To the Journal editor:
The absolutely most difficult task I have ever done is presiding over the burial of my wife Nancy, to whom I have been married to since May 5, 1962.
This gigantically trying time would have been impossible without the love exercised by David of Swanson Lundquist Funeral Home and Cheryl and Russ of Holy Cross Cemetery.
The burial service was entitled "Love is a Song" and was punctuated by readings from the Book of Revelation as well as multiple songs.
Notable among the latter were "There will never be anyone else but you," by Ricky Nelson and Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath my Wings."
Again, thank you David, Cheryl and Russ.
