Below is a passage that was very near and dear to Norma and Manny:

Let me hold your hand as we go down hill,

We’ve shared our strength and we share it still.

It hasn’t been easy to make the climb,

But the was was eased by your hand in mine.

Like the lake, our life has had ripples too,

All-health, and worries, and payments due.

With happy pauses, along the way,

A graduation, a raise in pay.

At the foot of the slope, we will stop and rest.

Look back if you wish, we’ve been truly blessed.

We’ve been spared the grief of being torn apart

By death, or divorce, or a broken heart.

The view ahead is one of the best.

Just a little farther, and then we can rest ~

We move more slowly, but together still.

Let me hold your hand as we go downhill.
