Goodnight sweetheart, goodnight.
On Thursday the 16th if February 2012 my beloved wife of over forty years passed away after a long fight with Alzheimer's. My lovely, beautiful wife, a light smoker, hated no one but had many dislikes, like most of us do, but would never, ever condemn anyone who has walked down that long road of life because of their lifestyle choices.
Beryl loved life and was against those that took life away, especially through wars. It was surprising then that she married me, a soldier at the time.
She was appalled at the attitude of people who disliked smoking. During her illness I had to explain to her that we were sat outside of our local pub because of a law that discriminated against us that smoked and we had no choice and nor did anyone care. Often we went outside in the cold and the rain to smoke, an action I feel sorry about as I should not have put her through such a thing. We eventually stopped visiting our local pub as it was so cruel.
Beryl was a gifted artist and music lover who is no longer dancing with the wolves of this world but now dancing with angels. She loved her ballet.
Rest in peace my lovely, beautiful wife, the hounds are no longer out to get you. I will always love you.
