Can it already be 19 years since we lost you? Sometimes it seems like forever ago, and other times the feelings are so strong it seems like yesterday. You are loved and remembered, and no, I still haven't gotten over you. I have moved on in life and it is a good life, but you are in my thoughts daily and in my heart forever.
The memories of the night you died are still so vivid. I still live through that night not only on your anniversary but at odd times when a sight, a smell, especially a song reminds me of you. Through the years I've come across people who share a memory of you - it fills my heart to hear their stories.

Watch over us, Dan and I. Did you find Oakley? She crossed the Rainbow Bridge and I smile with I picture you holding her.

When I married my "new" husband I had my/our wedding band melted down and put in my new ring. You are a part of everything in my life.

With all my love.
