33 years ago this evening, our lives were shattered. You were only 33 years old...and getting ready to start a new journey in life...but that life was cut short way too soon. I can't express the emptiness I feel without you here; I felt such a connection with you and was truly devastated by this senseless killing.
All my love until we meet again...
