My darling husband, I was once told that "time heals all "but his is just not true.. I find myself thinking of you so much.. It's been such a long time since I have just "held your hand" or hugged and kissed you.. It gets tougher (not easier) as time goes on.. Time goes by ever so slowly but I know "our time" will come.. So until "we meet again", I will have to do with remembering the wonderful time we had together.. and I never forget that "Love is Forever".. at least for us..
