To my dear, sweet, loving wife, “Ebbe Dey,”

From the first time we met we became the best of friends. That friendship blossomed into a loving relationship. Your family accepted me in from day one and became my best friends as well.
All the adventures, experiences, and memories we shared I will treasure forever.
I am so proud of your life; your relationship with God, your love of cooking & doing things for others, patience, understanding, and forgiveness, especially of me, our children, grandchildren, and friends. Your neverending determination and will to persevere through sickness and disappointment with the face of beauty and love. For all the love you created will be with us now and forever. You’re the Best! Final Answer!
Your loving hubby,

Thank you mom for always being there for us all. We can feel your love in us and we will live our lives to make you proud. I am sorry I couldn’t help you feel better- that was my only Christmas wish for us all was for you to feel better. I guess in a way God did that for me because I know you aren’t hurting anymore and I’m thankful for that. You were an amazing mother, grandma, wife and friend. You are the strongest women I’ve ever known. I hope one day I can live up to being as amazing a women as you. Thank you for all the love . Thank you for all the laughs. Thank you for helping us all learn how to grow up and live a good and Godly life. Thinking about life without you is something I can even begin to comprehend but I am thankful to know that some day we will hug and laugh again. I will miss everything about you until that day comes. I love you so much mom! We all do xoxoxo forever.
