ORIGINALLY PAINTED BY KATHY BOECHER, WITH THE HELP OF MY BEST FRIEND, PAUL BOECHER©
From the day we first met, there was something about you that made my heart smile,
We enjoyed each other’s laughter and sense of humor all through high school,
And day by day grew into forever friends,
Though we were not what you’d expect of a couple, God had plans for us,
Each day since we’ve grown together like two peas in a pod,
Working together, struggling together, building our family and faith together,
Even in our old age, we have found joy in each other’s happiness and laughter.
My friend, my partner, my confidante, my love,
You still know how to make me smile – giggle – belly laugh,
Because God made you just for me,
And we both know that our best friend is Jesus.
