As I sit here at your final resting place I want you to know I miss you and will never forget you. Even though it has been 22 years since you left this world, you remain in my heart and will always be a part of my soul.

We shared so many happy occasions together with enough laughs to last a lifetime.

I’m sorry we did not get a chance to have our kids grow up together .....but even still, I imagine how it would have been. Lots of smiles, laughs and more shared joy. My kids would’ve loved you....and you them.

As you already know, I will never forget you and I will always continue to visit you.

I thank you for being such an instrumental part of my life and for guiding me throughout- even after your passing.
