Sweet Mama Lou


My heavenly-departed wife and love of my life.

This was our favorite picture together.  All that she was to me,  to her daughters Ang and Liza and the grandchildren, will be finished and posted at some future point in time.  I have already written much.  But I am not ready to post it yet.

The Lord called her home on December 28th, 2016.   Her faith in Christ was like a rock, and I shall see her one day.  But for now, my love for her must mourn with me.  She was a heaven-sent treasure whom I miss dearly.  The wound to my soul in losing her keeps me from all but these humble words at present.

Mine – I love you with all my heart, and miss you terribly.
