To My Husband and our father:
Babe, remember how we use to laugh about life being so weird? Two kids sitting next to each other in the 8th grade, totally infatuated with each other; not realizing that someday they would end up making a home and a family together? How at the age of 20 they decided to get married and thought they knew it all? How everyone told them it could never work? How they lasted 22 years together and loved each other more and more every day? Today I sit here and think about our life together and realize how much I cherish the short time we had. We learned to make each other laugh, we learned how to depend on each other, we learned to support each other’s decisions, and most important we learned to be a family. It was not always easy but we never gave up. During the past 3 months I have gotten through each day thinking of and enjoying all of our memories. You are gone from us today but you leave behind the best part of you: Heather, Thomas, and Brittany. I look at them every day and see you, Heather looking exactly like you, Thomas having that laid back attitude, and Brittany having that dry sense of humor. As I have been trying to get through the loss of your smirkish smile, the touch of you, and that morning phone call asking me “Did I tell you today how much I love you”; I hear your voice through the kids saying to me, “Mom, can you change how things are? “No”, “then no sense in crying about it, let’s make the best of the situation.” With these words I realize you are and will always be with us….! In the short time we had together we were able to create 3 wonderful children that I promise you, I will always remind them of how wonderful their father was.
“Did I tell you today how much I love you?”
With all my love,
