You are so very missed and Loved, the struggles are so real and some days are still so hard to get through. What is seen on the outside does not show the battle going on inside. I do now spend more times remembering the laughs that were shared ( which were a daily thing) . Thank you for being a wonderful husband, my best friend and for giving us those as they make this journey through life easier. Although it has been 23 years your presence is always felt, and held very close at heart. You were one of a kind and with a heart bigger than the world. I will Always Love You,

Lauri Griffith
