Chick passed away today. As the last few days had become increasingly painful and long for Chick and Louise, prayers of peace and comfort had begun in abundance. Today the prayers of peace were answered for Chick. Though there is relief in his new peace, there is sadness in Chick’s absence on this Earth. Today, Louise lost her best friend and love of sixty-six years and there is an intense amount of loneliness in her heart. Louise knows that one day they will be united again, but until then she must journey on alone.
On October 30th, 1946 two souls were joined as one under God and before family and friends. Two lives were melded into one and went on to create a family full of their love. Today, though the lives have been temporary separated, is not the end of this love story. The love story of Chick and Louise lives on in their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In all that they accomplish and all they become. There is no end to such a love story because there is no end to true love.
And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” - Luke 23:43
