June 18, 1945

Sixty-five years ago today
my father left this earth.
A victim of an accident
while flying his small airplane.

Leaving us all behind,
suddenly we were alone.
My mom a widow, and me
fatherless at age five.

Fate or circumstances or
God's will...whatever it was
doesn't change the reality
of many lonely years for our family.

My mom finally rejoined
my father three years ago.
Now my sweet aunt Gladys at age 95
(the mom in photo above)
on June 11, 2010 has joined them.

Separated by death from her
sweetheart after 40 years of
marriage. A reunion has
come for this loving couple.

A beautiful, hopeful reflection. Still, I am sorry for your loss on June 11.

But what a great reunion in the spirit world. They are all so happy together again...The only thing is that we stay behind mourning silenty their departure from us. My son passed away 20 tears ago at the tender age of 15 from cancer and eventhough I know we will be together again, I still have a broken heart. I still can smell his body next to me after I bathed him throughout his illness. I still cry and I miss him tremendously.

This is such a sweet post and that photo of your parents is haunting, beautiful and priceless. They were a very gorgeous couple.
