Viola Mabel Brecken

In loving memory of Viola Mabel Brecken

Beautiful companion, wife and mother for 72 years.

May 3, 2004

The moment you had passed away,

My heart had split in two,

The one side filled with memories,

The other died with you.

I think of you in silence

I often speak your name,

I feel again the bitter blow

That never should have came.

Each morning when I awake

I know that you are gone

No one knows the heartache

As I try to carry on

My heart still aches in sadness

Secret tears will flow

What it meant to lose you

No one will ever know.

My thoughts are always with you

Your place no one can fill

In life I loved you dearly

In death I love you still.

They say time heals everything,

But I know this isn’t so

Because it hurts as much today

As it did one year ago.

Forever loved and missed

Husband Elmer and family.
