It's been a busy couple of days with the kids all together. Makes the day brighter to be with them. We love and miss you so much. I don't know how 11 years have passed. We continue on in our lives with a piece of our hearts gone forever. Then this day comes and I still feel the loss of you so deeply. I wonder if that will ever go away. I try to stay strong but some days it's just too much and the tears flow. Today is one of those days. I still see your smile and hear your laugh. You were such a great man.. A great father and a great friend.. But you were my best friend.. My partner.. My perfect match.. You are irreplaceable. I love you so much still.. And forever. Thank you for loving me.. Always and forever .. Me
