How to Write a Tribute to Your Spouse With Bible Quotes on Death

Venkat is always engaged in finding smart ways of managing things in a simple and efficient manner and in making lives happier for others.

Important Tips on How to Write a Tribute Speech

If you have been in deep love with somebody whom you lost, then writing a tribute speech or the tribute article is quite an easy a job.

  • Start with the incident of how you developed the relationship with that person which might be due to some good nature or special qualities in that person.
  • Narrate the incidents revealing those attributes, actions, activities, and habits that project those good qualities of the person.
  • Reflect on all those moments of life spent with that person and highlight on some outstanding performances revealing the honesty, generosity, affection, love, valor, determination, willpower, special skills like art, craft, music, dance, administration, management, bravery, etc.
  • Then you can tell your ending words of tribute expressing the void created due to that loss and how you miss that person. End it with thanks, blessings or wishes using your prose, poetry, or tribute lyrics and also by quoting some Bible quotes on death and union with God, seeking peace to the soul of that person.

Here is a link to some important guidelines for writing a tribute speech or essay as set by the University of Hawaii Speech Department.


How to Cope With The Death of Your Spouse

Actually, it is not a kind of remembering him/her when you are honestly in love with him or her. The deceased person will always remain within your heart. No question of forgetting him or her. It is only a question of remembering, enlightening, and discussing some of the facts and events related to his/her life and thereby strengthening the memories of him/her and to make yourself cope with the truth of the loss or absence of that person in your life.

You simply need to accept the fact that he/she is physically no more with you. But, in your heart and mind, you can always feel the presence of your spouse and there will be no distance between both of you. So, you can easily spend the rest of your life with his/her memories. You need not forget at all his/her presence.

In the below paragraphs, I am trying to express my tribute to my beloved, deceased wife and thereby presenting a sketch of how to write the tribute to your spouse.

Accepting The Loss of Spouse

It is more than 3 years since my spouse left my world, but it seems like it happened just recently. She was finding it difficult to breathe and fighting for life, even though it was only for two minutes. She was lying in my younger son's hands (he was 30 years old then) in that black midnight while I was running here and there to find some medicine and to call for the ambulance. Only two minutes it took for her to leave us in an utter darkness and to fly herself in search of light in the sky. We couldn't weep because we are men, I and both of my grown-up sons. All were struck in shock and could not believe the fact that she left us. Our neighbor, a lady Doctor confirmed that she is no more and we could not trust her with a wish to see her breathe again. But, no, she determined herself to leave and so no return was to be there. And we had to accept the fact and make ourselves prepared for our future journey without her.

Describe the Best Qualities of Your Spouse

She was full of kindness and love to all of us and to her neighbors. She never let us feel discomfort or unhappy at any circumstance by attending to all our needs timely and beforehand. She has been a great support to me in all my bad times and confusions giving advice that are prudent and workable. She was the good wife since beginning throughout my life journey and she has been helpful to her neighbors also in their bad times. She used to offer food and other assistance to them and used to be always ready to help them in spite of inconvenience to her own self. They used to come at odd times also to seek her help in knitting, stitching or some other material help.

She has been very kind to birds and animals also. We used to keep parrots and myna birds for many years. She used to be very kind to those birds and always taking care of them. If any bird did not want to stay, she used to let her free immediately. She used to celebrate the birthdays also of those birds by celebrating on completion of each one year of their being with us. We used to enjoy much with those birds.

A Description of Her Great Determination and Patience

She has been very unlucky since her birth. She lost her father even when she was in her mother's womb. This made her mother develop hatred towards her. She totally neglected this child and she was brought up by her eldest sister. But she had to work there and assist the sister in her work, neglecting studies. Even then she completed her Intermediate with good marks and after marriage, she completed her degree also. All her siblings (total 10) disliked her and accused her as the cause of their father's death and tried to exploit and ill-treat her in one way or other. But she was bold enough to face the circumstances. Even after marriage, she had a difficult life due to financial problems and also due to the misbehavior of her siblings. But she was determined to face the circumstances and never lost hope or became tense. But mentally she had many disturbances. Even then, she faced everything boldly and got cured herself by visiting the psychiatrists and taking their advice for many years. But then physically she deteriorated facing so many problems including our elder son's mental problems. Even then, she faced everything so boldly and courageously that, until her last minute, she kept fighting and controlling all diseases like BP, Diabetes, etc. everything smilingly and then that fateful night came on 22/10/2012 ending her life on earth. I started blogging only after that date by posting a post on 27/10/12 describing how death takes away life stealthily without your notice.

A Description of Her Great Talents

She has been a singer since her childhood. She used to narrate me the tales of her singing devotional songs along with her grandmother when she was of only 1 or 2 years old. Those were the only happy days when her grandmother was with her for 2 years. She continued this singing habit until her death. She had a very melodious voice and all people liked her songs throughout her childhood in schools to her prime age and even at old age among all neighbors. She imitated the voices of all four famous lady singers in India of that time like P. Susheela, L.R.Eswari, in Telugu language and of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle in Hindi language. I loved her voice so much and enjoyed her singing throughout my life. At present, I have her recorded songs in a cassette which were recorded 6 months before her death. She used to sing all Hindi songs as well. But I am sorry that I could not promote her voice to bring her some fame. It was her bad luck to marry me.

She was very good at knitting and stitching and in home decoration. She used to knit the woolen sweaters for me, herself and our sons and other times to neighbors also. And she used to stitch designs on sarees also which were liked by all. She presented one saree to the Doctor who treated her for Schizophrenia and she was much appreciated for her talent at that time in 1996 by many people.

Her Bravery in Fight Against Corruption

She used to be very sensitive and honest. She never liked people who were dishonest and of malicious intentions. She used to be very straightforward and tell the blunt truth over the face if somebody was wrong or mischievous. She always stood against corruption and intentional mischief by anybody. She even did not tolerate anybody doing harm to our neighbors and tried to restore justice to them at all times (from others and from our administration in the colony where we lived). Most neighbors took help from her in such matters. But she got resistance from some of the people in such works who tried to threaten her. She faced them boldly because of her sensitivity to generosity and kindness to those in need. All, who got help from her, regarded her with great respect.

Bible Quotes on Death

Bible Quotes about Death:

John 14:1-4

Jesus told "In my Father's house (Heaven) are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And, if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, that where I am you may be also."

So, there is no need to regret or be worried as the dead person is only going to live with Jesus and God.

2 Corinthians 5:6-8

"We are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord."

So, don't be afraid of death. Rather welcome it with love.

In the end, I would like to say that I am very proud to have been her husband and thank God for sending her into my life as my wife for all those 38 years since 1974 to 2012. May her soul be happy wherever it is.

My Thanks to a Writer

I would like to express my thanks to Sunshine 625 (Linda Bilyeu) for giving me the inspiration in writing this hub. I got stimulated by her tribute to her Mother. On reading that hub, I thought why shouldn't I write about my reflections on my wife's death and how I am coping with the loss. And, the result is this tribute of mine to my wife.

An Emotional Tribute to a Deceased Wife


Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on April 20, 2020:

Very much pleased to hear from you, Demas. I appreciate your nice words. Thanks a lot.

Demas W Jasper from Today's America and The World Beyond on April 20, 2020:

How did I ever miss this fine tribute and the thoughts it poses. Finely done, and a remembrance the creation of which must have given you great pleasure. Promoting what is good, and encouraging it in others seems a fitting joining of her values and yours. May that pairing continue on, always.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on August 01, 2019:

Thank you, Denise, for your deep concern. Even though she is physically not there, she is always present with me in my heart through the memories of her. So, I do not feel alone.

Denise McGill from Fresno CA on July 30, 2019:

This is such a touching tribute to your lovely wife. I'm so sorry for your great loss and sorry that you feel you must keep all your sorrow in check. It is such a difficult thing to be strong for your children when all you want to do is scream to the heavens. It was sweet to share all your best memories of her with us. I'm praying for you.



Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on February 22, 2019:

This tribute to your wife is beautiful. Thanks for sharing a sense of who she was as a person. Her spirit lives on in you and everyone who was blessed enough to know her. May the memories and love you share be eternal. Those videos you inserted were excellent. While I still have my loving husband, all of my nuclear family, as well This tribute to your wife is beautiful. Thanks for sharing a sense of who she was as a person. Her spirit lives on in you and everyone who was blessed enough to know her. May the memories and love you share be eternal.

While I still have my loving husband, all of my nuclear family, as well as much of my extended family, have passed on to the next life. It is so hard losing loved ones. Thinking of being reunited someday in life to come does help ease the pain somewhat.

Those videos you inserted were excellent. The man in that last video still has an obvious exuberance for life despite his loss.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on December 21, 2018:

Thanks, Eric, my Brother. I hope many can compare with such situations in one another's lives. Always there's much going on in this earthly life that one needs to observe and grasp some good messages from everything that he comes across. I get much wisdom from you whenever I visit yours.

My blessings to you and your family.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on December 21, 2018:

Thanks for coming over to see me. I am glad you did so I came over here.

I was applying this to my life. It seems it works for a troubled marriage also. Not my spouse but my ex-wife.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on June 24, 2018:

Thank you for the visit and a nice comment. And, for the good wishes.

threekeys on June 24, 2018:

Venkatachari, your love, respect and admiration shone through the tribute to your beloved wife. I am so sorry for your loss. My best wishes to you and your son.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on June 24, 2018:

Thanks, Chris, for appreciating my work and attitudes. This connection with the spouse is an eternal one that does not break with one's demise. I always feel her in my heart. I appreciate your noble soul also in this regard. I am afraid many few people keep this type of attitude with their life-partners.

I am fine though taking some BP medicines. Thanks for enquiring. And, blessings to you.

Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on June 24, 2018:

Venkatachari M, You and I have this in common. I wrote a kind tribute to my wife. I appreciate what you have done here. I hope you are doing well these days.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on July 07, 2017:

True. We a kind of celebrate it every year on that particular day by offering food and prayers for the departed soul and by feeding at least one or two persons known as Bhoktas who represent the departed souls. Actually, they represent three generations of departed souls. We prepare 4 dishes of curries and four varieties of chutneys and other dishes on that day. I had to cook the food last two years with my own hands on that day.

Tamara Wilhite from Fort Worth, Texas on July 07, 2017:

Our society views grief, pain and other negative emotions as bad. In reality, they are a measure of the love, joy and positive experiences we had. We shouldn't censor but celebrate grief and those lost.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on February 12, 2017:

Yes, I feel her presence always with me even now. Thanks for the visit and expressing your feelings so kindly.

JL Reyes from Saturns Rings on February 12, 2017:

I am deeply sorry you have gone through and have to continue to go through the loss of your beloved wife. She is with you always, thank you for sharing with us her story, and your love. I cannot imagine what you feel. I do know that I've never felt more inspired and filled with love.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on December 10, 2016:

Yes, Jackie. She is still in my life and I feel her always in my breathe. I am not separated from her soul.

I have been unable to make the changes here till now. I will do it leisurely.

Thanks for your return here and leaving such a warm comment.

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on December 10, 2016:

I cannot imagine anyone not getting so much from this love and life you have shared with us. Your wife would have been so proud of this I know. Your love for her shines through. I know your days are still filled with her spirit and the happy memories of your life together.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on December 10, 2016:

You are welcome Ven. Those who have loved deeply and lose that special one will love reading about her life..

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on December 09, 2016:

Thank you, Ruby, for the visit and the appreciation. Yes, she was very special for me and I am proud to be her husband.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on December 09, 2016:

This is such a beautiful tribute to your wife. I know you miss her. I have lost my husband too, and the memory lives on. She was special, her love for animals and the environment was touching.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on November 03, 2016:

Yes. Noble and ideal people always think for others and do not worry or care for their own lives.

manatita44 from london on November 03, 2016:

Yes a noble theme and a sad ending. Sometimes ends that way. I saw one where Denzil Washington sacrificed his life for others. How noble!

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on November 03, 2016:

Thanks, Manatita, for this nice and lengthy feedback regarding love, death, and grace of God. Yes, I believe she is lying there in the lap of that Eternal Supreme Being and from there watching and guiding us.

You were asking about that movie we watched on Sunday. It was about the busting of a gang of child kidnappers who were operating internationally. The hero, whose own daughter got kidnapped, traces the gang facing many hardships through the mountains, valleys, and tunnels somewhere in Europe border (I think) and frees thousands of victims including his own daughter. But, he gets killed in the end. We enjoyed the movie with that noble theme.

manatita44 from london on November 02, 2016:

A very poignant tale of love and courage, sometimes in the face of adversity. I'm glad that you wrote that piece. Feels like a healing piece, one giving you the capacity to carry on.

Perhaps her Heart was full. She led a rich life and God gave her a noble and beautiful husband and children. Once He was happy, He called her home. Perhaps she is looking over you.

One can only say so much in times like these. The one at the end of the loss knows best. I have written some lofty poems on parting and Rumi has too. Yet everything is personal to the individual Soul and his or her inner Pilot.

The Venkatachari I know, is a peaceful and loving man and so one can say that perhaps the sun is still shining even when the shadows are dense.

I like the idea that you wrote a tribute and that the second video reflected it so well ... a combination of human Love and love for Christ, which ultimately cements the relationship. A very meaningful and powerful message. Much Love, My B, and I hope that the movie was worth seeing for you and son.

May your wife continue to be in the lap of the Eternal, the birthless, deathless and ever-compassionate One. Om Shanti!!

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on November 02, 2016:

Thank you, Missy, for returning back and leaving furthermore encouraging words. Blessings.

Missy Smith from Florida on November 02, 2016:

Well, I have to say, I am 45 this month, and I still haven't found a suitor that suits me. lol. So, I can relate to both son's singleness. I am, however, lucky to have had long engagements that bore me beautiful children. Even so, I never got to participate in a wedding march. In your country, I would probably be shunned for having children out of wedlock. It is very common here in America though.

As far as your regrets of not helping your wife share her talents more globally; I like to think sometimes not being famous or becoming wealthy for our talents is actually a blessing not regret. As I have questioned in these last months' God's presence in my own life and in this world, something in me still wants to believe he has a particular guided path for everyone, which teaches and shows each of us in a special light even if it is not on an upscale status. I see your wife more beautiful and -awe inspiring- because she did not relate to fame or wealth. She was purer that way. More valuable to the lives she touched. Be proud of that Venkat. You and she had many blessings, and you have lovely memories of her. Peace and love my friend! ~Missy

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on November 02, 2016:

Missy, I am really happy that you enjoyed this hub and found it to be a good work. But, what I feel sorry for is that I could not help her in improving her skills and get some recognition publicly which she deserved like other performing artists. All that we have presently is a taped audio of 10 songs (Telugu language) recorded a few weeks before her death and some of those knittings and designer sarees that I showcased in above photos. She wished that her grandchildren get some of her skills and do something noteworthy. But, the elder one decided not to marry anybody and the other son is still looking for a match. And, he is already 37!

Missy Smith from Florida on November 02, 2016:

I really enjoyed reading this Venkat. Your wife sounds lovely. I find often, that it is the most special people who have the worst luck when it comes to health and wealth. However, I believe you were wrong when you said part of her bad luck was marrying you. I think you were probably, along with your sons, her one true happiness, and her reason to get up and be joyful. I can tell she found strength to overcome obstacles in many ways during her marriage to you. She was extremely talented, and you gave her the courage to be herself. What a great couple!

I love that she had such a love for birds. That shows her inner beauty, and who knows, if we come back to this life as something, maybe she is a beautiful bird that visits your window sill from time to time.

You have not only given a blessed tribute to your lovely wife here, Venkat, but you also took the time to try to teach values that you have learned through the beauty of marriage and the sadness of death. I think you taught well here a message of appreciating and loving a person while you have them. If you have a great union and one passes suddenly, you will have such fond memories of that loved one. Your memories of your beloved were beautiful. :)

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on July 14, 2016:

Thanks for returning and expressing your concern. I will try to make it featured again with some edits when I find time.

Greensleeves Hubs from Essex, UK on July 14, 2016:

It is a shame it is not featured, given the subject matter. Maybe traffic is low, but the quality and value for readers of this hub is much higher than on many featured hubs I have seen. People should be able to access it easily.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on July 14, 2016:

Thanks, Alun. I very much appreciate your feelings on reading this hub even though it is unfeatured since some months due to lack of traffic and lack of search results. And thanks for such nice comment and feedback.

I am really proud of her and remember her daily with love and admiration.

Greensleeves Hubs from Essex, UK on July 14, 2016:

This was very touching and heartfelt Venkatachari, and I am sure it struck a chord with so many, bringing tears to eyes. One part - the night of your wife's death with your son and you - brought back poignant memories of the death of my mother. The whole piece in fact was poignant.

So many of the reminiscences - the birds, her singing, her handiwork (and the evidence of that handiwork which you kept) - all demonstrate the depth of your feeling, and although it sounds like she had a hard life in many ways, and may have struggled with lack of health, with lack of warmth from some relatives, and lack of money, it seems there were treasures, and the greatest of those is the treasure of love which you shared. Many go through life without love, so take comfort from the fact that you were both rich in what really mattered.

There is only one sentence I must take issue with, when you say ' it was her bad luck to marry me.' I suspect from the way you write that it was her good luck to marry you, as it was yours to marry her.

I hope all is as well with you today as it can be, and with your family too. Alun

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on August 13, 2015:

Thank you, Sarah, for the visit and a nice comment.

Sarah Bunker from Weymouth, Dorset on August 13, 2015:

A lovely, inspirational tribute to your wife. I'm so sorry for your loss she sounded like a wonderful woman.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on June 09, 2015:

Thank you, Akriti. I value your visit and such nice comment.

Akriti Mattu from Shimla, India on June 09, 2015:

May she always rest in peace.

Memories last forever. They do. This is a beautiful dedication. Voted up :)

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on June 09, 2015:

I am very glad at your comment, Padmaja. Thanks for this visit and nice comment.

Padmajah Badri from India on June 09, 2015:

Memories never fade.They still live within ourselves.It is very difficult to digest the loss of someone so close to heart.Your hub portrays the sensitivity and emotional moments one could face at a later stage of life.A must read hub for those who prioritize relationships and know about their value .Thank you for writing this hub.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on June 08, 2015:

Great to see you, Moonlake! Thanks for the visit and a very nice comment.

moonlake from America on June 08, 2015:

Very lovely tribute to your sweet wife. I'm so sorry for your loss it very sad to lose a spouse and it takes time to get over it. You never get over it I guess you just learn to live with the loss.

May she rest in peace.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on April 29, 2015:

True. We excuse often that there is no time for them. But, the real gap is recognised when they are no more. You might be having his remembrances with you or you can spend with his family some times to bridge the gap being felt by you now.

Thanks for your visit and comment.

Sanjay Sharma from Mandi (HP) India on April 29, 2015:

A heartfelt tribute to a spouse. May her soul rest in peace. Generally. we forget that the time we spend with our loved ones is short lived. Our ego and personal barriers sometimes keep us away from our close friends. I want to abridge the gap which developed between me and my friend, but he is no more.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on April 02, 2015:

Thanks Graham, for your nice comment. Yes, men also need to shed tears to get relief from grief, but may not be openly. My wife used to tell that men should not weep like women. I think it is because others in the family may get sinking feeling if their head himself weeps.

Graham Lee from Lancashire. England. on April 02, 2015:

Hi Venkat. May God keep her soul indeed for she did indeed have her struggles. You were there for her, you were there for your son, you were there for all your family. Nothing more can be asked of you. Venkat, even men can shed a tear.


Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on March 31, 2015:

Thanks for the visit and this nice comment. It's true remembering and sharing with others gives some relief mostly.

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on March 31, 2015:

What a precious way to honor the memory of this lady that you clearly loved with your whole heart.

Remembering the wonderful things that made us love our friend or family member helps to ease the pain of the loss; it does not make it go away but it does lessen it.

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on January 20, 2015:

Thank you very much Chitra, for your concern and nice comment and for your votes.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on January 20, 2015:

Such a touching and lovely tribute to your wife! So sorry to hear about her loss and how difficult it must have been to cope with this for you and your children.

Your love and respect for your wife can be easily seen in your hub. She sounds like an ideal Indian wife and mother. Her good deeds and sweet memories will always be your strength.

Voted up and thanks for sharing your personal story with us. God bless you and your children.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on January 19, 2015:

Thank you, Radhika. I am glad to see you are sharing it also. Thanks for your nice comment and sharing also.

Thank you for your visit, nice comment and votes.

Mary Craig from New York on January 13, 2015:

I have a feeling Venkatachari your wife felt as blessed to have you for a spouse as you felt having her.

She sounds (and looks) like a beautiful woman. She weathered a very difficult life. I voted this up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

Venkatachari M (author) from Hyderabad, India on January 13, 2015:

Thank you Sue, for your nice comment and concern. Actually, I don't recall that night's memories any mor. Instead I always think of my life with her and the happy days and deem myself to be lucky for being so many years with her.

This is a lovely and very touching tribute to your wife. She sounds like she was a wonderful person. I'm sorry that she faced difficulties in her life, but I'm sure that you brought her great happiness with your love.

This is a very fine tribune to your wife. I lost my husband just a month ago. I can relate to your grief. It sure is different without them after so many years together. Our 41st anniversary would have been Jan. 26. We were also married in 1974.

Thanks you for sharing the courage and perseverance of your dear wife. So happy that you were there to stand beside her. May the good times you shared continue to comfort you; she is comfortable now.

What a lovely tribute to your wife. Your love and admiration shine through in each and every word. Hold onto those dear memories. She was very lucky to be loved by someone such as you.

M. Venkatachari - this is the most beautiful tribute to your wife. It brought tears to my eyes. You obviously loved and respected this lady so much and she did work so hard under challenging conditions all her life to make other peoples' lives worthy. In doing this she proved herself to be such a very worthy person. I cannot imagine growing up in a family where there was no love, blaming me for my father's death all those years. A baby and young child need so much love and encouragement to grow into capable self-confident adults and your wife had nobody to guide her in this way except two years with her grandmother. You said that she was "unlucky to marry you". I think she was the luckiest person in the world to find and marry you. After all her years of being unloved and mistreated, you came into her life and gave her love and appreciation for everything she did for you and the boys you both created. I think you have wonderful memories to live with, except for the night that she died suddenly. that is very sad and I encourage you not to think about that night so often. Instead remember the wonderful times you had together and the kind and wonderful person she was. You were lucky to have each other for those 38 years.

As in the west, we in the east also regard our spouse as our better half ( Ardhangini ). This wonderful tribute shows your true love and respect for your wife. I love the concluding para that tells about you expressing your gentle feelings to her.

She was a brave lady who faced all turmoil with great courage and showered her love and affection. You have really brought forth a great hub about such a great soul. I pray God to rest her in all peace in Heaven ! Voted up and shared.

Hi that was such a beautiful piece.

Your wife's liufe has not been in vain.

Her love for you and the children and the neighbours makes her a role model. She will continue to live in the minds of all the children and the people that were around her. May God continue to give you the peace beyond all understanding to cope with this loss and may your children also the given this peace. Keep on blogging. You are an inspiration.

Phyllis Doyle Burns from High desert of Nevada. on January 12, 2015:

Venkatacharim, this is such a beautiful tribute to your lovely wife. You are both very lucky to have found each other and share life. I voted Up, Awesome, Beautiful, and Interesting. I also voted Useful, for to read how much you love and appreciate her is a message to others to appreciate and respect one's spouse for all they do and for all they are. Your wife must be very proud and loving of you as she rests in peace. I enjoyed learning about your wife through you. Thank you for sharing your tribute to such a lovely lady.

Sunil Kumar Kunnoth from Calicut (Kozhikode, South India) on January 12, 2015:

Very touching, emotional and convincing. Your love is well reflected in these lines which is nothing but a poem. Her love and talent are well described here. I share your feeling. I understand your pain. My tributes to the departed soul. I too hope God will keep her soul always happy. The god will definitely convey your love story to her tonight and she will be so happy and proud of her loving and caring husband. God bless you.
