Saturday is the funeral of the sweet wife of my brother , David. Her name is Reina Arce Leddy. When they were married the theme song of their wedding was the song from Ice Castles ” Through the Eyes of Love.”
My brother is going to be singing that song to his sweetheart at the funeral. Music was central to their lives. It embodied their love. She passed away suddenly and in this overarching tragedy, it is their love that shines through.
I honor her and my brother. I am humbled by their love so rare.
A wonderful tribute to a wonderful couple. Thank you for sharing.
I never met them but I feel as if I know them through all the stories from Tim. I feel their hearts and I can visualize her spirit flow throughout the family. JP, as this song is playing I cry joyful tears to not have met a wonderful woman in person, but joyful tears to be apart of a woman so miraculous I can feel her in my soul. One love so rare, one love we are all blessed to witness. May Reina fly with the winds and rest in blessed peace. To Dave, your love with Reina will endure all, continue to believe and keep your faith. Smile for she is smiling right at you. Live, for that is Reina’s life she has instilled in you. Laugh for they are always the sound of music she filled in your heart. Blessed be!
Let go of your tears
and you will see the light.
Let go of your worries
for tomorrow will be all right.
Let go of your troubles
or you may lose your peace
Let go of your fears
so you may find your dreams
You will find your life
is more reasonable to live.
You will find your burden
getting lighter like your soul.
You will find happiness
always waiting on your way.
You will find heaven
getting nearer each day.
Beautiful words. Thank you.
What a lovely tribute. So sweet that your brother is honoring the love of his life that way. It’s going to be a beautiful service.
Thank you, Antonia. He feels it is the only appropriate and meaningful way to honor his sweetheart.
Wonderful tribute. True Love is rare and you say it so well. God talks to us in sad moments, and music brings the feelings out of us at these moments. Very nice. My thoughts and prayers with you in this sad time.
