He made a perfect gentleman, compassionate and kind, With more love and affection than you could ever wish to find. He gave my darling husband a heart of solid gold only my heart can hold. He was someone I could talk to that no one can replace. He was someone I could laugh with till tears ran down my face. Next time we meet will be at Heaven’s door. When I see you standing there I won’t cry anymore. I will put arms around you and kiss your smiling face. Then the pieces of my broken heart will fall back into place. Earl, I Miss You So Much!
