I am sad to tell Cuties my Husband passed on 1-28-15. Here is a bit of what he was about.

We were married 32 years. He grew up in Michigan, worked odd jobs until he joined the Air Force in 1957. After returning from the service he worked for an Aero-Space manufacturing company as a Supervisor for 18 years.
We married in 1982 and moved to Florida. We worked together opening a truck stop, then about 1990 he went to work for a company building gas stations from the underground tanks to the station. He retired, maintenance supervisor in 2014.
He was never a stranger to anyone. I have always said “I have never met anyone who did not like Blackie.”
He loved his 93 Mustang GT and kept it in showroom condition. He was thrilled to be given a gift to drive a NASCAR racecar in 2009.
He loved his tools and fixing things. I also have said many times “I will never get anything new because he would always fix everything. But that was very untrue, he spoiled me, he always found a way to make me happy. He proudly wore shirts I had embroidered designs on for him. He was a great provider, Husband, Father, and Grandpa.
He liked to keep a manicured yard and mowed many neighbor’s yards without being asked. He was always there to help others.
He was a great talented roller skater, and loved to sing Karaoke. His dancing would sweep one off their feet. We were a dancing show-stopper.
We were so much in love. His last spoken words were to me, and they were “I love you.”
His Memorial Service was on Valentine’s Day.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my Sweetheart.
Hugs, Suzanna

Suzanna, thank you so very much for sharing about your sweet husband, what a caring tribute to the man he is/was and it shows not only your love and respect for him, but his for you as well. You are going to miss him terribly and no one can fill his shoes. He lived his life to the fullest, and people will remember him. I hope people will continue to talk about him and use his name. You will make it through, with Gods help, and you don't ever have to give him up. He is a part of you. Rest, dear friend, in knowing he is at peace. Hugs, Jan

Thank You for posting his Honor Guard Ceremony, You were blessed with a wonderful man and he with a wonderful wife. Yours was a marriage that was a fantastic example of how a marriage should be, when people love enough that they work together and put their partner before themselves. You have shared such beautiful memories of your time here on this Earth together, and I know his last words in this lifetime will help to carry you through these difficult days, until you will join together back with him on the other side of the veil. It is hard to have a will to live when your heart and soul feel ripped out and empty. I was once given the advice of "Fake it until you make it." I am sure you have done a great deal of "faking it" as you have been going through these most difficult days just trying to survive. I have also been given the advice to take your most treasured photo of him and when you are wishing to bring him flowers or something special, instead of leaving them at a graveyard place them in a vase or on a stand by that favorite photo. I do not believe that our loved ones who have passed on, spend their days hanging around the grave yard with the other spirits instead they will likely be in all the places that they shared with their Earthly loved ones. Fill the area around the photo with mementos of your life together and then on your birthday if he always bought you a favorite flower then continue purchasing them for him as he will want to continue to show you his love. I hope and pray you will feel of his spirit many times through the remainder of your life. Many cyber (((hugs))) being sent your way.

Dear Suzanna. I know just what you are feeling right now because i lost my preciouse one just over a year ago and he too was a wonderfull husband and my greatest friend. We had just 26 years together and he was 20 years older than me but we had a lot of fun. Just like you our last words together were I LOVE YOU. Stan told me he wanted me to get on with my life and live it to the full as if he were still with me.
things will get easier and there will be days that have laughter in them again but there will also be what i call crying days when something as simple as a song will cause that melt down. But there will be longer times between those crying days. My husband was cremated and i bought a small piece of cremation jewelry that has two hearts. the small gold heart hold some of his ashes so he is still allways with me.
at the momment you will be busy sorting things out and your family and friends will hopefully be there to suport you but in a months time you will find that they are moving on with their lives and that is when you will have to show Blackie that you are still the strong person he loves.
I wish i could wrap my arms around you and give you a hug but please if you ever want to talk about things and need suport them please PM me and i will get right back to you.
Your husband sounds like a very special person and I am sure that he will be around you for a while to suport and help you through these dark days.

This is a beautiful tribute. I pray for your comfort and peace and a sense of safety and well-being in your new "single" life. It's a hard adjustment and I've been through it, although remarried now.

Be careful about making any big decisions the first few months. It's all so new and untested and hard to decide for "just" you. Receive others' help; they are trying to love you. Ignore the stupid remarks; they just don't know what to say and are struggling to say something.
