As with June, my mother was the first to cross.
My mother remained by my father's side since she met him at the age of 16 while he was stationed in Hamburg, Germany serving in the British Army, up to the time they came to the United States, raised six children, until her death.
Their unconditional love embraces me, still, and always will.
sung beautifully by JTune and Johnny Cash.
The song "The Far Side Banks of Jordan" is sung beautifully by June and Johnny Cash; a spiritual about a loved one leaving but waiting for the other. I can't help wonder of my elderly father's feelings now that my mother's gone.
