It is with a heavy heart that I share that my husband, Arvid, who supported me without hesitation in all that I was called by God to do, changed his address to heaven on May 28th. I would like to share with you this tribute that I wrote for him.
A Tribute to my Husband Arvid
October 6, 1947 – May 28, 2020
From the first time I heard him say my name, to the first time we kissed.
From the first time we talked for hours, to the first time we woke up in each other’s arms.
From the first time we said the word “love”, to the moment we knew we’d never want to say “goodbye.”
Falling in love with him was the BEST thing that ever happened to me.
Hand in hand, we met life’s changes and challenges.
Together, we made a beautiful family and a loving and lasting partnership.
He was the quiet strength that I leaned on, the steady presence I counted on for so much.
He was the kind of husband who put his heart into everything he did.
The kind of man who was strong enough to show his gentle side.
Who was not afraid to dream or speak his mind.
The kind of man who listened and looked out for others.
He was always there for me in the ways that mattered most.
He was the one I could not wait to see at the end of a long day.
He kept me laughing through life’s ups and downs.
He was the one who lived for God and showed it by loving me with a strong and gentle heart.
I had the privilege of loving Arvid and having him in my life as my husband.
He was my best friend and supporter and I will hold him in my heart forever.
I will be forever grateful to God for bringing us together.
