On this Valentine's Day.....

sharing the words of a husband and father
These words, handwritten on a simple piece of paper
Words of love and devotion to his Wife and his Children
Simple paper, priceless words

Ione ~
Truly my last thoughts will be of you ~ and the kids ~
Love, 
Jack

I first read this note a few weeks ago at the memorial for Big Pops Mom and Dad.
His Mom, Ione, passed on January 2.  Dad Jack, passed five years ago
The memorial was for both
As I read these words my first thought was, what a gift this simple note was not only to Ione and the kids, but to all who are connected to them and to Jack.  
It confirmed to me where my husband got his huge heart and gentle spirit
His devotion to his family and those he cares about
How lucky I am to call him my Husband
How lucky others are to call him Dad, Grandpa, Brother, Friend.....
Big Pops

Wishing you all a day of love...
and may you all find yourselves as loved as these simple words are meant

From the Lane,
Sharon

The Oil Patch.....

a well known moniker by those who work or have worked in the oil fields. Makes it sound sort of cute, like the pumpkin patch or the straw...
