My love another year has passed but you are never far from my mind and my heart. You were supposed to be with me so we can grow old together. After all these years I still don't understand why you had to go. I thank you for always loving me. Julian and I talk about you a lot and he misses you also. In my darkest moments I still cry for you and I'm still hurting. My only solace is that one day I'll see you again, until then, I love you with all my heart.....I miss you so so so much....
