over us as he has done for you. I made a promise to you that I would never leave your side and I have kept that promise. Now I have to make another one, which is to never forget our life together. So, instead of goodbye, I will simply say, fair well thee, until we are reunited once again. I have, will and always love you. Forever yours, in God’s grace. Go in peace my love. For it is in His Name that I say this prayer, Amen.
