  • My true love. My love of my life!
    I am so grateful for every day we spent together. They were the best days of my life. Thank you for letting me into your life, being close to you is the best feeling I’ve ever known. You brightened each day with your smile, love and laughter. You always brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart. The life we had was truly magical, I will never forget it. I loved how you let me see the world through your eyes. You shared your knowledge and ideals with me. I loved being with you, never wanted to be without you. You showed me unconditional love, kindness, tenderness and happiness. We traveled to so many fascinating places together side by side with my hand in yours. I loved our picnic outings, walks with our puppy through the park, off road adventures, so many fun trips and movie time at home together. Our love for each other was true and grew with each day. You are so much a part of me, my joy, my smile, my happiness, my love, my spirit. My soul is lost without you, completely broken. I am devastated that my love of my life has been ripped away from me. Life as I knew it won’t ever be the same. Somehow I must continue on without you. I am truly grateful to have known you and so thankful to have had so much time together. I will always remember your touch, your kiss, the way you’d look at me, your smile, your laugh, and the stories you would tell. Love you more than you know.
    Yours Forever!

    May Peace Be With You
