How are you fine I hope. This note is to let you know that I love you and that your inspirational messages touches many lives. Also, I would share with you a true love story of my brother and his recently deceased wife of 41years. Their love began in 1973 at a University on the north side of Chicago. They were both students there when her brother introduced them to each other. They were married on February 3, 1975 in a downtown courthouse. They did not have wedding announcements or a reception. After all they were still students with limited incomes from part-time and work-study jobs. In September, 1977 their first son was born and in 1979, she graduated with a degree in history. She began working for the federal government that year and continued to be employed by them until she was stricken with bone marrow cancer in 2012. He did not complete his degree in psychology but began training as a sheet metal journeyman to provide for his family. In 1982, they were blessed with a second son. During this time they were very active in their church. She was a soloist in the choir and later on they became group leaders in their church's marriage ministry. During her treatments for cancer he continued to be a true loving husband and caretaker. The marriage vow through sickness and health was truly exhibited by him everyday. She lost her battle with the disease on January 3, 2016 and went on to glory. My brother planned and had the most beautiful, loving and thoughtful homegoing/funeral services for her. On tomorrow, February 3, 2017 they would have celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary.
A special song that he loves so much is entitled "Faith", is recorded by Kevin Edwards and others. The love and appreciation that I have for my brother could never end. I know you will continue to lift folks up in love where they belong.
Thanks so much,
Love and Blessings,
