I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one can be hard to endure but there is hope for us in the bible here at:(Isaiah 26:19)"Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning. And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." This loving promise tells us that one day we will no longer have to worry about dying and we will see our loved ones brought back to life right before our very eyes! Amazing isn't it. I hope you were encouraged and believe that one day you will see your loved one again.

I didn't know the pain of missing my wonderful loving husband was going to be so hard. Every ounce of my being aches for him. We were truly soul mates. The first date we went on was like talking to someone l had known forever. Everything was so easy for us. We had a wonderful 43 years of marriage. I wouldn't change anything about it. Except for you leaving me way too soon. I will always love you honey!💞

I met Ward in 1972...I can't even think about how long ago that really was...
But Ward was a sweet...kind Gentleman.
He loved his Marine Patrol job as it was known back then.....Ward left heart prints on alot of people. He made a Difference.
Sincerest sympathy to Sharon 🌹
And all of Wards family. 💙

We will always remember visits here from Ward and Sue. Every time we pass the Hotel in town, the memories pop into our minds and we talk of their visits and how Ward loved our little town and roaming around, looking for good places to get breakfast or just exploring. I’m so thankful we have such warm memories of our times together. Now he has moved on to his heavenly home and is at peace. We will see you again Ward and remember you always.❤️
