October 5th



Would have been our 56th anniversary For my dear first wife Linda and I Sadly passing away fourteen years ago Still in my thoughts, I still cry Every year when October rolls around Reminded of what we both had shared Five great children and a lifetime of love The joys, the heartaches, the care I'll never forget you, my very first love Till my final last day on earth Thank you my sweetest darling Linda For a lifetime of joy and mirth © Jack Ellison 2013

    A beautiful tribute to Linda, Jack. She was a lovely, lovely lady - I know you loved her very much and were very proud of all her accomplishments. She will always be in all our thoughts. It's good to cry, to bring forth all those wonderful memories you made together. Remember the good times. God bless. Elizabeth xox

    That is so very sweet Jack, I'm sorry for your loss of your first wife, I can tell you really loved her and lived happily with her during those years you were together! Even though it has been 14 years I know that it is still tough to be apart from her! I hope that today isn't filled with the sorrow of being apart from her but yet filled with the joy of the days you did have with her, the memories you shared together, remember with joy my friend! This is a tremendous poem, Great Work!!
