My Dear Husband, Lincoln Dorsey


We Were Together For Twenty-Four
Oh How We Wish There Could
Have Been More
We Were So Different, You And Me
But We Fit Together Like A Tee


Enjoying Our Lives For So Long
We Should Have Written
Our Own Song
In Sickness And In Health Till
Death Do Us Part
We Were Always Together
And Never Apart


You Are Gone, I’m Still Here
My Heart Is With You My Dear
I Know I Will See You By and By
In That Great Meeting In The Sky.


In Loving Memory,
Your Wife,
Helen Joy Dorsey
