    Matthew 19:6, saids they are no longer two, but one flesh. Marriage is not a solo act. Husband and wife must work together to make it sucessful. It is evident that you and Roger worked hard in making a success of your love and marriage, by the many years you were together, setting an example for many to follow. I am truly sorry that an end has come for such a wonderful couple, and I am praying that as time pass, you can reflect on the many years that you had together with your dear husband. The memories of Roger that is in your heart...are the same memories that is in the heart of his creator, and he will remember every detail about Roger and bring him back to life in the new world. 2 Peter 3:13
