Thank you for sharing your life with me. I never knew what true love was until I met you. I was so looking forward to spending many more years with you. I am grateful that you didn't suffer but I am angry you were taken too soon. My heart aches bad right now. All of me loves all of you!! May you rest in peace and I know you are reunited with Alice, Paul and all of your loved ones who are already there. Goodnight sweetheart!! Until we meet again.
