It's been a year today since you were called home by God. Everyday is so hard without you being with us. So many unanswered questions still haunt my mind. The only way any of us who love you so much can make it through the day is knowing you are in a much happier place. I am proud to have been a part of your life and loved you more than I ever thought I did. Your legacy will continue on through a beautiful son you provided. He loves his daddy and we will make sure he never forgets you and what a great man/father you were. Until we meet again.
