Honoring Those We’ve Lost

Stan Writes to Honor His Wife June

stan and jusne berg

“I FOUND AN ORCHID WHILE SEARCHING FOR A ROSE”(Stan Berg’s Revision of the Carl Smith’ 1950 Lyrics)

I found an Orchid while searching for a Rose

The Orchid that I found dear June was you

The Orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly.

And thrills the fairest ladies of the land

While the rose is a flower of love and romance

When placed beside the Orchid…

The Rose could not compare…

I found an Orchid while searching for a rose

The Orchid that I found dear June was you

The Roses I had been searching for

All proved to be untrue

The Orchid that I found dear June was you

While the roses have all lost their color

my orchid June remained the same…

I found an Orchid while searching for a rose

The Orchid that I found dear June was you

June is now in Heaven as we face the future years

But someday heaven’s wonders will all erase my tears

I found an Orchid while searching for a Rose

That Orchid dear June was you…
