LOVE IS STILL IN THE AIR

Mary Isabella Widdrington, who now resides in Ryton Towers, and John William Widdrington married in St Andrew’s Church in Heddon, when they were both 26 years of age after meeting in their teens.

They celebrated their 68th anniversary before John sadly passed away.  After John’s death, Mary started to write poems by way of searching for solace and comfort.  Her poems are all about John, their lifetime of love and keeping his memory alive.  We think they’re beautiful Mary!

 

“Dear John

From eventide to daybreak

When I’m all alone

How I long for you to come home

But this will not come true

Instead…I’ll find my way to you

You gave me love in the greatest measure

And left me lots of memories to treasure

All my love as always

Mary”
