Willie, My Beloved, God's Gift
October the First, 2004
I join with you in Sweet Accord for life,
with the Highest as Ruler,
and with Love, Loyalty, and Friendship
the theme of our union.
I will be by your side
at all times fair or foul,
and support you in your life's aims.
In all decisions I agree
to abide by the Highest Thought
whoever has it first.
I will offer you shelter
from the storms of life
and celebrate the sunny times.
I will comfort you in sickness
and work alongside you
to bring about our mutual goals.
May I never take you for granted.
With this ring I thee wed,
to have and to hold,
in sickness and in health,
to share our fortunes
whether great or small,
to love, honor, cherish, and obey,
until death do us part.
Willis K. Riehle & Nancy Adams
Yesterday it's a year since
You drove in my driveway
Wearing that smile
This morning I awoke in your arms
And with you
Tracing my face
with a fingertip

Fly Free, My Friend
Willis K. Riehle, beloved husband of Nancy Adams,
sailed off on permanent vacation on the balmy evening of November 15, 2007, from
Yuma, Arizona, the couple's winter home. He had been engaging a human experience
since March 9, 1945.
He was accompanied by helpers on all sides
guiding him to his destination in Focus 27, and freedom from Time and Space. When his wife had suggested, a few days prior
to sailing, that hiding of his profound intelligence would be rendered
transparent across the Divide, Mr. Riehle wryly agreed to drop the fašade.
Nancy, waved from the dock for 90 minutes after departure, until his ship was
out of sight over the horizon. The couple plan to keep in touch in subspace,
unless Mr. Riehle receives a new assignment.
will continue to live in Coos Bay at the couple's summer home.
leaves a son, James, who is serving in Iraq, a daughter-in-law and 3
grandchildren living in Kansas, and a stepson, Kirwan Fox, who resides in Coos
preceded on vacation by his daughter, Rebecca.
Let there remain
No loving word unsaid.
