My Beloved... My Bershert

Shortly after midnight on the morning of January 6, 2012, precious husband passed on to heaven to be with our Lord. Most of you know him by my pet name for him... Big Daddy. I cannot grasp that it has been over two weeks since we spoke our last words to one another.
He came home from work early on Thursday to spend time with me before we were to pick up our new spectacles. I asked I was getting ready, if my hair looked ok. He took my face in his hands and looked into my eyes and said, "Beautiful..."
Shortly before 10 PM he said that he was tired and wanted to go to bed. As we prepared for bed, he helped me put on my gown because my shoulder was hurting and said, "I will help you... it is my job... it is my pleasure."
As always he loved to read a little before shutting off his light, and as our custom... he kissed me and said, "Good night Mrs. Price, I love you", and I replied, "Good night Mr. Price, I love you too. Sleep sweet my Prince."
We never said goodbye... but good night...

  5. Thank you Ellice, you are so right about the memory of our last night together. He had a way of making every moment so special. I still say good night to him and I can hear his "Good night Mrs. Price" to me.
