Dad has greeted Mom with open arms and a fishing pole. He has waited patiently for nine years to share their favorite pastime together. In their wedding book is a poem that truly represents them. It reads:
It’s we two, when the days are bright
It’s we two, in the stormy weather.
Facing the world with its work and strife.
Fearing naught of its pain and blight.
Sharing the burdens and joys of life
For it’s we two, we two together.
So now, our dearest Mom, you are with Dad again for that’s where you truly belong – the two of you together for eternity.
