To My Love of Fifty Years...
It's been a long journey since the first time we met,
but now our long journey has come to an end.
Now you can rest: no more sleepless nights, doctors, or hospitals...
Now you will be remembered as a great husband, father and grandfather...
Your grandchildren will always remember you and will be in their hearts forever...
Rest now, until we meet like the first time on your knees, by my desk...
