My husband has left this earth in body but his spirit is still here with me. I talk to him every day just as I have for near 63 years. His last words to me was: "Opal, I've had 63 wonderful years with you". I then repeated the same words to him; yet I didn't realize they were going to be the last! I love you Fred
