I have a video of the ceremony that I will post as soon as I can get tech support in New Jersey to figure out why the software that came with the new camcorder will not allow an upload to the computer. I hope all will take the time to watch three minutes of a lifetime make its way into the sea of love.

The Sea Of Love



Waves of the rolling sea tossed against the small boat.

Waves of emotion consumed a heart already broke.

A Box of memories and a red and white wreath held in hand.

A Release that was born of grief upon my promise miles from land.


With eyes cast downward I starred at the memories in which I held.

I spoke a few words in remembrance; I said a soft and solemn prayer.

I then with a gentle kiss sealed the box and gave Leah over to the oceans mighty swells.


I watched through hot tears as what was so much a part of me drift gently away.

I listened to the vast oceans silence; I watched heartbroken as I gave Leah back to the sea this day.


“Oh Lord I cried, bless all those that both see and of these words hear”.

“Bless them with a Godly love that they shall share with those they hold so dear.”

“Keep now their hearts fixed and their eyes secure to the one that they so love”

And God, oh sweet God, bless our box of memories on its lone journey with a special touch from above”.



J. Allen Wilson

Words fail - but God's love never does, nor does your love for Leah. What's most important is the box of memories you keep in your heart.

(((HUGS))), love and prayer, Karla.

(((HUGS))), much love, and continued prayers!~

As always, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :)

Try to have a happy Thanksgiving tomorrow; you are in my thoughts! Know that she's still with you in spirit; she's watching out over you! :)

Tech support in NJ, sounds like a contradiction in terms to me...I await the video & I hope, even without Leah, you tried to stay UP on your visit to Tybee...Ed
