In memory of William E. “Billy” Hodge
April 25, 2016
One day the Lord decided that we were meant to be. He knew our love was
deeper than the deepest blue sea. He knew we would be faithful every day
until the end. He knew you were my greatest love, also my dearest friend.
Then one day He decided that one of us must go, why He took you, my
first love, this we will never know. A year has gone since we’ve been apart,
for a year I have had a broken heart. Twenty one wonderful years we had,
and forget you I will never. It won’t be long, my darling Bill, we will be
together forever. I miss you so much, thank you for the privilege of having
been your wife.
In memory of Bill, Pop, Pawpaw Hodge - we all loved you and miss you.
