SUSAN T. OSHIRO

In tears I watched you pass away; my heart was broken I wanted you to stay but when I saw you sleeping so peaceful, free from pain, how could I wish you back to suffer that again. It broke my heart to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of me went with you the day God took you home. If roses grow in heaven, Lord please pick a bunch for me, place them in Susan’s arms and tell her they’re from me. Tell her that I love her and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.

It’s been a year since God took you home and I think of you every day and miss you very much I just think of you as resting in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days or years. It gives me great comfort to know one day we’ll be together again. I think of you as living in the hearts of those you touched for nothing loved is ever lost and you are loved very, very much. Love, Eddie

She cheered the Dodgers, was an enthusiastic cook, and a low-handicap golfer. Marion was committed to her family, friends, and to her passions, managing to make an art of all her loves-shining brightest in entertaining-mode, with great food and a good story.

The good memories of love we shared are comforting me now and in the days ahead.

I live with one hope that we will meet again so we can continue our love story. In the meantime, you can rest, and I will carry on your legacy and be sure to make you proud of me. “You are absolutely right, Busaba.”
