To my wonderful husband, another sleepless night thinking of you. Wishing you were here with me. Time is going so slowly that sometimes I am amazed at how long it has been since we were together. I thought we would grow old together and here I am doing it alone. Missing you so much and loving you since "Our Love is Forever". Big hugs my love.
