My sweet wonderful XYL, (Doris, WB4TXR), wife of 59 plus years, friend, sweetheart, lover and fellow ham has recently become a silent key. This has made me the loneliest and emptiest man in the world. We were kids when we got married (she was 19 and I was 17) and, of course, everyone said the marriage would never last! She took the test to get her license many, many years ago in 'self defense' and wound up liking the hobby - not as a participant - but as a bystander when I was on the air. She loved the Australian, New Zealand and English accents and when one of these DX contacts was made, she 'took possession' of the microphone! God, how I wish she was still here with me to 'take possession' of the mic. God blessed me by placing her in my life. Sweetheart, rest easy with our maker and it is my goal to see you again someday after I have continued your spoiling of the grand kids and great grand kids. Our fellow church members also miss you sorely! Peace, sweetheart, peace! God speed and remember, I'LL NEVER STOP LOVING YOU!!!
