In Loving Memory of My Husband
It’s hard to believe, you’re no longer here. Words cannot describe how this makes me feel…
You’ve passed on to the other side, though I wish you could still be here with me…
You were a remarkable man. Dependable, loving and caring.
You were the center of my world. You were one in a million to me…
You made me laugh, you made me smile. You were my companion and dear friend.
You were a wonderful husband from beginning to end.
Your love showed me how good life could be, your death showed me how cruel life sometimes
is… But good or bad, life has to go on even though it’s not easy to carry on.
Forever will live on, in my heart and mind. Forever will you live in my thoughts and
never die. With love always, I remember you, with fond memories, I think of you…
With hope I believe we’ll meet again. Somewhere, somehow, someplace…
Love, Your Wife



Dad,
We’ll always remember that special smile, that caring heart, that warm embrace you always
gave us. You being there for Mom and us through good and bad times, no matter what. We’ll
always remember you Dad because they’ll never be another one to replace you in our hearts
and the love we will always have for you.
Your Children



God Saw You Getting Tired
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you
and whispered “Come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away,
and although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest, God broke our hearts
to prove to us he only takes the best
Your Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren
The Love of My Life
Louis Bell leave behind his wife, supporter, companion and best friend,
Glenda Bell of forty-nine years. Glenda and Louis spent many years together
enjoying life, one another’s company, time and affection for one another.
Anytime you saw Louis you better believe Glenda was right beside him, they
were the Bonnie and Clyde to our family a true example of what love should
look like, but most importantly their relationship showed us what sticking
together was all about! Louis loved walking through neighborhood (Berwyn)
with his wife, playing softball, fishing and if you knew Louis Bell, we all know
the party didn’t start until Louis entered the Room!! Because dancing was
one of his favorite things to do. Louis and Glenda loved being around their
children and grandchildren, enjoying family gatherings and unconditional
love. Being able to watch Louis and Glenda for forty-nine years, showed us
the true meaning of love and family. It has been inspiring to us all and will
continue to carry on his legacy. Long live the king, Lou Bell.
