"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
love leaves a memory no one can steal."
-- Supposedly from an Irish headstone

Dear Robert -- In four days it will be sixteen years since you were taken from this life. I have loved and missed you every one of those days. I have both laughed and cried over memories of you. I pray that you can look down upon me and somehow let me know if you feel that the choices I have made in your absence are good ones. If you can let me know, please don't be subtle. Allow the message to hit me over the head so that I'll have no chance of missing it!

With love,

Linda Jones
