My wonderful husband, this will make the 31st Thanksgiving Day that you will be missing from my life. I cannot bear to celebrate what you always called "your" day and would rather sit and reminisce of the wonderful times we had. Although I miss you every day, there are just some days that have "special" meanings for us. Loving and Missing you so much, because Our Love is Forever...
