As I opened my eyes this morning
I looked to the heavens above,
I whispered, 'Happy Birthday, Babe',
And sent you all my love.

Your Best Friend, Partner, Soulmate,

"Happy Birthday In Heaven

I wish you were here today
even for just a little while
so I could say Happy Birthday "True Love"
and see your beautiful smile.

The only gifts today will be
the gifts you left behind;
The laughter, joy and happiness...
precious memories...the best kind.

Today I'll do my very best
to try and find a happy place...
struggling to hide my heavy heart
and the tears on my face.

I'll sit quietly and look at your picture
thinking of you with love;
hoping you're doing ok
in Heaven up above.

May the angels hold you close and
sing you a happy song...
and I'll be sending wishes to you
today and all year long.

Your Life Partner,

John Culverson,  "J.C.""

"I give you this one thought to keep, I  am with you still , I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints of snow.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone, I am with you still in each new dawn."
