June, I Shared My World With You

 June and Stan 1991

---

In 1969, George Jone's introduced a hit single called: "I'll Share My World With You"...it became number 2 on the charts for a single and later number 5 as an album...The writer of the song was Ben Wilson...in November of 1951, Stan proposed marriage to June and June accepted...June and Stan were married on 16 August 1952...this hit song by George Jone's was slightly revised by Stan to reflect June and Stan's marriage life interrupted by Alzheimer's when June was taken home to Heaven in October of 2008...Stan's revision suggests a lonely grieving Stan awaiting a heavenly reunion with June!

Alzheimer’s is noted as an “always terminal disease” of  a slow and long progression…a disease, always measured in years and not months…for those losing a loved one to Alzheimer's, they are traveling two paths of grief...the first path is as they watch the  slow but steady march of the disease to the eventual certain death of the loved one....in June's case a 12 year journey into the shadwows of Alzheimer's...then the 2nd and more traditional path of grief immediately follows after the death of the loved one...

(A Revised George Jones 1969 hit single)

June, I shared my world with you
and everything in it that I own


you gave me the sunshine of your smile
always fresh like the morning dew…

 its no good now that I’m alone
June, can you see that I'm waiting…
to once again share my world with you

June, I shared my world with you
and everything in it that I owned


June, I gave you my heart
You're the only love it's known
June, can you see that I’m waiting…
to once again share my world with you

June, I shared my world with you
and everything in it that I owned


we shared a lifetime of  memories
Memories for you June and for me…
and dreamed of a time that would never be

June, its a lonely lonely world without you

June, can you see that I’m waiting…
to once again  share my world with you

June's Passing

June 1994

After an almost 12 year journey into the shadows of Alzheimer's, early one morning in late October 2008, an exhausted June felt God's gentle touch on her shoulder and heard the words: "Come Home June!" As June lay like a wounded soldier on a battlefield, it was God's Angels that ushered June into a Heavenly Kingdom to the sound of a chorus of Angels...and into June's new home, a "Mansion on the Hilltop", where there is no pain, nor illness nor tears...June's funeral notice as published in the Minneapolis Star in October 2008 can be seen on this website in the drop down menu under the "In Memoriam" label - just Click on:
