My memories of you have been fondly on my mind the past several years as I age. We should be watching our grandchildren grow up. I've never remarried and I miss you more and more everyday. I still feel your breath on the back of my neck. I loved how you would brag about me to your police friends about the littlest things I would do.

I often think about what our lives together would be like if that final day had not arrived. I miss you and I will always love you.

Your loving wife
